Description:

Deadline for the U.S./Japan Creative Artists' Program: February 1, 2014

The National Endowment for the Arts cooperates with the U.S. Japan Friendship Commission in the implementation of this program. The U.S/Japan Creative Artists' Program provides support for up to five outstanding contemporary or traditional artists from the United States to spend a three-month residency in Japan. Eligible applicants are landscape architect, architects, choreographers, composers, creative writers, designers, media artists, playwrights, visual artists, or solo theater artists who work with original material (including puppeteers, storytellers, and performance artists). Multidisciplinary artists and artistic directors of theater or dance companies are also eligible.

The next deadline for this program is February 1, 2014, for residencies in 2015.

The U.S/Japan Creative Artists' Program is extremely competitive; applicants should have regional or national recognition and anticipate a highly rigorous review of their work. Artists should also present compelling reasons for wanting to work in Japan.

Selected artists will receive:

  • A grant award in the amount of $20,000 to cover housing, living, and professional expenses for either one artist or a collaborative team.
  • Up to $2,000 for round trip transportation for the artist.
