Want find out how you can go on an artist residency in China?
Come join us Tuesday at Residency Unlimited to hear co-founders Crystal Ruth Bell and Kira Simon-Kennedy present an overview of China Residencies and give useful tips on how to navigate in China as a visiting artist.
We'll touch on everything from funding opportunities and visa application guidelines, as well as opportunities for exhibitions and collaborations with local artists and institutions. We'll also team up with past Red Gate artists in residence Sam Jablon & Margeaux Walter, as well as our fantastic interns Hong Zhang & Sally Yi Cao to answer all your questions.
Free drinks, delicious dumplings & other Chinese snacks generously donated by Sichuan Legend!
