Thread Artist Residency

Thread is a site for artists to live and work in Sinthian, a rural village in Tambacounda, the southeastern region of Senegal. It houses two artists' dwellings, as well as ample indoor and outdoor studio space. Thread enables artists from Senegal and around the world to advance their own work in this exceptional setting and to work with the regional population to rekindle artistic practices and facilitate new ones.
