Arts Tasmania Jeju International Residency

This program supports Tasmanian artists to undertake a cultural exchange residency in Jeju Province in South Korea.

The residency includes:

  • a set artist fee of $6 000 for six weeks
  • a return airfare from Hobart to Jeju, Korea
  • a per diem for living expenses
  • a contribution towards materials and presentation costs.

During the residency the selected artists will engage with local Korean artists and have the opportunity to offer artist talks, workshop presentations, cultural excursions and field trips.

It is anticipated that the Tasmanian artists visiting Jeju will be included in a group exhibition with other Artspace artists

Upon their return, artists will be expected to work with Arts Tasmania to share their residency experiences and promote the program.

This program aims to build cultural understanding through direct people-to-people links and impact on artists’ careers through exposure and time in new contexts, cultures and environments. As part of this reciprocal exchange Korean artists will undertake a residency in Tasmania.

This program is a partnership between Arts Tasmania and Jeju Foundation for Arts and Culture (JAFC). Established in 2001, JFAC is a non-profit foundation promoting Jeju Islands’ culture and art.

The Arts Tasmania Jeju International Residency is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Korea Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
