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 2-12 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. Residencies offer creatives an opportunity to spend time in another culture and context developing new work through research and dialogue with peers. Artists are encouraged to engage the local community as part of their residency through workshops, performances, readings, round tables, and collaboration to bridge cultures and nurture innovation.
Are you an artist, writer, filmmaker, sculptor, photographer, or craftsperson in need of a season of focused research and production in the rich setting of an ancient culture?
