Artist-in-Residence Program at the Toyama Institute of Glass Art
Toyama Institute of Glass Art (hereinafter referred to as “TIGA”) has undertaken a program called “Artist-in-Residence” since 2010. The aim of this program is to promote glass art and cultural activities in Toyama City, to invigorate the local community, and to develop human resources.
In this program, one artist who has been selected from a pool of international applicants produce his/her art works while staying in Toyama. In addition to making their own work, the artist interacts with local people and students through artist lectures and demonstrations. It is our hope that the selected artist will produce work that reflects a connection with the community of Toyama. The selected artist also has the opportunity to present his/her accomplishments through a solo exhibition at the prestigious Toyama Glass Museum at the end of the residency period.
The artist-in-residence can focus on his/her work for 6 weeks in a supportive and stimulating environment, surrounded by many beautiful local natural resources and excellent facilities for glass production. In addition, this program can serve as a public activity to engage the international audience by showcasing the work of an artist and the charm of “Glass Art City Toyama.”
This year due to Covid-19, we are only accepting applications from individuals living in Japan.
Period of the program : From October 21 to December 1, 2022 (6 weeks)
All materials must arrive by Wednesday, June 15, 2022 (Japan Time)
