About this opportunity eggplant

The inaugural Sasa Nairobi Artist Fellowship is part of the Goethe-Institut Nairobi’s Visual art programme that aims at giving artists the space and resources to present concept based exhibitions. The fellowship programme attempts to bridge the gap between artistic scholarship, reasearch and practise and is designed to provide structured support to mid-career artists and curators to help them advance to the next stage in their careers.

Applicants are requested to demonstrate a clear vision for the next stage of their professional or artistic practice and how they would benefit from this opportunity. Shortlisted candidates will be selected based on the merit of their artwork and a demonstrated ability to reach stated goals. The selection committee will comprise 2 representatives from the Goethe-Institut as well as an independent Board of 3 Artistic Advisors. Five artists will be selected to receive a full range of career support during the two-year Fellowship period.


Each artist will receive a stipend of Ksh 10,000 per month for a period of 10 months and a total material/research budget of Ksh 25,000. This will also include a Library membership card to allow access to the Goethe-Institut Art Books collection.


For visual artists from Kenya.
