WE ARE COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITIES
Since the 15 of January 2017, Axon has partnered with SAFFCA to host an Artists Residencies’ Program at Entabeni Farm in one of the obvious stops on the South African Garden Route. The aims of the foundation are:
- To give art exposure through passion
To support, nurture and promote the visual art and artists of the southern part of the African continent
To participate in linking local to global.
Two artists are usually working at the same time at Axon’s Eco estate in Knysna. The one artist is from the southern part of the African continent while the other one would come as often as possible from anywhere on the globe. These double residencies will facilitate true socio-cultural and artistic encounters. The three double residencies periods are: 15 January to the end of March, 1 April to 15 June and 15 September to the end of November. The program is already established up to the end of 2018 and is extremely well received by overseas artists.
Axon is offering the artists within the framework of the SAFFCA residencies program the possibility to reside and work on their premises on the 39 hectares on which Entabeni Farm is established.
