A Tokyo-based Artist Residency Suited to Long-term Activities

Youkobo Art Space is currently accepting applications for its Artist-in-Residence Program in 2019.

Various residency types that cater to different needs are on offer, either suited to artists who wish to concentrate on work in the studio, or realize an exhibition during their stay, or a living space for researchers and writers who don’t require a studio. 

Application period: February 2019 to March 2020

Deadline: June 30, 2018

======

Since establishing the AIR program in 1989, Youkobo Art Space has been host to a diverse range of activities developed by over 300 artists from 40 different countries. In addition, Youkobo also actively supports Japanese artists by providing a venue for presentation and opportunities to stay and work overseas. As a hub for domestic and international artists, Youkobo is a place where exchanges between people of different cultures occur naturally, leading to lasting connections between those who participate in our programs. Located in a tranquil residential area of Tokyo, but also benefiting from easy access to the city center, Youkobo is perfectly suited to artists who wish to focus on their creative activities. It is recommended that artists joining our program hold open studios or exhibition at the conclusion of their residency with us. Priority will be given to long-term residencies of two months or longer, but applications for a minimum of one month are also possible. 

The cost of using the facilities, travel and living expenses, and materials expenses are solely the responsibility of the artist. Youkobo cannot offer any form of financial support.
