The goal of the RESIDENCE EXCHANGE program is to provide a physical research opportunity for a Detroit artist to visit Zimbabwe and a Zimbabwean artist to visit Detroit. The mission is for the artists to explore each others culture and artistic community. This program was initiated through a Knights Foundation and in partnership with Njelele Art Station in Harare, Zimbabwe. It is made possible through the additional partnership with
