We are pleased to inform you of an open call for “studio residents” interested to deepen their practice and research, extend their vision, engage in collaboration, evolve new ideas and develop something longer term in Tokyo with a sense of affinity to the concept of co-iki.

Suitable for:
●Artists, curators, researchers, craftspeople, entrepreneurs, professionals of all fields with no restriction on genre, age or nationality (e.g.. art, music, performing arts, traditional arts, architecture, cuisine, literature, sociology, mathematics, biology etc.)
● A creative who is active internationally with a long term view to developing new practices and ideas
●An interest to join in collaboration and the wish to work specifically in Tokyo.
●Someone who is comfortable with visitors coming and going in the open event/studio/living space, and not too concerned about absolute privacy of their room

How to apply: Please download the application form from the website and send to the email address indicated. Applications will be reviewed after the submission and applicants may be asked to join in an interview via skype. Applicants will be informed of the result within 1 month after the interview.

Resident Support
Residents in this program are expected to be independent, actively pursuing their research upon their own resources. co・iki does try to help as much as possible, offering coordination support of approximately 1-2 days a week, and with the director in residence participants don’t have to call far if they need a hand with something.
