Scotland/Japan Residency Exchange Programme

We are delighted to announce that the first residencies for artists based in Japan as part of the Scotland/Japan Residency Exchange Programme have been awarded through Cove Park to Nao Nishihara and Nobuko Tsuchiya. Nao will be based at Hospitalfield in Arbroath for four weeks in September and Nobuko will join us at Cove Park for four weeks from mid-August this year.

This programme was developed by Cove Park, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop (ESW) and Hospitalfield in partnership with the Japanese residency organisations AIT, ARCUS, TOKAS and CRIA. The first residencies for artists based in Scotland were awarded to Florence Dwyer and Stacey Hunter and took place at AIT and CRIA earlier this year.

The programme is supported by British Council Scotland, Creative Scotland, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation. It marks the British Council’s UK/Japan Season of Culture 2019/2020 and the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Further information is available here.
