China Residencies’ non-for-profit mission is to:
- Map, research, and create a free online directory of opportunities
in mainland China & Hong Kong for creative people from all over the world.
- Fund excellent creative people and projects through residencies and nurture
the next generation of organizers and administrators through fiscal sponsorship.
- Support and advise existing and envisioned residency programs
across the region to foster sustainable creative exchange.
We believe diplomacy shouldn’t just be left up to politicians. Artists are cultural and social changemakers, and, in a world where people sometimes forget to listen to and learn from one another, we are passionate about creating opportunities for artists to bring a broader cultural understanding into their work and communities.
China Residencies supports res artis’s mission to map residency programs throughout the world by building relationships with artists and administrator at residency programs throughout China and the greater Chinese diaspora.
Artist residency programs in mainland China have a unique set of challenges and opportunities. We recommend artists research the 50+ programs that exist to find a program with the funding structure, staff support, geographic location, facilitates, and community setting that fits best with their practice: chinaresidencies.org/residencies/
We also create free resources like city guides and advice on navigating VPNs that will be helpful for anyone seeking to learn more about initiating creative projects in the region: chinaresidencies.org/resources/
