We are looking for artists from across Africa, to be part of our 2019 creative program!

Visual art, experimental musicians, street artists, poets and story tellers, theoretically minded fashion and costume designers, plus other interesting forms of creativity.  We want you!

We are looking for artists who can showcase their art form to Australian audiences, as well as participate in artist led workshops, public talks and engage with community led initiatives. 

We will work with you to develop a program to showcase the best of your skills. Aside from your artistic talent, we seek artists who give back to their community, and those who stand for a greater purpose and cause. 

The next festival will be held in Adelaide - Australia,  February 2019. You must be available for the full duration of the festival (exact dates tbc). We cover travel and accomodation (inclusive VISA and insurance costs), as well as a  daily allowance in country, over the 10-day period. 

To apply, please contact Victoria Lewis - viclewis2004@yahoo.com, with the information outlined below. Expressions of interest close Friday 10 August 2018.

** We will only consider applications from artists who have a primary residence in an African country. Must have substantial portfolio of work (any art form). We will call for Australian based artists late 2018.

- Examples of your work, whatever art form it is - photos, video (most relevant). 

- Tell us about some of the initiatives you undertake in your community, and why you feel it is important to use art/music/creativity to create social change.

- What you can contribute to Sanaa Exhibition - i.e. art work, photography, art installation. Sanaa Exhibition is run as part of the festival platform, and is a showcase of work from up to 12 international artists. 

We are a community minded festival, run by a small team. If successful - you will become an integral part of this team. We seek the best outcomes for the community as well as our artists, and look for individuals who are willing to work collaboratively with Australian artists and festival organisers. An open mind, the ability to adapt to change and new environments is important - we will however help you along every step of the way! 

We look forward to hearing from you.
