TA abroad

In Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Trans Artists, in collaboration with Cemeti Art House , organized a workshop for young artists on artists in residence. During this day we gave insights how the artists (and their art, writings or curatorial practices) can benefit the most from this experience and presented several residency models as an alternative ways for artists to gain new insight into the idea of making art. Next to that we set up a discussion on the practical steps on how to find the right match between the young artists and the residency host.
