Applications are CLOSED for Rimbun Dahan’s Southeast Asian Arts Residency for 2018. We are currently reviewing the applications and will endeavor to be in touch with all applicants by mid-October.

One of our leading commitments is investing in emerging/developing artistic talents in the region and furthering artistic exchange with our neighbours. We invite visual artists (of all disciplines), writers, arts managers, and researchers/curators from and based in Southeast Asian countries to submit applications for residencies in 2018. Residencies can be minimum 1 month and maximum 3 months*. We have a set budget set aside for these residencies so spots will be limited.

All applications must be received by Friday, 15 September 2017.

*ASEAN nationals are given 30 days stay in Malaysia per visit – 30 days does not always equal one month, so be mindful of days and dates when booking flights. In our experience, Malaysian immigration prefers that ASEAN nationals have at least a week between their most recent departure date from Malaysia and their next re-entry date.

You can apply for an additional 30 day extension to your visa while in Malaysia before your initial visa ends by visiting an immigration office. Approval of extension is not always guaranteed. Processing can take anywhere from 2 days to a week, and it may require you to change the date of your original return ticket. So if you are planning to extend your stay, do be ready and make arrangements during your residency to go to the immigration office and go through the necessary processes OR to book multiple flights to renew your visa every 30 days during your residency.
