For the seventh edition of the Crystal Ruth Bell Residency, China Residencies is inviting people who work with all kinds of media to apply for a fully-funded, 6-month remote residency in 2021. They welcome proposals of media arts and mediated projects for documentaries, videos, films, journalism, AR/VR/mixed reality, games, websites, interactive installations and projects connected to mainland China, Hong Kong, Chinatowns, and the greater Chinese diaspora worldwide in some way.

They are calling for individuals and collectives working in all types of creative practices, of all passports, ages, gender-identities, backgrounds, abilities, and interests to send proposals. Individuals and duos from all nationalities are encouraged to apply, including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao. This is a wide open call, with no restrictions based on age, medium, educational background, or any other criteria.

Each selected project(s) will receive a total USD $10,000. The residency dates will be flexible and take place between March 2021 and December 2021, with many opportunities for project feedback and visits with guests, in-depth workshops on budgeting & fundraising, mentorship and introductions, and help visioning paths to completion and new ways to share work.
