Listhús Artist Residency Program

Listhús Artist Residency Program is a newly development organised by Listhús. The key objectives of the Program are to provide an opportunity for international exchange, where creative people in all media including writers, curators and art educators are given the opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and possibly cooperate; and to support the development of new work for exhibition at Listhús and elsewhere. We will try the best to assist you to build your own program and meet your objectives smoothly during your stay.
