Do a Front


The premise includes a 70 years old concrete block building, two 100 years old wooden houses, a steel-frame warehouse with a ceiling height of 5 meters and a wooden warehouse with a ceiling height of 5 meters. The lumber warehouse with a ceiling height over 5 meters would be open to artists as a studio. The premise is accessible from two streets, therefore suitable as an open public space. The traditional Japanese wooden houses will be used for accommodation. After the completion of the artists project, the artists will present their piece. Our staff will support the artists to the best of our ability [ie. research, workshop, etc]. Do a Front has held three exhibitions and several town events since the organization was established in 2012.

Residency Programme since: 2012
Description of Organisation:

It is a small residence run by individuals. You are staying in a traditional Japanese house. We also offer a large warehouse as a studio. An exhibition can be held if you wish. As it is a small city, you can also interact with the residents. I expect new discoveries in this place.
