Ou has undertaken numerous artist residencies in Australia, China, Japan, Chile and the USA, funded by grants from the Australia Council, Arts Victoria and by municipalities in China and Japan. She has also been the recipient of the Australia Council for the Arts Greene Street residency in New York and the Gertrude Contemporary studio residency.
