The applications for our third Bubblegum Residency are now open and this it’s focused on
product designers. Although situated in Joburg — applications are also open to artists who live
outside of the city. However, these artists will be responsible for their own transport to and from
the city, as well as for their own accommodation and living expenses while in Johannesburg.
Multidisciplinary in nature; Bubblegum Residency is studio based and was established by the
founders of Bubblegum Club with a mission to support, platform, and develop the careers of
emerging artists through opportunities to create and sell work.
Participating artists will receive studio space, curatorial support, press and marketing support,
along with a stipend totalling R5000 for the production and exhibition of their work. The residency is purely production based, therefore, artists who submit developed ideas with a thorough production plan will stand a greater chance of selection. Applications are open to all product designers of all ages and the selected artist in residence will complete a month long full-time residency, where they will produce and install new work for exhibition at the Bubblegum Gallery in Braamfontein.
Application Deadline: 25 March 2021
