Jeju International Residency 2019-20
The Jeju International Residency supports Tasmanian visual artists to undertake a cultural exchange residency in Jeju Province in South Korea.
Arts Tasmania uses peer assessors, drawn from the Cultural and Creative Industries Expert Register, to recommend activities for support.
The peers recommended two applications under the 2019-20 round of Jeju International Residency:
- Veronica Kent
- Nadege Philippe-Janon
The artists received funding of $10 975 towards a six week residency in the Jeju Province.
