Each year the Asialink Arts Residency Program sends approximately 30 Australian writers, performers, artists and arts managers to undertake residencies in Asia. Since its inception in 1991 the program has sent more than 680 people to host organisations in over 20 countries. The grant of up to $12,000 for three months goes towards travel, living and project expenses, and affords recipients the opportunity for in-depth research, stimulating cultural exchanges, international collaboration and uninterrupted time for creativity.
Applicants to the Asialink Arts Residency Program can choose from a range of Host Partners across the region; propose their own Self-Initiated Residency; take part in a Reciprocal Residency or choose a new model of residency from our Residency Laboratory.
