ABSTRACT TITLE: WAY TO UNDERSTAND ASIA VIA FACE TO FACE FROM NORTH TO SOUTH VISITING PROGRAMS
We will present an introduction to the different artists-in-residency models existing in Asia, which is very dynamic in the creative art scene now. Many artist clusters are initiating new models of residencies. We will highlight practical tips for travel to the region. There is much difference between north and south Asia, alternative bottom-up artist networks, to government provided programs. These come with different support systems, requirements, plus expectations of the visiting artists in a diverse cultural setting of Asia today.
