Mission
Produced by XIAMEN LUCITOPIA CULTURE CO., LTD and co-curated by C-PLATFORM and MEXDIA Lab, the Lucitopia Residency Program has special cooperation with GREEN ART LAB ALLIANCE (EU) and China Residencies. Distinct from other art residencies, the Lucitopia Residency Program is a comprehensive residency program that welcomes interdisciplinary and cross-media practitioners from different backgrounds to explore the possibilities of a specific space or area.


Overview Lucitopia Residency Program is a comprehensive residency program that welcomes interdisciplinary and cross-media practitioners from different backgrounds to explore the possibilities of a specific space or area. You may be an artist or a curator whose focus could be on, for instance, painting, video, sound, performance, installation or cross-media; or you may be a designer focusing on architecture, Objects, fashion or food; or you may be a researcher focusing on nature, biology, agriculture, technology or on literature and the humanities.
