Artist's Residency in Yunnan, China


Children and their drawings.
First of all, I would like to thank ACAF for granting me the Arts Can Do Artist's Residency in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. In 2011, I went to Xishuangbanna, visiting Mengla and Yiwu. When I was in Yiwu, I was invited by a beautiful mother to visit her tea factory and to have lunch. I was really touched by the hospitality. 
    Since then, it had always been my desire to go back there in a way which I could serve the community. I was really glad to find ACAF's Arts Can Do program. Through this program, I have been teaching art to children at Longlin school, which is located in the countryside surrounded by hills on all sides and close to a Dai ethnic village. My residency started on 20 Sept. I would like to stay for three months to work on two art projects, which will involve the participation of the children.
