Artist testimonies

“The FTA Breathing Space is an unexpected respite from a dark period filled with endless challenges. I discovered the list of artists supported by the FTA with a sense of joyful celebration. Once again, I was able to feel my connection to the community and was bolstered by the very idea of its existence, by the strength of its newfound togetherness.”

Clara Furey, co-production


I am grateful to be part of the FTA Breathing Space. It helps me to reconnect with my bodily desires to solve my solitude and reach for more during this unprecedented period.”

Naishi Wang, research support


“The FTA Breathing Space came at a crucial time this year. With the help of FTA, I am now embarking on a new journey and starting a project, that I believe, will have a great impact on my personal career and community.”

“The two-week residency offered as part of the FTA Breathing Space has provided us with an opportunity to revisit our creative process with much-needed gentleness. A space to build, to convene, to reconsider, to take care of one another.”
