Art in an age of Crisis

Art Action UK started the Residency project as a response to the 2011 Disaster in North East Japan which triggered the Fukushima nuclear fallout.  We are now open for 2018 – our 7th residency project.

We are calling for an artist / curator/ researcher, based in Japan and directly/ indirectly involved in the ongoing situation Post 3.11, to come and discuss and share experiences with a UK audience. Our aim is to foster cross-cultural interaction between people in the creative industries. This year, we are planning to deliver a symposium in early September in Central London, to which the Residency participant is expected to contribute. There is no plan of an exhibition for the residency artist, however there is an opportunity to present your practice during this symposium.

Who can apply?
An artist / curator/ researcher who has been directly or indirectly involved in the ongoing situation in the Fukushima area, and who’s work seeks to engage with the issues this has raised. There are no restrictions on genre, age, nationality or gender. However you need to be prepared to share your experience and communicate in English. There is an interpretation service between Japanese and English if needed for public occasions, but this services is limited to the presentation during the symposium.  Basic English language will be needed during the residency.

The Residency will run for 3–4 weeks from mid August to early September 2018. The details of these date are to be discussed between the host and the selected individual.
