The mission of Hayama Artist Residency is to introduce visual artists from around the world to Japanese culture and offer them an opportunity to have their first gallery exhibition in Japan. This is a 4 week residency in a small, coastal Japanese town in Kanagawa Prefecture, on central Honshū, Japan.
The 2023 residency dates are June 1 - 30, 2023.
The Hayama Artist Residency application is open to any visual artist over 21 years old, working in any medium—based anywhere in the world, regardless of race, gender, culture, or religion. We can only accept applications in English at this time. It is our goal to offer applications in other languages in the future.
If you are selected for the residency, you will receive a roundtrip flight to Narita International Airport (Narita) or Tokyo International Airport (Haneda), and shared accommodations for 4 weeks. Each artist-in-residence will receive a weekly allotment of $200 USD for meals and local transportation. There is a $95.00 USD application fee. This includes written feedback on your submission from our director and Selection Committee - a cohort of international curators and arts professionals.
The application deadline is 11:59pm ET on Jan 15, 2023.
