Gyeonggi Creation Center is pleased to announce a call for 29 resident artists to participate in this year\’s Creation residency. The residency will host 17 Korean artists for a period of either one or two years, and 12 international artists for a period of up to three months. The application period begins in October and continues through November. The screening of applications will begin in December and continue through January. Once selected, artists are expected to arrive at the GCC in March.
The Gyeonggi Creation Center first opened to the public in October 2009. Its primary mission has been to establish itself as an international artist residency that supports creative work, research, and the free exchange of ideas between artists of all nationalities while fostering relationships with local surrounding communities.
GCC is managed by Gyeonggi Cultural Foundation, a part of the Gyeonggi Provincial Government. GCC aims to inspire participants through creative activities, education programs, interdisciplinary research, and direct interactions with local residents and other community projects. An emphasis will be placed on increasing access to, and awareness of, the cultural resources of Gyeonggi Province for all residents.
It is our intention that a focus on interaction with local communities will set the stage for a new type of future-oriented cultural paradigm; GCC endeavors to lead the cultural development of Gyeonggi Province, and in doing so, will increase awareness and understanding of participants and communities in other international artistic exchanges.
