OPEN SITE – Japan

OPEN SITE - New open call program waiting for your proposal!!
―――――――――――――――
Application Deadline: 5/23(Mon) without fail

OPEN SITE further develops TWS major open call programs Tokyo Experimental Festival and Emerging Artists Support Program. For over 10 years, each program has supported cross-genre experimental performances and those who aspire to plan and carry out exhibitions.

Utilizing the experience of these two programs, TWS starts the program attained by shaping ideas to the times and by remodeling them into the environment of the creativity needed for our future as well as the sensitivity of that.
OPEN SITE opens the door to accept multiangular activity in creative fields. By this program, TWS will strive to make it to be a new platform for future art and to be a venue for creators from all genres to interact. Its primary theme, “OPEN SITE,” represents its charge to work together with others to create a “site.” 
Not only the planning of performance or exhibition, OPEN SITE also supports that of all: screening, lecture, workshop, symposium, presentation of research, etc. TWS expands the support to the successful candidates in this new program: subsidies, providing TWS Residency as accommodation for residing overseas.

We covet your plan strongly motivated to present new sensation by making free use of the space at TWS Hongo.
