The first phase of IFAA 2015 to 2025 took place in Paris at Cite Internationale des Arts. It in total brought 40 artists who resided, spread over a period of a year in Paris. The project included a collaboration with the World Climate Summit, that included the presentation of IFAA Sustainable projects at ArtCOP21, in collaboration with ArtCOP21, and On the Move. IFAA Paris included several exhibitions and public space interventions. These included among others the Silent Sky project by artist Rob Sweere. Due to the scale of the project and financial challenges which required Sithabile Mlotshwa to raise 36 million euros, the IFAA project is currently put on hold. More information coming soon.
