/OUR RESIDENCY PROGRAM IS A PLATFORM DESIGNED FOR KNOWLEDGE AND EXCHANGE IN LAGOS, NIGERIA.

/ARTISTS WORKING IN VARIED MEDIA (VISUAL, PERFORMANCE, DIGITAL, WRITING, ALTERNATIVE TECHNIQUES, COOKING, BARTENDING) SPEND ONE MONTH AT 16/16 DURING WHICH THEY ARE GIVEN SPACE TO EXPERIMENT, EXPLORE AND BUILD THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND CREATIVE NETWORKS.

/THERE IS A STRONG FOCUS ON FLEXIBILITY FOR EVERY RESIDENT: 16/16 CUSTOMISES PROGRAMMING BY LEVERAGING COLLABORATIONS AND INTERACTIONS FOR ARTISTS WITH MEMBERS OF OUR DIVERSE AND ROBUST COMMUNITY BUILT OVER THE YEARS.

/THESE INTERACTIONS ARE NOT EXCLUSIVE TO THE ART WORLD AND CAN TAKE ON DIFFERENT FORMS SO THAT EACH IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE.

/DURING THE RESIDENCY, ARTISTS ARE REQUIRED TO HOLD A WORKSHOP OR OTHER ACTIVITY THAT FOCUSES ON KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE AND INTERACTION WITH THE PUBLIC.

/THROUGH AN EMPHASIS ON COLLABORATION AND DIALOGUE, AS OPPOSED TO MERE PRODUCTION OF ART, WE FOSTER A CROSS-DISCIPLINARY APPROACH TO CREATING ART.
