• Kriss Wong and the Art Yurt Project

    Location: Yunnan, China

    Date: 20/09/15 - 20/12/15

    Kriss Wong is our first Yunnan residency artist volunteering at new Yunnan Arts Can Do centre. Kriss is a Maylasia based self-taught visual artist. Her artistic expressions are related to contemporary social, cultural and environmental issues through videography, photography, drawings and a variety of mediums.

    She has worked for non-governmental organizations, written freelance for travel magazines, taught arts to children, worked as visual artist at music festivals. Traveling plays an important part in her artistic expressions because she is very much inspired by new experiences and new encounters through cross- cultural exchanges.

    Kriss has been teaching arts to children at Longlin Primary School, which is located in the beautiful countryside surrounded by hills on all sides and close to a Dai ethnic village. Her residency started on 20 September 2015, she would like to stay for three months to work on two art projects, which will involve the participation of the children.
