Funding Opportunity: 2015 U.S./Japan Creative Artists' Program
Date: 11/26/2013 - 2/1/2014
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.
