Home of International Poets (residence program)

Shanguan Art Scene is an independent residence program 2 hours north of Beijing. It started in 2007 and has provide free space to 50 artists each year. This year DJS collaborated with Shangyuan and started a very small writing residence program there. Annette Robichaud and Li Shumin were the first two poets selected. Annette arrived in Beijing on April 10, and found there was no water in her dorm at Shangyuan. But things are getting better each day. The poets are fully integrated into the program with artists and musicians, participating in poetry readings, parties, and out-goings. The two poets have also translated each other’s poetry into Chinese and English.  On May 4th, Poetry East West magazine made an extended “online anthology” which included their translations along with the work by 30 other poets in China. We will interview Annette Robichaud upon completion of her residence to find out how the program works out there and if the “remote control” is effective or not…
