TOKAS: International Creator Residency Program in Tokyo

“International Creator Residency Program” aims to invite distinguished and highly motivated international creators in the field of visual art, film, design, architecture, and to give opportunities to work in Tokyo.
The open-call program “International Creator Residency Program (Theme Projects)” for the period from May to July 2025, invites two international creators who would engage in creative activities based on the theme “Technology and the future of humanity.” 
Together with two creators of “Local Creator Residency Program,” the 4 creators who work on the theme will seek to actively exchange ideas on the cultural differences in thoughts, recognitions, actions and languages, while working independently on their own projects.
