The SeMA Nanji Residency opened in 2006 and is part of the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA).

One working grant is available for visual artists for staying at SeMA Nanji Residency in Seoul, South Korea. The grant is provided for three months in the period April–June. The grant amounts to €2,000 a month. In addition to the working grant, the grantee also receives €1,000 to cover travel costs. The grantee is responsible for obtaining the visa and for other similar arrangements.

The residential centre is located in an old industrial facility in a park outside the city centre. It has 25 rooms for accommodation, conference facilities, an exhibition space, a sculpture park and a shared kitchen. The working space is located adjacent to the living quarters. Family members of the artists may not accompany the resident artist for the residency.

SeMA Nanji Residency serves as a venue for exhibitions and workshops, and it also supports artists and researchers in other ways.
