Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
We've mainly worked with artists whose work include painting, sculpture, installation and video, but all artists of all disciplines are welcome.
English speaking staff will assist you to find what you need in Tokyo.

You will stay at a two story house. You will have a private room, and share the dining / living room with a host, who is a director of Art Center Ongoing.

We don't have a studio space, but you can use your room as a studio. If you prefer somewhere special, we can ask local artists if they have a good space you can use.
