Brief description of residency program

PCCA provide international artists with Chinese cultural knowledge and content in the field, finalizing the international art exchange, through arranging local cultural experiences and the spread of cultural knowledge, involve local culture in internationalized artistic creation.

We want to upgrade cultural and artistic industries in Jinxi and even Suzhou, especially the developmental direction of non-profit organizations, also serve local people to provide more energy for local cultural undertakings through the project’s multi-faceted display forms; intervene in the local people´s life and interact with them to create both contemporary and traditional integration in the cultural atmosphere.

During the residency, the artist needs to carry out a corresponding cultural investigation, art lecture, sharing session or exhibition, or activities for PCCA to help to show the results of that creative stage.
