Only three days left for early bird discounts - join us in Kyoto!

Early bird registration for ┬┤Creative Encounters: Reimagining Residencies┬┤ ends 30/11.

Dont wait, sign up today - just 3 days left to get early bird discounts! 

"Creative Encounters: Reimagining Residencies" will take place February 6-8, 2019 hosted by Kyoto City and Kyoto Art Center in cooperation with the Agency of Cultural Affairs.

The 3 day meeting will address the evolution of artists residency models and rapid expansion of the field through a full timetable of excursions, speeches, discussions and networking. We will compare traditional ‘time and space’ models with new residency typologies that reflect our changing social economy. Nomadic, start-up, virtual and Airbnb residencies will all be explored. The meeting will pose questions about the progression of the field using examples in Japan and internationally. How can we evaluate these new models? How can artists residencies remain socially engaged and respond to artists’ needs? How are these innovative new models funded?

These key themes of the meeting will be reflected in Kyoto, a unique city where traditional and contemporary arts co-exist. Like artists in residence encountering different places for the first time, participants will experience the rich culture of Kyoto by way of excursions, city walks and tea ceremonies that will encourage further dialogue on this changing landscape.

Early bird registration must end November 30th!
