Artist in Residence

The Artist in Residence programme invites high-calibre artists with an international perspective to campus for a period of 5-10 days or 1-2 months to create and share their art. The programme offers students the opportunity to meet masters and experience the beauty of art masterpieces up close and ‘in person’.


The Artist in Residence programme usually consists of an art show, a workshop or a creative salon conversation or a combination of these in order to present a panoramic view of the artist's work.

The programme is designed to inspire students and staff by presenting the artist's work along with the sharing of their motivations and creative processes.

The UNNC Spring Symphony Concert is an annual music concert presented by the UNNC Symphony Orchestra, which has been successfully held for many years. As one of the highlights of the UNNC Art Troupe’s activities, the members of the symphony orchestra bring their best works and invite the audience for a spring date.

The concert features a variety of performance forms, including orchestral music, vocal music, and instrumental music. The wind music is melodious, the string music is lively, and the music presents a youthful chapter of poetry, allowing friends to enjoy together.

The Spring Symphony Concert is not only a music extravaganza, but also an opportunity to showcase the art of the UNNC. Since 2023, the Spring Symphony Concert has stepped out of the campus and brought unforgettable memories of the UNNC Symphony to the citizens of Ningbo.
