China Residencies | a Triennial report
China Residencies was founded in 2013 by Crystal Ruth Bell and Kira Simon-Kennedy, as a network of artist residencies in China, providing information and resources to support artists' exchanges with China. Its Triennial report documents some of the achievements to date.
- Over 34,000 people visited the China Residencies website from 166 countries.
- 522 project proposals were received for the 4 open calls. 7 artists from India, Bulgaria, Taiwan, China & the US were sent on fully-funded Red Gate residencies in Crystal’s honor.
- 5 Australian artists returned to China to explore 2nd & 3rd tier cities like Kunming, Xiamen & Chongqing through our Copyright Agency Cultural Fund supported Two To Three 二到三 program：Ian Bonner, Astra Howard, Jason Hendrik Hansma & Alicia King + Joshua Hoare
We also supported lots of other artists in their residency search and project development, including Avigail Talmor, Fine Fine Small Mountain & ADL; and helped other artists and residencies like Constant Dullaart and 23 Days At Sea in raising funds to develop new projects by backing their Kickstarters.
We contributed to 3 print publications:

and gave 9 talks, panels & presentations
in Brooklyn, Boston, Providence, London, Birmingham, Amsterdam, Barbados, Melbourne & Hong Kong!
