The Asialink program fosters connections between Australia and Asia, with 54 partner organisations in 13 countries throughout the region.

Residencies are open to visual artists, performers, writers and arts industry professionals, with four different residency models. Applicants can explore residencies with host organisations, or undertake self-initiated residencies, reciprocal residencies and participate in residency laboratories, all funded under the Asialink program.

This year Asialink welcomes new host organisations including the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HK); Incheon Art Platform (Korea), and The Beijing Centre for Chinese Studies (China).

 There are also residencies offered in Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Victorian arts professionals also have the opportunity to participate in the Tokyo Wonder Site and RMIT iAIR Creative Industry exchange in 2017, a reciprocal residency  supporting projects and arts practices that intersect with architecture, gaming and design.

Applications for the 2017 Asialink Arts Residencies program close at 5pm on 30 September 2016.
