Before Applying

3331 welcomes individual and group applications from artistic creators, curators, and those with specific research goals. There are no restrictions on the method of expression, but we do ask the following at the time of application:

・Applicants (individuals or organizations) must cover the costs of facilities, travel and living expenses, as well as production costs. 3331 cannot provide grants or scholarships.
・Japanese is not a requirement. However, a conversational level of English will help.
・We seek participants with clear project goals, including an outline/timeline for the completion of the proposal, keeping in mind the larger context of 3331 and the community (Tokyo's Chiyoda City in particular). Participants should be self-sufficient enough to take responsibility for the overall planning and results of their project.
