Sunny International Artists Residencies  https://www.sunnyartcentre.co.uk/artprize/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw_5rtBRDxARIsAJfxvYCsXHBk9Qwf8WM6gxU2DL1McrGRTIortgc1cXhp1xZRyuu6Mz9X4YkaAq3xEALw_wcB

The Sunny Art Prize in collaboration with leading Chinese national and international cultural institutions launched a series of new artist residency programs. For each edition of the Sunny Art Prize, we will provide the winning artists with the opportunity to be part of a residency in culturally dynamic and significant places in China. The idea of international cultural exchange, as provided by this open call for artists, was envisioned to complement the existing program of international exhibitions from London to China. While the artworks shortlisted for the Art Prize travel to new exhibiting locations and engage with new audiences, we believe artists should also travel and exchange knowledge about their practice with new communities around the world. Through direct interaction with Eastern culture, the artist residency aims to provide a profound, positive change to your practice as an artist as well as to you as a person.
