Our Creative Economy team are seeking proposals for the evaluation of Hello Shenzhen - an exciting bilateral residency exchange programme connecting makers in the UK and China. Deadline 8 January 2017.
Hello Shenzhen aims to build stronger links between UK and Chinese making practices, supporting meaningful collaboration and deepening learning between the two countries.
Through in-depth residencies makers in the UK and China will provide collaborative solutions and research, responding to shared issues and interests. Significantly, residency briefs will be generated by maker communities and those who support them, covering a variety of themes including sustainability, education, community development and enterprise. In the pilot year of the programme (2016/2017) the residencies will take place in Shenzhen and the UK for three weeks in March 2017.
Through issuing follow on grants to participants that have been through the exchange programme we are enabling ideas/products developed to come to life.
Creative Economy are seeking responses to tender for the evaluation of the pilot year of Hello Shenzhen from February 2017-December 2017.
