S-AIR Autumn 2011 Artist-in-Residence Programme: FRONTIER
For One Artist from 12th Oct -12th Dec (60 day programme)

How to Apply

Over the 2 periods of Autumn and Winter, artists will be invited to take part in the residency programme in Sapporo, Japan. The island of Hokkaido only began its modernisation 140 years ago, meanwhile, art has been developing for centuries with a rich heritage. Even though Hokkaido is not usually associated with art, some people have great passion and see much potential in both Hokkaido and in art. This programme is designed for artists, who would challenge in a different environment from a different perspective and be at the frontier to discover a new field of expression and the potential of the local resources.
