Artist Residency Yamanashi, Japan

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

This is the inaugural partnership between PSFS and AIRY. Based in Vancouver, BC, Canada PSFS was founded in 1977 to cultivate Japanese Canadian culture. AIRY was founded in 2005 in the mountainous region of Yamanashi, Japan to create connections between the local community and artists from Japan and abroad.

What Makes this event different?

This is a unique opportunity to work and live in rural Japan, working in a historic former obstetrics and gynecology clinic in Marunouchi, Kofu. The now-converted artist space is both founded and run by fellow artists.
