Produced by Xiamen Lucitopia Culture co. LTD and co-curated by C-Platform and Mexdia Lab, the Lucitopia Residency Program has special cooperation with Green Art Lab Alliance (EU). Distinct from other art residencies, the Lucitopia Residency Program is a comprehensive residency program that welcomes interdisciplinary and cross-media practitioners from different backgrounds to explore the possibilities of a specific space or area.


Eligible Applicants

Lucitopia Residency Program is a comprehensive residency program that welcomes interdisciplinary and cross-media practitioners from different backgrounds to explore the possibilities of a specific space or area. You may be an artist or a curator whose focus could be on, for instance, painting, video, sound, performance, installation or cross-media; or you may be a designer focusing on architecture, Objects, fashion or food; or you may be a researcher focusing on nature, biology, agriculture, technology or on literature and the humanities. Since the working environment of this residency program occurs predominantly in rural areas and in nature, the recommended age for the applicant is between 25 and 55.

鹿栖驻地计划与通常意义上的艺术驻地有所不同,它是一个由跨学科、跨专业、跨媒介等不同背景的实践者共同参与,探讨特定空间场域可能性的综合性驻地计划。你可以是从事绘画、影像、声音、行为、装置、跨媒体的艺术家、策展人;或是来自建筑、物件、时尚、食物等专业方向的设计师,或是专注自然、生物、农业、科技、人文等领域的研究人员。(由于本驻地计划多在乡野自然环境中工作,建议申请者年龄为25 - 55岁)
