The 2024 Res Artis conference titled ‘Interweave the Spectrum: Beyond Collaboration’, held in Taipei from 6 to 9 September 2024, will be organised by the Taipei|Treasure Hill Artist Village under the Taipei Culture Foundation and co-organised by the Taiwan Art Space Alliance. The conference is supported by the Department of Cultural Affairs, Taipei City Government.

Over 200 Res Artis Members, artists, curators, and art administrators from across the globe will gather in Taipei, a multicultural city in Asia that embraces creativity and openness, to focus on trends and challenges of collaborative practice within the international arts residencies field. Using the spectrum as a symbol, where the continuous flow brings the opposite extremes together, the conversation around collaboration will delve into deeper concepts of cross-disciplinary models, social engagement, capacity building and evaluation.

This conference will pay tribute to Margaret Shiu (1946–2021), the founder of Bamboo Curtain Studio and former board member of Res Artis. Margaret was a global leader in the arts residencies field who dedicated her life’s work to ensuring Taiwan and Asia’s place on the international arts residencies map. Her pioneering work in cross-cultural collaboration will be commemorated.

Yohann Floch, On the Move Director of Operations, will be speaking at the event.
