Two residency opportunities are currently available for artists and curators to apply to at ARCUS Project, Ibaraki and Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS), Tokyo. The deadline for both applications is 26 August 2019, 5pm.

In 2019 and 2020 Cove Park, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop (ESW) and Hospitalfield are collaborating with a number of partners in Japan to deliver a new residency exchange programme for artists, makers/designers and curators based in Scotland and in Japan. This programme, supported by British Council Scotland and Creative Scotland, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, takes place over two years, marking the British Council’s UK/Japan 2019/2020 Season of Culture and the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Information on how to apply is available here.

Further information on the first residencies for artists based in Scotland awarded as part of this programme (Florence Dwyer and Stacey Hunter with both AIT and CRIA) is available here. In September this year, Cove Park welcomes the artist Nobuko Tsuchiya and Hospitalfield hosts the artist Nao Nishihara.
