One of the newest residency programs in Japan for international artists inaugurated in 2016
Residency Program for Overseas Media Arts Creators
This residency program is part of the “Project to Support Nurturing of Media Arts Creators” organized by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan (Bunka-cho). 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, during their stay the artists will be immersed in Japanese Media Arts culture, with an additional opportunity to meet with Japanese creators to discuss their works. The aim of this program is not only to support the creation of significant works but also to promote a better understanding of other cultures including Media Arts in Japan.
