Open Call for Tokyo Wonder Site residency programs

Tokyo Wonder Site Residency (TWS Residency) offers artist-in-residence programs for international creators working in creative fields such as art, design, music and architecture to stay, engage in creation and conduct research activities. It also provides creators with the opportunities to exchange creative ideas and to present the results of their residency at Open Studio, talk and other events.

Tokyo Wonder Site is a creative and communications platform dedicated to the generation and promotion of new art and culture from the heart of Tokyo. Based in TWS Hongo, TWS Shibuya and TWS Residency, Tokyo Wonder Site supports and nurtures young talent in all fields as well as takes a role as a hub in a global cultural network of affiliated cultural facilities in Japan and abroad, and at once a platform for both new talents and internationally active creators to exchange and showcase their works.

TWS Residency has opened in late 2014, offering the opportunity for creative individuals from all genres and nationalities to pursue their respective work in a shared process.
