The Global Young Creatives Residency (GYCR) is a process and an event that relates culture to the sustainable development of Jeju. It is hosted and organized by the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province and the Jeju Foundation for Arts and Culture, and supported by the Committee on Culture of UCLG and the JDC (Jeju Free International City Development Center).
The 4th edition of the GYCR will take place from 5 to 10 August 2022 in Jeju Island. Entitled “Islands in Flow 2”, the Residency is inviting 24 young artists from Jeju and abroad to develop creative proposals with the aim to face the urgent climate crisis, while being consulted by expert mentors. An in-person workshop (9-10 July) and a hybrid exhibition (19 August - 2 September) will be held as well.
This experience is based on the commitments of the practical toolkit Culture 21 Actions on culture in sustainable cities, adopted by UCLG in 2015, especially the one related to “Culture and the Environment”, and the latest report coordinated by the Committee on Culture: The role of culture in climate resilient development.
The call for participants (in English) is open and the deadline for submissions is 20 June, 6pm (KST).
In 2021, the Forum takes a new shape! Retitled "Global Young Creatives Residencies", the Forum will gather this summer for a new edition!
