Plus, we have moved to our newly renovated Iwamotocho Residence & Studio facility located just steps behind the electronics and sub-culture district of Akihabara!! We offer a program that invites creators of all disciplines to openly undertake a project of their own at the cross section of Tokyo's Edo roots and its cutting-edge. Bring your ideas to the communities of 3331 Arts Chiyoda and greater Tokyo by sending us your application! (Apply: May 3 - July 5, 2019)

When creators arrive at 3331, our art center based in the repurposed former Rensei Junior High School, they are met with four floors comprised of community spaces, large-scale galleries, independent art galleries and creative companies, and a vast rooftop open to the sky. Look closely and you will find unique artworks and remnants of the former school on every floor!

Then take a 20-minute stroll through the energy-filled streets of Akihabara to the newly relocated AIR 3331 Iwamotocho Residence & Studio. Immediately, you will come across large glass doors leading into the 1F shared studio. Participants from across the world can work and exchange thoughts on a daily basis in the bright and open space, often leading to collaborated open studios and group shows. For creators looking for pure focus, our program also offers the choice of a private studio located inside 3331 or in the Iwamotocho Residence 3F.

The Iwamotocho Residence is also perfect for relaxing after a day of research and production. Enter the fifth-floor common space and find a kitchen fully equipped with a dishwasher, convection oven, and other cooking devices, making cooking and dining with other creators a fun activity. Participants may even stretch out on the extra-large sofa or warm up in the heated "kotatsu" table for comfort throughout the seasons.

With participants bringing their projects to the network of 3331 and the larger art scene of Tokyo, the AIR 3331 coordinators are here to help make creative goals a reality. From facility check-in to check-out, consultation on research to planning your proposed event, we are eager to offer you our support*. We look forward to your project becoming part of the rest of 3331 and Tokyo, offering us exciting opportunities to connect people, places, and ideas!
