Tokyo Arts and Space Residency

The Artists-in-Residence Program launched in 2006 was moved to this base in Tatekawa, Sumida-ku, Tokyo, in 2014 and here it has received many artists from abroad and creators working in numerous genres and functioned as a place for exchange in international activities. The studio spaces are also used for activities such as workshops and exhibitions that encourage interaction between the artists and creators and the community.
