Here is a brief introduction to 3331
Arts Chiyoda:

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.
