If you are applying on behalf of an artist for a residency, workshop or exhibition - the Trust requests that the artist donates an artwork to the the African Arts Trust art collection. This collection will be used to promote African art and the artists represented in it and will at some point be donated to a public museum or sold and the proceeds used to make further grants.
