r:ead (Residency East Asia Dialogue)

Toshima-ku, Tokyo

Launched as an artist-in-residence program under the auspices of NPO Art Network Japan, with the aim of sharing and developing an understanding of issues affecting the arts and society in East Asia. This program brings East Asian artists and the critics, dramaturges, and curators who collaborate with them to Japan on two visits. The first time consists of a week of dialogue and research, and the second consists of a three-week residence for working on their art. This arrangement creates a communication platform.
