About Tilting AIR
TiltingAIR has supported artists from around the globe and nurtured the growing arts community here on Fogo Island for over a decade. The residency serves visual artists, writers and craftspeople, by providing time and space to make their work in the historic fishing community of Tilting on Fogo Island.
TiltingAIR consists of two renovated historic homes built over 100 years ago and the artists have studio access to do their work. While being immersed in the community of Tilting, the environment is simple and offers seclusion and isolation to do one’s work. Artists are encouraged to engage with the residents of Tilting, absorb its 300 year old history and explore all of Fogo Island.
Over the years, our visiting artists have formed long enduring friendships with each other, with the people of Tilting and with the Island itself. Alumni of TiltingAIR return often to the Island on their own to continue their work and rekindle friendships, and the inspiration that originally brought them here.
