3331 Arts Chiyoda
The newly established Tokyo-based arts centre, 3331 Arts Chiyoda, an innovative arts space launched in June 2010, offers a unique approach to creative practice, providing over 4 floors of exhibition space, workshop facilities, meeting rooms, office space for arts organizations, independent galleries, cafes, lounge, roof top allotments and sports amenities. It is a unique model which invites people of all generations, backgrounds and interests to participate in its open approach to fine art, fashion, design, music, alternative media etc., with various programmes which encompass people with disabilities, children, local residents, students, experts and those with a curiosity for the arts. It is designed not only as an arts hub for Tokyo and Japan, but as an international centre where creative practitioners from all over the world can come together.
As part of its range of activities, an artist in residence programme is launched, open to artists, curators and creative practitioners internationally. With a full range of facilities including accommodation, studio and gallery, creative practitioners have the exceptional opportunity to extend their artistic engagement in the heart of Tokyo. Not only will artists be able to pursue their own individual research and practice, but they will be connected to the extensive network of Tokyo's art scene through the hub of 3331. Artists are not only able to spend time in Tokyo, but are able to create work onsite and then finally exhibit what they have developed during their stay, in the distinct setting of 3331 Arts Chiyoda. These facilities are offered to artists who can contribute to the diverse creative expressions of this cosmopolitan metropolis and engage its inhabitants in new ways. Applications are particularly encouraged from galleries, museums, universities, arts organizations and funding bodies who are able to recommend and support a number of artists to join this program. 3331 is unable to offer financial support to artists in residence in this programme.
The deadline for applications for this residence programme to take place between January and June 2011 is 19 November 2010.
