Since 2002 Kulturforum Sud-Nord has hosted dozens of artists, writers and filmmakers, who came to do research and create new site-specific works. Our space is located 20 min west from Cotonou on the coastal road direction Ouidah. It allows both working in the 2 million city during the day and taking a retreat in a quite semi-rural area. The beach is 300 m from the center, and the houses are spaced generously in an 8000 sqm garden.
The content of your project should correspond or dialogue with 3 themes mentioned in the section “About Us”. The duration of the residence can be between 10 days to 3 months.
Project proposals can be sent continuously to firstname.lastname@example.org
They should be 3 - 5 pages, can be in English, French or German.
Please include 3-5 images of previous works or links to websites, a brief CV and a photo of your self.
Kulturforum Sud-Nord cannot finance your trip, stay, or production, but can help you to find sponsors, and issue a letter of invitation, once your proposal has been accepted.
