Aichi University of the Arts invites artists from around the world to the university through an artist-in-residence programme with the goal of promoting collaboration in education and artistic activities. By inviting artists, (including artist groups) who are actively engaged in artistic endeavours, the university aims to enhance exchanges among artists, faculty members and students, and thereby adds some fresh air to the university as an education and research hub with an active atmosphere.
The programme focuses on Fine Arts (painting, sculpture, installation, print making, design, photography, film, etc.) and is open to individuals and groups (but with no change to the grant amount for groups). Residencies can last between 30-100 days and take place during the period from 1 June 2022 – 16 December 2022.
