Artist-in-Residence Exchange (ARIX) Programme
The British Council-Singapore International Foundation Artist-in-Residence Exchange programme (BC-SIF AiRx) was a collaboration between the British Council and the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) to bridge communities between the two countries through the exchange of ideas and perspectives and collaborations in the arts and thought leadership.
It was a residential and cultural immersion programme by BC and SIF that provided Singaporean and British artists with the opportunity to gain new insights, understanding and inspiration through interacting and exchanging perspectives with foreign communities, while assuming the role of ambassadors to promote awareness and to bridge communities. The programme culminated with BC-SIF AiRx participants collaborating on work(s) that reflect insights gained and their experiences on the residency programme.
BC-SIF AiRx was organised pursuant to the BC-SIF Memorandum of Understanding in 2011 to bridge Singaporean and UK communities through the exchange of ideas and perspectives, and collaborations in the arts and thought leadership. For each exchange, two artists engaged in a dialogue and created new collaborative works that reflect their experiences in their respective host country.
