Akiyoshidai International Art Village (AIAV)-Japan > Artist in residency programme: trans_2017-2018

As a base for expressive and creative activities of both international and domestic artists, “Akiyoshidai International Art Village(AIAV)” was constructed August 1998, in Shuho Town next to The Akiyoshidai National Park, which beautiful limestone landscape was formed over three hundred million years ago.

The prefix ‘trans’ means to go beyond, get across, cross, exchange, change and convert. The Residence Support Programme provides a time and place for artists to experience new encounters and carry out experiments to guide their future projects. Participating artists are expected to bring new ideas to the local culture and people while they, in turn, will hopefully acquire new perspectives through these fresh encounters. As a result of the residence programme, the artists will convey their new experiences, gathered from the local lifestyle and our particular geographic situation, to their next destination. We hope that the residence program at Akiyoshidai International Art Village becomes a space for artists to go beyond cultural borders and expand their outlooks, exchange their unique understandings and establish relationships with fellow artists.
