EOI Now Open for The Kyoto Art Center Residency Exchange

The Australia Council for the Arts today announced a partnership with the Kyoto Art Center that will allow one Australia visual artist to live and work in Kyoto, Japan, as part of a September – October 2019 residency exchange program.

The successful artist will receive two months access to a studio inside Kyoto Art Center, a multi-art form venue in Kyoto that contains performance halls, exhibition spaces and artists’ studios. The Center also acts as a hub for visual arts and dance organisations in Kyoto and across Asia.

In addition to the studio residency, the artist will also receive accommodation at a private apartment located 10 minutes walk from the Center, and a $7,500 living and travel allowance from the Australia Council.

Residents at Kyoto Art Center work alongside other international and Japanese artists and can engage in local cultural activities, including tea ceremonies, traditional performances and workshops.

Expressions of Interest are now open and close 16 April 2019.

For more information and to apply, visit the Australia Council for the Arts website.
