A Community to Collaborate and Co-create with

Calling promising artists and designers! Join the Studio Residency @ NAFA (SR @ NAFA) and be allocated a designated space to collaborate, create and build your networks.

Each residency can last between one and two months, and is aimed at fostering collaboration and interdisciplinary exchanges between staff, alumni, practising artists and designers, both local and international.

What is Covered?


Gain access to exclusive studio space and a myriad of workshops and facilities. Shout out if there are other areas you require support and the Special Projects Unit will work closely with you to accommodate your needs.

Please note that workshops are subject to availability, and as a resident, you are expected to be self-sufficient, so limited technical support is available.

When Can You Apply?


The programme takes place during the special term, from June to July.
