Res Artis Meeting Kyoto, Japan

Registration for the next Res Artis Meeting in Kyoto is now open! The conference, Creative Encounters: Reimagining Residencies, will be hosted by Kyoto City and Kyoto Art Center in cooperation with the Agency of Cultural Affairs from February 6-8, 2019.

This 3-day meeting will address the evolution of arts residency models and rapid expansion of the field. 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? How can artist residencies remain socially engaged and respond to artists’ needs? How are these innovative new models funded?

These key themes of the meeting will be reflected in Kyoto, a unique city where traditional and contemporary arts co-exist. Like 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 and networking.

Early bird registration ends on November 15.

Secure your spot and sign up for the meeting now!
