About S-AIR
http://www.s-air.org/
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.

In 2011, S-AIR initiated a new programme, FRONTIER, which is supported by the Agency for Cultural Affairs. In April 2013, S-AIR has moved its office to central Sapporo, and so far has hosted 81 participants in total from 33 countries and regions over the period of 15 years (by June 2014).
