Kinosaki International Arts Center in Japan: applications for the Artist-In-Residence program


The application deadline is Monday, June 4, 2018.

Applications are now open for the 2019-2020 Artist-In-Residence program at Kinosaki International Arts Center (KIAC), a creative residence facility centered on the performing arts.

KIAC is situated in Kinosaki Onsen, a hot spring town blessed with a 1300-year history. Kinosaki is located in Toyooka City, Hyogo Prefecture, which is well known for its rich natural environment and for having successfully reintroduced the Oriental White Stork back into the wild. KIAC is a facility where artists can concentrate on their creative activities. Since 2014, many artists have stayed here to create pieces of work that have then been spread both throughout Japan and overseas.

Artist-in-Resident program select projects with the potential to excel in any of the following criteria: ≪Diffusibility≫, ≪Internationality≫, ≪Locality≫, ≪Innovativeness≫ and ≪Artistic Potential≫. In addition to spread excellent art projects or activities in Toyooka/Kinosaki, artists are expected to meet the locals and tourists, for creating a place of new interactions.
