City of Capetown Emerging Artists Programme 2022 Application


City of Capetown Emerging Artists Programme 2022

Our Arts and Culture Department has developed the Emerging Artists Programme. The programme supports talented artists in accessing art supplies, finding exhibition and studio space and selling their work.

Apply for the Emerging Artists Programme

Under-resourced emerging artists based in Cape Town can benefit from opportunities to gain experience and exposure, showcase local talent and sell their works.

The City runs various workshops throughout the year, as part of the Emerging Artists Programme. The workshops are designed to give under-resourced artists from previously disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to gain experience and exposure, showcase their talent and sell their work.

There are two separate workshops and you can choose to take part in either, or both.

If you are selected for the capacity building workshop, you will take part in in-depth discussions on topics that cover how to source art supplies to finding exhibition and studio space.

If you are selected for the exhibition workshop, you will learn how to put an exhibition together and have the opportunity to showcase and sell your work at a venue in the city.

Take note of the following before submitting your application:

  • The programme is open to any emerging artist who is based in Cape Town and who either paints, sculpts or draws.
  • There is no age limit.
  • Workshops are held at various venues across the city during evenings and weekends. All sessions are compulsory.
