Residency for International Creators with Exploratory Projects

The Residency for International Creators with Exploratory Projects invites outstanding young creators from overseas, providing them with a residency opportunity to engage with the creative culture of Japan, and encouraging international exchange by arranging opportunities to interact with creators in Japan.

About the Program:
This residency program is part of the “Project to Support Emerging Media Arts Creators” organized by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan (Bunka-cho in Japanese). Emerging artists in Media Arts (Media Geijutsu in Japanese) around the world are invited to come and stay in Tokyo to create new works. Whether the works are media art, videos, games, animations, or manga, the artists will be able to experience Japanese Media Arts culture, with additional opportunities to meet with Japanese creators to discuss their works. The aim of this program is not only to support the realization of works and research projects but also to stimulate cross-cultural dialogues through Media Arts.

Deadline: September 10, 2018 (JST).
