New Models: International Residencies
Tue 29 June 7:30pm AEST / 5:30pm HKT via Zoom
Art residencies enable artists to live and work outside their usual environments, providing time and space to reflect, discover and create work. There is a wide variety of organisational models and approaches to offering residencies, but they have objectives in common, such as providing an opportunity for the artist to develop their area of interest; create a new work or project by engaging with a local community or geography; demonstrating how artistic practices can stimulate engagement and positive change in communities; and fostering worldwide cultural exchange.
Our speakers will share their experiences in structuring and supporting residencies, how they engage with residency partners to advocate value, as well as reflecting on how they’ve adapted and responded to changing global circumstances and new forms of mobility.
Hosted by Janice Poon (Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts), joined by speakers Josephine Wai (Asian Cultural Council Hong Kong) and others to be announced.
The project is supported by the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations.
