How to Apply

AIR 3331 is currently accepting applications on an ongoing basis for residencies up until February 28, 2022. Openings will depend on residence availability.

Before Applying

3331 welcomes individual and group applications from all fields of creators and researchers. There are no restrictions on the method of expression, but we do ask the following at the time of application:

  • AIR 3331 is a self-funded residency. 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. Coordinators can offer basic support in either English or Japanese.
  • We seek participants with clear project goals, including a schedule 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 take full responsibility for the overall planning and results of their project.
  • Participants must abide by Japanese national law when engaging in activities.
