2013 September Res Artis Newsletter

ResSupport Fellowships for professional development

ResSupport Fellowship
is the Res Artis member mentorship program that connects residencies and provides first-hand insights into the management and sustainability of an artist residency. As part of the program, a staff member or employee of one of our members is invited to visit and spend time with its partnered residency within our network. This program is an opportunity for professional development that gives participants the chance to learn how established spaces solve issues and adapt to changes, in a different cultural context. If you are running a residency program and looking to skill up, consider becoming a member and applying for a ResSupport Fellowship! Application deadline: October 15th, 2013.


Res Artis launched Res Connect, an initiative to generate a more inclusive network

Res Artis wants to be all inclusive; therefore, we started the Res Connect initiative, where Res Artis members act as donors who pay the membership fee for an emerging residency program that does not have sufficient financial means to join our network.

Do you know a residency program in your region that would benefit from joining our network?

Invite them to apply to Res Connect here!

Setouchi Triennale (Japan)– by Eliza Roberts (Art residencies manager at Asialink and Board Member of Res Artis)

Along with six Asian arts residency centres, Asialink Arts, Australia was invited to participate in the Fukutake House Asia Art Platform, Setouchi Triennale, Japan.

In an abandoned elementary school on the island of Shodoshima, each country used art and food to address how they are confronting the homogenising wave of globalisation, while drawing comparisons to the local situation. This innovative platform involved a residency for the Asian arts residency centres with their selected artists; an exhibition; chef workshop; and symposium. Read more about this interesting note from the field.

90 new exciting residency programs joined us in 2013!

Res Artis members are truly diverse – from large arts organizations to grass roots ones; from urban centres to rural outposts; from short-term residencies to one year experiences. Despite their apparent differences, our members share the common goal of sustaining, promoting and generating a footprint in their local communities while leveraging international relationships within our network. We want you to meet some of the 90 new residency programs that joined our community this year. These highlight some of the many interesting and innovative ways our members are strengthening their communities through the arts while creating a more inclusive Res Artis community.
