Artist residencies offer the opportunity for exchange, focussed work and relationship building with international peers in an informal manner that is unique. This workshop provides information on different residency models. How do you figure out if a particular residency is right for you? What questions should you ask a residency centre? How should you structure your time while you are there? Grace Han will offer tips on applying for residencies and securing arts council funding to help make them happen.

Grace Han is a ceramic artist originally trained in Seoul, South Korea. She received a BFA from Dankook University, where she specialized in traditional Korean Ceramic techniques and skills, and an MFA from the University of Manitoba. She has participated in residency programs both short-term and long-term, sometimes located in natural settings and sometimes in big cities. She recently completed two concurrent exhibitions at Medalta in Alberta, as the conclusion to a long-term residency there.
