Brief description of residency program
Based in China's most emerging cultural city of Chengdu, the Hellotree Artist Residency programme is led by a brand-new concept that is to create a new model of artist residency which blends artists’ studio practices and customised travelling experiences.
During the one-month-in-residence there will be a group of 2-3 artists, each artist will be provided with an independent studio in Chengdu. And during the residency, there will be about half of the time for the artists chose to take a "Grand Tour” - a customised road-trip to remote Tibetan regions that led by the organiser which is not yet widely explored and opened to foreign tourists.
Hellotree Artist Residency programme is aiming not only at building communications between international artist groups and local art scene but also on linking the artist and culture groups that could not be easily exposed to international audiences. By blending artist-in-residence and travelling experience, Hellotree Res is creatively contributing to the variety of the artist residency’s running models in the region, as well as discovering new ways of art creating for artist groups.
