Asialink Residencies

For more than 25 years Asialink has played a pivotal role in building connections between Australia and Asia for visual artists, performers, writers and arts managers.

Applicants can choose from 54 partner organisations in 13 countries throughout the region.

Asialink provides grants of up to $12,000 for residencies of periods of 6–12 weeks.

Applicants can choose from one of our four different models:

  • A residency with an Asialink host partner
  • A self-initiated residency
  • A reciprocal residency – these are two-way exchanges that are state specific. This year they target NSW, VIC, ACT and WA artists.
  • Residency Laboratory – A platform for testing new models. This year an Intensive and a Multilateral residency are on offer.

Asialink emphasises that residents should engage with their local host community as much as possible by conducting workshops, public programs and skills sharing during their residency period.

But the exact outcome of the residency is up to the artist.

Applications close 5pm AEST Friday 30 September 2016.
