Open call from Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Japan for “Visiting Artists, Researchers and Curators in Residence - Support Program 2016.” This program provides various supports for grant-aided artists from Asia and researchers/curators on Asian art who wish to produce artwork or conduct to research by staying in Fukuoka at their own expense.

By accepting artists from Asia and researchers/curators on Asian art to stay in Fukuoka for a certain period of time and support their art-making and research activities, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (FAAM) aims to contribute to the development of Asian art and to become a platform for art exchange in Asia.

Moreover, by implementing various art exchange programs such as collaborative art-making and workshops during their stay, the FAAM provides opportunities for the local people of Fukuoka to directly engage with art. The FAAM believes these opportunities will result in broadening and deepening the public understanding of Asian art, thus cultivating the regional culture.
