The CEAC artists-in-residence program gives artists, designers, architects, curators, writers, composers a place where they can develop ideas, experiment and produce new work. The CEAC advises artists on how to produce their work outside their studio and shares with them a large network of local artists, companies and work sites to enable them to implement their projects in the best possible way.
The CEAC stimulates a cultural and intellectual exchange between residents, local artists and students of Xiamen University. Residents can be invited to give lectures or presentations about their work and guest seminars and workshops for students.
At the conclusion of their residence, artists are invited to present their research project and new work at the Art Center. The CEAC can also help mediate presentation spots in other cities in China and, for those who like to travel, CEAC offers travel advice and assistance.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
