The fiscal 2013 TWS Creator-in-Residence programs generated countless stories.The three young artists in the exhibition who took part in the Local Creator Residency Program, spending between six months and one year in residence, speak from diverse perspectives about society, the city, and their lives and present us with a clear sense of the issues we face in the world. Through their involvement with the local community, the four who took part in the Artists in Yubari program looked closely at Yubari's historical background, present, and future and developed an awareness of issues common to many contemporary cities.
