We believe diplomacy shouldn’t just be left up to politicians. Artists are cultural and social changemakers and we are passionate about creating opportunities for artists to bring a broader cultural understanding into their work and communities.
Over 30 artist residency programs that give artists time and space to create work in China, but thousands of creatives don't have a way to connect with these opportunities.
The not for profit mission of China Residencies is to:
- Create a comprehensive directory and an online platform for visiting artists and hosting organizations.
- Foster successful creative exchanges by strengthening the network of programs.
- Research organizational best practices, archival systems, and mapping exchange.
