Visiting artists apartment & residency

August House has a fully furnished apartment on the 1st floor,  with an adjacent art studio space, available for rent to international visiting artists, wanting to stay short or long term at August House.

With an artist community of over fifty artists, August House residency offers the opportunity to collaborate, incubate and network among what is possibly the largest community in the country , of professional emerging contemporary African fine artists under one roof.

Applicants will need to be independent, self-sufficient and streetwise with a sense of adventure and passion for ‘un-gentrified’ inner city African vibes.

August House is located in End Street Doornfontein, in a predominantly residential and area with a rich street life.
