FACT, Wood Street, Liverpool, L1
Eight UK visual arts institutions will partner with eight South Korean institutions to develop and deliver an Artists’ Residency Programme for emerging artists based in the United Kingdom and South Korea. FACT and NJPAC – two leading, international media arts centres- have partnered to host two artists, one from each of their respective countries, within the context of this residency exchange programme. The selected artists will have the chance to conduct research and production, as well as become embedded in the everyday of the organisations, including participation in various programmes such as open studios, artist talks, screenings and performances. This two month residency period will develop the artist’s’ practice, as well as expanding and deepening their international contacts, through the diverse networks of host organisations included in this programme. FACT and NJPAC have developed a partnership within this context. FACT is supported using public funding by Arts Council England, and Liverpool City Council. NJPAC is supported by Gyeonggi Cultural Foundation and Arts Council Korea.
