Under the ACP-EU CULTURE PROGRAM Support to cultural and creative sectors in West Africa (2021-2023), Nubuke Foundation is offering artist-in-residency opportunities for up to 8 individuals within the 2022 – 2024 project cycles.

The Nubuke Foundation has been running informal community engagement programmes with the textile weaving and clay pottery communities in the Upper West region since 2010. Textile weaving collectives in Wa, Nadowli and Nandom have benefited from the programmes which have brought them together with artists and academics.

The aim of those interactions was to instigate ideas, exchanges, research, and informal conversations. Starting off to infuse the artisan community with new ideas through interaction with artists, the programme has led to the construction and opening of a centre in Loho, on the outskirts of Wa. This centre serves as a focal point for the weaving community and has become a nurturing and promotion space for textile-based practising artists.
