Information about the call for application:
As a program of the Goethe-Institut, the Villa Kamogawa offers German artists and people active in culture the opportunity, to live and work in Japan on a three months scholarship.
The residency in Kyoto should serve as an inspiration and as an artistic orientation to the scholarship holders. In direct, personal exchange with the local cultural scene, they can develop new projects and can establish or strengthen work contacts with Japanese cultural Institutions and people active in culture.
In this manner, an intercultural dialogue unfolds, which enriches both the scholarship holders and the Japanese cultural scene.
