Shanghai Residency Director Appreciation Roller

May 13, 2016 20:00 to May 13, 2016 23:00
The awesome people who start and run residency programs work tirelessly to host artists from all around the world. They welcome these artists to Beijing, introduce them to the city's opportunities and eccentricities, and help them navigate the challenges of realizing new ideas here.


开设和管理艺术驻地项目的人特别厉害。它们一直欢迎从世界各地来的艺术家來到北京, 而且给它们介绍本城市的机会和怪癖,也努力帮助他们解决所有在创造过程中面临的问题。

Running a residency is hard work, and sometime the dedicated people behind the scenes don't get the thanks they deserve. So join us Sunday evening to celebrate these lovely people, buy them a drink, and let them know we know we couldn't do it all without them!
管理驻地驻地项目并不容易,有时人们甚至忘记向他们说感谢。因此请你周日傍晚加入我们,向这些可爱的人表示祝贺,一起喝一杯并告诉他们,他们的工作对我们来说有多么重要。
