In-situ is Latin for “in place”. We are a multidisciplinary artist residency for creatives who want to explore Hong Kong and its culture “in place”. We are less focused on final outcomes, and instead, encourage rigorous experimentation and exploration to develop new ways of thinking or making. We also don’t ask for detailed proposals or project schedules during the application process because we believe projects and ideas should be informed by spending time here. This is why longer residency periods of two to three months are encouraged. As an influential art hub in the Asia Pacific region, Hong Kong hosts the Art Basel art fair, many prominent art galleries, and the M+ Museum. Residents will have access to a private studio within a supportive creative community and a robust communal woodshop. We regularly organize artist talks, open studios, introductions to local artists and art professionals, and keep residents updated with the latest gallery openings and cultural events.
LOCATION In-situ is strategically located in To Kwa Wan, Kowloon. To Kwa Wan is a lively residential neighbourhood with a few industrial buildings lining the waterfront. This offers residents ample studio space in which to work while being immediately surrounded by traditional aspects of daily life. STUDIO Within a shared space with other local creatives, In-situ residents will have 24/7 access to the studio, common areas, pantry, and a well-equipped woodshop. The woodshop has power tools such as a band saw, chop saw, planer, various hand tools, drills, and a CNC machine. RESIDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR -Cost of production, daily living, flights, and accommodation. PROGRAM FEE In-situ operates as an independent artist-run space. The program fee meets the minimal cost of running a residency program in Hong Kong. Residency length is 1-3 months (full calendar months only).
