FULL RESIDENCY INFORMATION





VISUAL VOICES believes in the transformative power of art and seeks to support young visual artists from communities affected by violent conflict. We believe that such artistic expression contributes to a larger peacebuilding dialogue and promotes positive social change. Supporting a new community of artist-activists, we seek to challenge existing conflict narratives by creating space for the development of peace-supporting narratives. We achieve this through our thematic artist in residence programs and non-commercial exhibitions.

These projects demonstrate different approaches, with the central aspiration of linking artists and communities for productive actions in support of positive social change.
