Open Call - International Artist in Residence in Beppu (JAPAN)


Deadline: June 21, 2013

The next KASHIMA 20132 (International Artistic Residency) will take place from September to October 2013 (dates to be confirmed).


We invite artists from various disciplines in the contemporary art field to submit their project by June 21, 2013 (before midnight, Japan Time).


Artists should think their projects on the theme "SPACE-TIME". The project will be shown in one or two streets in Beppu downtown in collaboration with the local activity (small shops, café, restaurant). Also, artists will be invited to participate to a forum-discussion with local population to talk and exchange ideas about the art work.


The npo BEPPU PROJECT runs an international artistic residency program in Beppu (JAPAN) within a five-year grant from the Agency for Cultural Affairs in Japan. Kashima, in Japanese, refers to the place where you stay when you heal your body and soul by doing spa-theraty in the onsen (natural hot spring). BEPPU PROJECT is running this International Residency Program to welcome artists and their creations from all over the world in Beppu city. We aim at bringing high level creations of the international artistic world into a local scene.


All the applications for this residency will be looked through with attention to the required documents (proposal, artist profile and example of a previous art work).


The selection results will be published on our website by July 15, 2013.
