AAUK は 2011年東日本大震災以降、厳しい社会状況の中で現状に真摯に対峙しつつ活動しているアーチスト達をサポートしてきました。2021年度は、これまで年に一人だけであったアワードの枠を広げて、世界的なコロナ禍の中で苦肉苦戦をされている若手のアーチスト及びアート関係の業務に従事しているキュレーターや研究者そして学生の方々に対してそれぞれ個別に英国の専門家がメントーリング・サポートを行います。変動する世界の中でアートを通してどの様に貢献していけるのか、具体的にそれぞれの将来へ向けての方向性を見出すメントーリング・サポートを行い、また、その最終結果を国際的に発信します

Since 2011, after Japan suffered an unprecedented disaster when the nuclear power station was destroyed by a tsunami, AAUK has been supporting artists dealing with complex issues through Residency programme. Today because of the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic,  many  artists and art workers are wrestling with difficult issues. For 2021 we are extending our yearly award to 5 artists/ art workers to take part in online residency/ mentoring scheme to offer our support. We hope to support participants through providing opportunity for a discourse about art in the changing world.The result of Residency will culminate towards online exhibition / event which will be transmitted internationally.

Who can apply for the VIRTUAL residency? (5 places)

応募資格;バーチャル・レジデンシー (5名)


The programme is open to artists, art workers, curators, researchers or art students who are working in Japan, or who are dealing with issues related to the post Fukushima socio political situation in Japan. Applicants do not need to be Japanese nationals, nor have an extensive track record as artists. However, basic English is a requirement as we cannot provide translation. (Alternatively, mentees are welcome to bring their own interpreters.)
