This summer, we're looking forward to working alongside three brilliant young people to continue our mission of helping artists and the residencies that host them. Sam Gong is coming on board as our summer intern working on translation projects, Fei Liu continues to conduct interviews in her role of contributing researcher, and Willem Molesworth will be joining the team as development associate to help design and implement our first fundraising campaign.
