Triangle Network is a network of artists, artists’ groups and arts organisations, which has been growing since 1982 and is currently present in more than 30 countries. Through a programme of international residencies and workshops, together with public manifestations such as open days, exhibitions and a number of outreach activities, Triangle initiates the exchange of ideas through practice: a hands-on approach that relies on dialogue, process and openness.
Through its activities it has developed a unique web of exchange projects that connects local artists with their peers in neighbouring countries as well as further afield. In the last two decades, network partners have worked with over 4,000 artists. In Africa alone, more than a thousand artists have been to workshops and residencies within the continent or other parts of the world. Such exchange programmes have made a huge impact on artists’ careers, helping them to develop innovative and experimental work and raising their profile nationally and internationally.
