BERLIN – DAR ES SALAAM
Explore (unspoken) cultural practices of urban heritage
Make room for collaboration and mutual learning
Allow non-conventional agencies (voices) to emerge
Bring art into the public sphere, from the city to the city by the city
Throughout the year 2016, Nafasi in Dar es Salaam and ZK/U in Berlin will host residencies for five Africa-based artists and five Germany-based artists. Each residency is six-weeks long and individual, so that the artists can share more with local residents and immerse in the atmosphere and culture of their host city.
