Red Gate Residency

OPEN CALL: Yew Chung International School artist-in-residence program in Beijing, China (April & May 2017). 


DEADLINE: February 17, 2017.

In collaboration with Yew Chung International School, we invite proposals from visual artists interested in working with high school students in Beijing for the months of April and May 2017. This funded residency includes return flights, accommodation, material costs, as well as a per diem towards day-to-day costs.

The artist-in-residence will be provided with a space on the school campus to use as a studio space. Project proposals that incorporate student participation are highly encouraged. The artist-in-residence will also be expected to provide mentorship and desk critiques to IB diploma senior art students, give artist talks, workshops, and present a final exhibition/display. Artists with a keen interest in and past experience working with students are highly preferred.

Yew Chung International School artist-in-residence program covers:

  • Return flights (up to 1,500 USD)

  • Accommodation in Red Gate Residency downtown apartment

  • $850 USD per month stipend towards daily living costs

  • $750 USD minimum budget per month for materials costs. To YCIS discretion if artistic medium should require more.

  • Visa invitation letter and visa fees covered

  • Red Gate Residency program support (airport pick-up, Welcome Dinner, neighbourhood orientation, maps and directions, gallery tours, invitations to art openings and all Red Gate Gallery events).

Individuals from all nationalities are encouraged to apply with no restrictions based on age or medium. Project proposals will be evaluated based on their feasibility, creativity, and the artist's past experience working with students by a jury composed of Red Gate Residency and Yew Chung International School staff. The selected artist will also need to pass a background check since they will be working with high school students.
