Welcoming Global Creatives in Morocco
Green Olive Arts is an artist residency and collaborative art space in Tetouan, Morocco
Our mission is to resource creative individuals of both emerging and established artistic talent from around the world in seasons of inspiration, production, collaboration and cultural exchange here in Morocco.
We invite artists from a wide range of disciplines and mediums to apply for residencies of 2-8 weeks during most months of the year. We accept visual artists, writers, poets, curators, scientists, choreographers, puppeteers, and more. Our local Selection Panel awards residencies based upon artistic excellence of current work and intended residency proposal. Artists are encouraged, but not required, to engage the local community as part of their residency through workshops, mural projects, performances, readings, round tables, and other presentations to bridge cultures and nurture creativity.
Are you an artist, writer, filmmaker, sculptor, photographer, or craftsperson in need of a season of focused research and production in the beautiful setting of an ancient culture?
