Nomadic Red Corner is a collaborative project between MONGOLIAN CONTEMPORARY ART SUPPORT ASSOCIATION and ART SPACE 976+, initiated to bring art closer to the Ger District residents, through its creative community development activities and artist residency programs. The Ger District is home to more than 800,000 people, mostly rural migrants and low-income families. The district lies on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar city, has limited access to utilities and infrastructure and lacks street lighting, pedestrian roads, green park and public spaces.

Since its inception in 2020, Nomadic Red Corner has created artistic neighborhoods in Chingeltei, Sukhbaatar and Bayanzurkh districts, covering around 24.000 sq.m area. Artists, art students and volunteers painted buildings and fences, created sculptures and installations in public areas and participated in art events, exhibitions and workshops, working together with local community.

As part of the initiative, international artist residency was established by the end of 2021 with the support from the Goethe International Relief Fund 2021. The residency is currently settled in the courtyards of Magic Land Community Center 2, at Uliastai area of Bayanzurkh district. The compound consists of 3 traditional Mongolian dwellings Gers, two of which are built for accommodating up to 6 artists and another for public usage. The residency accepts international artists through applications.

In the past Nomadic Red Corner received funds and supports from EUNIC, Goethe Institute, Ministry of Culture of Mongolia, Alliance Francois, Embassy of the United States, Embassy of Czech Republic, Sukhbaatar District Government and collaborated with Uuliin Nuur Community Park and Magic Land Community Center.
