Creative Encounters: Reimagining Residencies” will take place February 6-8, 2019 hosted by Kyoto City and Kyoto Art Center in cooperation with the Agency of Cultural Affairs.

The 3 day meeting will address the evolution of artists residency models and rapid expansion of the field through a full timetable of excursions, speeches, discussions and networking. We will compare traditional ‘time and space’ models with new residency typologies that reflect our changing social economy. Nomadic, start-up, virtual and Airbnb residencies will all be explored. The meeting will pose questions about the progression of the field using examples in Japan and internationally. How can we evaluate these new models? In which ways can artists residencies remain socially engaged and respond to artists’ needs? How can you fund these innovative new models?

We will discuss these key themes of the meeting in Kyoto, a unique city where traditional and contemporary arts co-exist. Similar to artists in residence encountering different places for the first time, participants will experience the rich culture of Kyoto by way of excursions, city walks and tea ceremonies that will encourage further dialogue on this changing landscape.

Early bird registration must end November 30th!
