    The Bisi Silva Grant is dedicated to the founding director of the CCA (Center for Contemporary Art) in Lagos, Nigeria, who died, far too early, in January 2019. Through her initiative, co-operation with the Summer Academy has been carried on since 2012, awarding several students from African countries grants for participation in our courses. The Society of Friends has now established a grant dedicated to Bisi Silva, one of the most important figures in the African art world. The number of grants annually depends on the sum raised. A grant covers fees as well as travel and accommodation expenses for students.
