I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to tell you that I have been awarded an Asialink Arts Residency in Tokyo!
This means that I have been given a grant to go and work on my art for two whole months (later this year) at the Youkobo Artspace in Tokyo.
Last week I was in Melbourne meeting with the staff from Asialink and many of the others artists, including writers, visual artists and curators who will also be travelling and working across Asia in 2016. It was great to meet the other artists and find out what they will be doing and also to hear from previous grant recipients about their experiences. It’s very exciting and at the same time just a bit daunting to be part of this program.

In addition to Asialink, the arts residency program is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and also in my case by Arts ACT.
