2012 FRONTIER Autumn Programme
Artist in Residence at S-AIR from 28th Aug to 19th Oct (60 day programme)
Call for Applications
NPO S-AIR are offering 2 places for a 60 day residency opportunity in Sapporo, Japan.
S-AIR will provide the successful candidates with the opportunity to learn about Japan, communicate with Japanese artists and local community, and to establish networks and dialogues between Japanese and international artists. Visual artists, new media artists, film and video artists, performing artists and music artists are all invited to apply for this opportunity.
The candidate will be expected to produce new works and will be encouraged to experiment in their own field. A collaborative work or project within the community is desirable. The artists will be asked to give either a lecture or a workshop as well as to have an exhibition or presentation during the residency as a result of the residency, this may be a solo show or a group show with the other artist in residence. The successful candidate will also be required to provide reports of their residency to S-AIR at the end of their residency and to seek opportunities to share their experience on their return to home country – this could mean an exhibition, a series of presentations or artists talks, or publication of articles, which have to be reported to S-AIR.
S-AIR was established in 1999 with partial funding by The Agency for Cultural Affairs, to run an artist-in-residence programme in Sapporo, Japan. Since it was approved to be a non-profit organisation in 2004, S-AIR started a collaborative residency project with ICC, in which we have been building networks with Japanese and international artists as well as art institutions in Japan and overseas. S-AIR has hosted 71 artists in total from 30 countries and regions over the period of 12 years (until March 2012).
