Kunshan Digital Humanities Archive Pilot Project

The pilot project has three elements:

  • Recruit students to create original artworks in any medium in and and around Kunshan in Fall 2019
  • Develop a database index for an archive of artworks and other media related to Kunshan
  • Curate an exhibition of student artworks to be held in Spring 2020

To foster talent and creativity in the arts, the project will also bring artists to campus to give workshops to students, and provide funding for students to create artworks and engage with local artists and galleries in and around Kunshan.

At present we are recruiting students to create artworks in and around Kunshan, to be completed by January 2020.
