In March of 2020 senselessart Studio started our first guest artist in residency program by inviting Victoria Walvis into the studio.
"Room to write is hard to find in Hong Kong, and I am grateful to senselessart for sharing this inspiring space. I love poetry. I plan to use the studio to work on my first collection, and to become a better writer, something that you can only do by, well, writing."
- Victoria Walvis
Walvis runs regular workshops in collaboration with Peel Street Poetry, and contributes regularly to open mics with Peel Street and Poetry OutLoud. She was recently longlisted for the 2019 National Poetry Competition in the UK, and has also performed at the Hong Kong International Literary Festival and the Hong Kong Spoken Word Festival in 2019.
Walvis will be working on her first collection of poems, and has also expressed interest in writing about the studio itself. The final date of her tenancy is uncertain due to the current situation.
