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.

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）
