culture360 Media Partner | Res Artis Conference: Defining the Next Decade
ASEF culture360 is delighted to be the media partner for Res Artis' first ever fully digital conference: Defining the Next Decade. The event is hosted by SAC Gallery, Bangkok, and supported by ASEF culture360, ASEAN Foundation and Goethe-Institut Thailand.
The conference will examine the tremendous impact of COVID-19 and the future of the international arts residencies field. They will present the results of Res Artis survey data and examine new models of arts residencies that have evolved in response to the pandemic. This includes the rise in local exchange, virtual residencies, and digital residency activity that has occurred while physical exchange is paused.
Taking place across diverse time zones spread over two weeks this September, the virtual nature of this conference will reflect new digital residency activity emerging in the field and will offer greater accessibility for attendees and contributors alike.
There will be workshops and presentations from members of the art residency field throughout the world, with a particular focus on those based in South East Asia and Thailand. The conference will include opportunities for facilitated small group interactions, artistic offerings, as well as gallery and residency tours. This promises to be a digital event unlike any other; through programming and format, Res Artis addresses the importance of meaningful “hosting” in the virtual realm.
