Assemblage invites you to join us for a panel discussion on residencies.
The artist residency is a contemporary phenomenon that allows artists to travel the world, explore and grow their practice, meet other artists and industry players from across the globe and strengthen their identity as an artist. A panel of Johannesburg based artists all recently returned from international residencies will share with us their experiences and knowledge.
Join us on Tuesday 8 Nov at 18:00 at the Assemblage artshub for an evening of discussion and information sharing.
