Funding Opportunity: 2017 U.S./Japan Creative Artists’ Program

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 to five month residency in Japan.

Eligible applicants are 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, 2016 for residencies in 2017.

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 up to $24,000 to cover housing, living, and professional expenses for either 1 artist or a collaborative team.
  • Up to $2,000 for round trip transportation for the artist.
