3331 Arts Chiyoda offers a residency program open to artists, curators and creative practitioners internationally. With a full range of facilities including accommodation, studio and gallery, creative practitioners have the opportunity to extend their artistic engagement in the heart of Tokyo. Not only will artists be able to pursue their own individual research and practice, but they will be connected to the extensive network of Tokyo’s art scene through the hub that is 3331. 33331 particularly encourages applications from galleries, museums, universities, arts organizations and funding bodies who are able to recommend and support a number of artists to join this program. They also welcome approaches from artists who are able to secure their own sources of funding. They recommend that artists consider applying in groups of 2-5 in order to reduce the financial responsibility of the individual. Please note that 3331 is unable to offer financial support to artists in residence in this program.
