Call for Residency Program based on the theme in Tokyo in 2019!

【TOKAS Residency】Open Call for International Creator Residency Program (Theme Projects) 2019.

※ "Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS)" is the new name of former Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS) as of October 1, 2017. 

TOKAS offers artist-in-residence programs for international creators working in various creative fields to stay, engage in creation and conduct research activities. It also provides creators with the opportunities to exchange creative ideas and to present the results of their residency at Open Studio, talk and other events.

We are pleased to launch a new “Theme Project” within the scope of the open-call program ‘International Creator Residency Program” for the period from September 2019 to November 2019. The program aims to invite two distinguished and highly motivated international creators in the field of visual art, design, architecture and curation who would engage in creative activities based on the theme “Myth-understanding.” At the same time, we resume the “Local Creator Residency Program” in 2019 and are calling for two local creators in Japan who would stay at TOKAS Residency to work on the same theme during the same period from September 2019 to November, 2019. The four creators will have an opportunity to exchange ideas and have a dialogue based on the theme, while working independently on their own projects. The result of their residency will be presented at Open Studio and/or the Result Presentation.
