Japan Foundation, Bangkok / Asia-Europe Foundation > Virtual Workings E-residency for Arts Curators
The Japan Foundation, Bangkok (JFBKK) and the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) through its arts website culture360.ASEF.org are pleased to launch the open call for Virtual Workings, an e-residency for emerging arts curators from the ASEAN region and Japan. Organised as a response to the impact of the global pandemic, this e-residency will be held online for a period of 6 weeks and will offer an opportunity for capacity building, peer learning and collaboration with the support of an expert in the field who will serve as a mentor to each pair. The residency has three themes: Resilience; First Voice – Curating Inclusion and Diversity; Interweave Asian textile(s) with contemporary urgencies.
Selected curators will work in pairs. Each pair will be assigned a mentor and will collaborate online over a period of 6 weeks (16 November – 22 December 2020). Applicants are encouraged to apply in pairs. For individual applicants, the pairing will be done by the organisers.
Each pair will work on a final output that could take the form of an online presentation, photo documentary, podcast, video documentary, mock project presentation online, amongst others. The final output of the residency will be published on culture360.ASEF.org and partners’ social media channels.
At the end of residency, each pair will take part in a podcast or video interview about the collaborative process as part of a wider sharing of their residency experience. Each participant will receive a fee of USD 500 for their participation in the residency to be used for the implementation of their project idea (e.g. research fee, purchase of materials or any other necessary service fee).
Deadline: 30 October 2020
