In such times as these ART MATTERS More!
In the aftermarth of the earthquake/tsunami a number of 3331's residence artists have become unable to undertake their residency term and we now have accommodation, studio and presentation space availiable for May and July this year. For many it may seem that Japan is a difficult place to develop research and art work at this time, but we would like to stress that at such a time art becomes even more important and as artists and creative practitioners we should consider what we can positively contribute in response to this situation.
If you are an artist or creative who feels the need to come to Japan at this time and lend your creative skills towards the recovery effort we would very much welcome your presence. For information about our residence faclities please refer to the following link. Please note that all rental fees stipulated may be further negotiated with special discount.
As part of our current project "Arts Action 3331" we are opening up our main gallery space to artists, organizers and fundraisers for free in order to raise awareness and gain support for the earthquake relief appeal. Artists who join the residence program also have the opportunity to present their work here if it is relevant and sensitive to the current circumstances. For information about this project please see the following link:
3331 staff are regularly visiting the affected areas to volunteer and are in the process of establishing an association for the creative redevelopment of the Tohoku region. We can therefore offer advice and support for artists wishing to make a direct contribution in these areas.
