Open Call for the 5th Crystal Ruth Bell Residency - Nourish 颐养


For the fifth edition of the Crystal Ruth Bell Residency, we are inviting people to apply for a fully-funded residency at Red Gate in Beijing for the months of November and December 2018. We are calling for people of all types of creative practices, of all passports, ages, gender-identities, abilities, and interests to send us proposals for projects to pursue in Beijing this winter around the verb “nourish" - in any way the word makes sense to you.

Whether you are a farmer, a cook, an artist, a food scientist, a culinary critic or historian, a guerrilla gardener, ethnographer, nomadic food truck entrepreneur, a writer, a poet, dancer, filmmaker, photographer, journalist, urban planner, nutritionist, or any other kind of creative person whose work involves food in some way, we welcome your proposals for a fully-funded two month residency at Red Gate Residency this winter.

The Crystal Ruth Bell Residency covers:

- Housing in either a downtown apartment or loft studio, both equipped with home kitchens

- Round trip flight 

- USD $1,071 stipend {as of 2018, our stipend is pegged to inflation)

- USD $500 for materials & ingredients

- Visa & travel health insurance

- Airport pickup, welcome dinner

- Optional artist talk or workshop & open studio

- Use of Crystal’s sanlunche 

- Project support from the Red Gate and China Residencies teams

Individuals and duos from all nationalities are encouraged to apply, including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao. This is a wide open call, with no restrictions based on age, medium, educational background, or any other criteria. Project proposals will be evaluated based on their feasibility and creativity by a jury composed of Red Gate Residency director Yulia Lobyntseva, China Residencies board members Zara Arshad, Jay Brown, Christina Chung, Miles Greenberg; Head of Research & Development Josue Chavez, summer intern Angel Tillery, and co-founder & director Kira Simon-Kennedy.

DEADLINE: Apply online before July 17th 2018

Finalists will be notified by August 8th and the selected resident will be announced on September 1st.
