Paid by host 

Each resident is offered a grant between $6,000-$12,000 for 6-12 week residencies respectively. Asialink will induct arts residents to the program and provide them with general travel information and country-specific contacts and information. Asialink Arts will be in communication throughout the residency experience. Ultimately, it is then up to the individual to make as much of the experience as possible and to plan and manage their own program.
