Welcome to China Residencies' quarterly list of deadlines for residencies, call for papers, job opportunities & lots of different things you can apply for that have a connection to China and the greater Chinese diaspora, worldwide. In this ongoing pandemic, many opportunities are now happening online or remotely, and many others are contingent on international and local travel restrictions, as well as quarantine safety measures. Keep in mind that things might be different between now and the deadline, and between now and when the opportunity takes place!

That being said, good luck, take care & share these with anyone who might be interested:
