No Funding
Free / No Costs
Tokyo, Japan


Providing an intensive period of stay and production, the AIR 3331 program has been host to artists, curators and researchers who act as “magnets”, interlinking their respective localities through art. The program aims to facilitate discovery and the mutual exchange of diverse values at a local level, inspired by the unique culture, history and stories of the immediate community. The program maintains flexibility in accommodating participants from Japan and overseas who work in a diverse range of genres, including visual and media art, design, performing arts, music and architecture. While AIR 3331 offers basic its support, participants must be self-driven and able to independently undergo their project in Tokyo.

Program Description

“AIR 3331” is an AIR (Artist in Residence) program established by 3331 Arts Chiyoda - an artist-run center based in a repurposed school, whose former classrooms house 4 floors of exhibition space, independent galleries, workshop facilities and more. With various programs and a diverse influx of visitors to connect with, 3331 Arts Chiyoda is well situated as a base for creative practitioners from around the world. AIR 3331 is uniquely centered in the eclectic Kanda area and set to the backdrop of Tokyo, whose figure as an international city intersects with the atmosphere of the past, as seen in Akihabara, Ochanomizu, Bakurocho, Ueno, and other nearby neighborhoods. Participants have the opportunity to stay, create and present right in the heart of Tokyo’s art scene with the choice of either a studio/gallery space inside 3331 Arts Chiyoda, or the nearby live-in studio to be newly established in March 2019.
