International Art Residency in Taiwan, East Asia. Connect with local indigenous arts and crafts.


Based on the Artist's needs and vision, we will connect them with local studios, resources, and materials. During your stay you will also experience the local lifestyle, environment, and culture. Artists who use natural materials are especially welcomed to residence with us. 


Residency periods can be between 2 to 6 weeks long. For every 3 weeks in residency artists are expected to join an event involved with the local environment or Austronesian culture. Art residencies are not limited to only those who have graduated in the fine arts, but everyone must include their reason to stay, creation plan, and artist resume/CV in the application.


The residency is also open to artists who have not had any exhibitions. But these artists will need to have a focus on Austronesian culture or issues during their stay with the Dawn Residence Program.
