About the open call to the residence program 2014:

The city of Sapporo with residents as many as 2 million living in such a cold, snowy district is a rare large city in the world. As it snows heavily in the winter of Sapporo, residents are forced to live in an environment totally different from the circumstances in summer. Fighting against difficulties such as snow removal and damage, they have built up some ways to coexist with snow. In attempts to coexist with snow, ranging from road-heating and underground passages in infrastructure and transportation to residents’ daily activities, behaviors and winter entertainments including sports and snow festivals, all sorts of creative activities to vitalize the city are implemented.

After the opening, Tenjinyama Art Studio, where direct communication between visiting citizens and participating artists has been promoted naturally, will see its first winter. The scenery with rich greenery at Tenjinyama will change completely. Perhaps, there may appear an ideal place for creativity only found in winter. Making the most of that environment, the regional vitalization project will be conducted through art, viewing positively the lifestyle and city life in winter.

Focusing on three key words; winter, snow and Sapporo, each artist is expected to deepen their ideas through production. Through creating the work environment in winter and workshops and presentations by artists, the project will lead to the experimental introduction of creative experience in winter in the community. We look forward to receiving applications from many artists and creators.

Deadline: 14 December 2014
