We welcome experimental, digital, and/or research-based practices, and people who feel an alignment with and interest in all three of the host organizations’ networks and programming. We’re especially interested in ideas that explore diasporic cultures and spaces, flows of people, goods and capital, grassroots movements, alternative community and kin-making, digital cultures, media arts, philosophies of technology and place-making—and any intersections of these.
Everyone is encouraged to apply, especially if you have never applied to anything in the past. We are particularly interested in applications that resist and interrogate stereotypical or reactionary impulses, instead turning our gaze towards the difficult but necessary conversations, care, and solidarities we might build across borders.
Digital Diasporas will host:
• one person or collective who self-identifies as Chinese diaspora in or from Australia (citizen or permanent resident)
• one person or collective who self-identifies as Chinese diaspora in or from Canada (citizen or permanent resident)
• one person or collective who self-identifies as Chinese, regardless of what passport they hold or where they reside
The remote, online residency will be facilitated by three host organizations between mid-October to mid-December 2021. Each resident or collective will primarily work with one host organization in Canada, Australia, or China and all residents as a cohort will be in dialogue with one another through convenings. Each resident or collective will be awarded an unrestricted stipend of AUD $10,000 for their participation. Each host organisation will design a program of remote/online mentoring, networking, research and development for the resident they host. The host organisations are:
• 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art (Sydney, Australia)
• Chronus Art Center (Shanghai, China)
• Gendai (Toronto, Canada)
While all disciplines of creative practice are eligible, this opportunity is most suitable for artists/collectives/curators who are comfortable working online. Applicants should be comfortable communicating in English. Chronus Arts Center can also work with applicants in Mandarin Chinese.
