Green Olive Arts is an international art studio and urban art residency in Tetouan, Morocco, specializing in connecting the creatives of the world with the culture, beauty and creatives of Morocco through professional studio facilities, artist residencies, artist services, instructional programming, and international collaborative events.
Our Art Residency program is for artists of all disciplines, and provides a space for artists to travel away from their normal settings to do research and produce new works in a context offering an abundance of fresh inspiration. GOA offers fully equipped production spaces, and opportunities for interaction and collaboration with other local and international artists. Both shared and private studio spaces are available. The large size of GOA’s facilities also allows them to accommodate art-making tours and other arts-educational and study-abroad groups.
In addition to providing production space for groups and individuals, GOA offers its resident artists a wide array of concierge type services including arranging housing, tours, gallery connections, and access to essential art supplies and tools.
Tetouan, Morocco is the ideal art-making location. Tetouan is a jewel of a city, situated in the North of Morocco, on the North-Western tip of Africa. It is nestled up against the Mediterranean Sea in a beautiful valley where two mountain ranges meet. Many say that Tetouan is one of the most beautiful cities in Morocco. Its old city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a rich history and culture. Tetouan also touts Morocco’s most prestigious National Institute of Fine Art and has art “in its blood” on a grassroots level in a way that is rarely seen in this part of the world since it has been the starting place for the majority of Morocco’s artists.
