Asialink Arts Residencies 2015


Open call to arts professionals in Australia to apply for the 2015 Asialink Arts Residencies program. The aim of Asialink’s Arts Residency Program is to create meaningful and enduring relationships between individuals and organisations in Australia and Asia.

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 emphasized 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 in Australia.

Applications are welcome from arts professionals who are:

  • Australian citizens or those who have Permanent Residency status.

  • A proven record of professional artistic activity over at least three years.

See website for other eligibility criteria and guidelines. Residencies cannot commence before 1 March 2015, and must be completed by 31 December 2015.

There are various different flexible models for residency applications:

Asialink Host Partners are arts organisations across Asia that partner with the Residency Program. In this section we present a profile of each of our host partners, including details of residency offerings and website links.

Since 2010 Asialink has partnered host organisations around Australia with hosts in Singapore, Korea and Taiwan.  Applicants from those Asian countries may not apply directly but will be proposed by the host organisation.

Asialink's 'Arts Residency Laboratory' is a platform for testing new models of artistic and cultural exchange. The Laboratory, launched in 2012, has trialled 7 exciting models to date that have resulted in engaged and sustained residency experiences. Each year Asialink works to offer new residency models.

Applicants can apply for Self-Initiated Residencies by proposing a host and/or country that is not listed as an Asialink Host Partner. It is up to the applicant to research and make contact with their proposed host organisation and discuss their residency proposal.

DEADLINE for applications: September 30 2014
