3331 Artist & Curator in Residence Program
Art Matters 
April & May 2011
Japan has suffered a great deal from the devastating earthquake and
tsunami and we are all led to question what is important to us at this
time. And as we consider such things we can only come to an even
stronger conclusion as to the significance of art. It is a time to
prove this significance.
3331 is calling for artists who wish to undertake this challenge
and present their own reading of the power of art. In a time of
difficulty what makes art matter? What role can art play in our lives?
What meaning can it hold for us? We invite artists to face these
questions and pursue personal answers at a time when such matters can
not be ignored.
3331 is able to provide accommodation and studio facilities for
artists, as well as an opportunity to give a presentation with regard
their work to a select audience/general public, along with thorough
support being offered towards the artists' projects.
If you are interested to join this program please contact Emma Ota at +81 3-6803-2441 as soon as possible
5% discount if booked for full month = ¥266,000

3331 Arts Chiyoda is dedicated to creating a space where people of
all backgrounds and interests are able to come together in a creative
environment, and as part of this mission we are proud to be able to
offer a unique residency program open to artists, curators and creative
practitioners internationally. This includes not only the visual arts
but also practitioners in design, architecture, dance and music etc.
With a full range of facilities including accommodation, studio and
gallery, creative practitioners have the exceptional 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. With the energy of the electronics
and anime haven of Akihabara right at one's doorstep and the
traditional cultures of downtown but a stone's throw away artists will
be able to experience all aspects of this kaleidoscopic city from this
convenient base. Artists are not only able to spend time in Tokyo, but
are able to create work onsite and then finally exhibit what they have
developed during their stay, in the distinct setting of 3331 Arts
Chiyoda. We are pleased to be able to offer these facilities to artists
who can contribute to the diverse creative expressions of this
cosmopolitan metropolis and engage its inhabitants in new ways.
