Program Description

What feeds you? 是什么喂养了你? For the fifth edition of the Crystal Ruth Bell Residency, we are inviting people to apply for a fully-funded residency at Red Gate in Beijing for the months of November and December 2018. We are calling for people of all types of creative practices, of all passports, ages, gender-identities, abilities, and interests to send us proposals for projects to pursue in Beijing this winter around the verb “nourish" - in any way the word makes sense to you. Whether you are a farmer, a cook, an artist, a food scientist, a culinary critic or historian, a guerrilla gardener, ethnographer, nomadic food truck entrepreneur, a writer, a poet, dancer, filmmaker, photographer, journalist, urban planner, nutritionist, or any other kind of creative person whose work involves food in some way, we welcome your proposals for a fully-funded two month residency at Red Gate Residency this winter.
