Asialink’s Arts Residency Program aims to create meaningful and enduring relationships between individuals and organisations in Australia and Asia. Open call to eligible Australian citizens/PR to apply for a range of flexible 6-12 week residencies across Asia in 2016.
Asialink works in partnership with arts residency centres in the region to realise this goal. Asialink Arts Residencies are professional development opportunities, aimed at being mutually beneficial to both host and resident. This two-way knowledge and skills transfer is emphasised by way of our Reciprocal Residency and Residency Laboratory programs. Outcomes of the program occur immediately and on an ongoing and long-term basis. Since 1991, the Asialink’s Arts Residency Program has created a new generation of Asia-Capable arts professionals.
Applications are welcome from arts professionals who meet the following criteria (see website for full details):
- Australian citizens or those who have Permanent Residency status.
- A proven record of professional artistic activity over at least three years.
- Residencies are not for academic study or research, paid study leave.
Applicants to Asialink’s Arts Residency Program for 2016 can select from one of the following models of residency:
- Residency with an Asialink Host Partner
- Reciprocal Residency
- Residency Laboratory
- Self-Initiated Residency
Each resident is offered a grant between AUD $6,000-$12,000 for 6-12 week residencies respectively. Asialink will induct arts residents to the program and provide them with general travel information and country-specific contacts and information. We will be in communication throughout the residency experience. Ultimately, it is then up to the individual to make as much of the experience as possible and to plan and manage their own program.
Residencies cannot commence before 1 March 2016, and must be completed by 31 December 2016.
Deadline: 29 September 2015
