Japan Media Arts Residency Open for registration


The Japanese Government Agency for Cultural Affairs and the Computer Graphics Art Society (CG-ARTS) are now accepting applications for the first-ever Residency Program for Media Arts Creators Abroad. Young artists working in mediums such as media arts, video, games, animation, graphic novels, etc. are invited to apply for one of the three slots before August 19, 2016.

The residency program will offer selected applicants a chance to live and work in Tokyo, with the aim of creating and presenting a new piece there (or part of a new work in progress). Participants will receive training and guidance from local media arts experts and will be invited to visit creators and studios and participate in exchange events with working artists and students of the arts program.

Prospects can apply for a residency period of 100 days (December 1, 2016 to March 10, 2017) or 50 days (January 20 to March 10, 201). The program covers travel expenses, a living allowance, travel insurance, and rental accommodation (including workspace) in Tokyo. The residency is open to applicants who live outside of Japan and are not Japanese citizens.

Guidelines and application are available here.
