Arts Tasmania Jeju International Residency
This program supports Tasmanian artists to undertake a cultural exchange residency in Jeju Province in South Korea.
The residency provides:
- a set artist fee ($12 000 for twelve weeks or $6 000 for six weeks)
- 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, presentations and a public exhibition. There will also be opportunities for cultural excursions and field trips.
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.
Residencies will be available in 2018 and 2019.
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.
