Art Moves Africa (AMA) is an international not for profit organization that aims to facilitate cultural and artistic exchange within Africa. AMA offers grants to artists and cultural practitioners living and working in Africa to travel within the African continent in order to engage in the exchange of information, the enhancement of skills, the development of informal networks and the pursuit of cooperation.
Through regular evaluations and statistics on applications received and on grants allocated to African cultural practitioners, AMA has been identifying needs within the African artistic mobility sector and has been developing its interventions as a grant-making organization accordingly.
Following this perspective, AMA has to date commissioned two studies, both focusing on mobility in East Africa. These identified the main actors in the East African performing arts and visual arts sectors, and analysed the frequency of artistic mobility from that region towards the whole African continent.
After the success of its first two research initiatives, AMA is launching a new study that will focus on Central Africa. To this end, AMA is recruiting a researcher who will collaborate with the Research & Communications coordinator in the elaboration of the study. S/he will be responsible for conducting fieldwork and drafting the report.
The study will cover a period of four months, from March to June 2015. The researcher will be traveling extensively within Central Africa in April and/or May. S/he will be expected to submit the report before June 15.
- Identification and mapping of available infrastructure and human resources.
- Identification and analysis of opportunities and the major obstacles of mobility in Central Africa.
- Proposal of feasible and practical solutions for the development of mobility.
