Program Description:

People who run residencies work tirelessly to support the artists they host, and often don't get the chance to take a step back and reflect on the future of their organizations, the nature of their work, or even simply catch up with colleagues. The cost of international travel and the difficulty in obtaining visas adds to the challenge of creating meaningful and lasting international exchange between mainland China and the rest of the world.

Residency Knowledge Exchange was started to address this situation. In our first iteration in 2016, with the support of Transnational Dialogues, we helped a young arts administrator from China, Hu Xinru 胡欣茹, Red Gate Residency's coordinator, travel abroad for the first time to meet with cultural practitioners in the UK.

Last year, Coral Lu of Dong Dong & Lulu (Nanjing & Hohot, China), Syar Alia of Rimbun Dahan (Malaysia), Anna Lovecchio of NTU Centre for Contemporary Art (Singapore), Pisithpong Siraphisut of ComPeung (Thailand), Emma Lee of Kiwisual (Guangzhou, China), and Wong Ker Sin of East Coast (Malaysia) participated in our 东 x 东南亚 East x South East Asia Residency Knowledge Exchange between China and South East Asia.

This year we are calling for all residency directors, coordinators, and administrators working in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, Mongolia, Japan and South Korea to apply for one to three week residencies at Untitled Space in Jinze, Shanghai this June to exchange best practices, devise innovative solutions to common challenges, and share strategies for increasing cultural exchange within the region. Selected residency staff will be provided with accommodations at Untitled Space.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis until May 1st.
