The selected artist will be expected to produce new works and will be encouraged to experiment in his/her own field.
S-AIR was established in 1999 with partial funding by The Agency for Cultural Affairs, to run an artist-in-residence programme in Sapporo, Japan. Since it was approved to be a non-profit organisation in 2004, S-AIR started a 10-year collaborative residency project with ICC, in which we have been building networks with Japanese and international artists as well as art institutions in Japan and overseas. In 2011, S-AIR initiated a new programme, FRONTIER, which is supported by the Agency for Cultural Affairs. In April 2013, S-AIR has moved its office to central Sapporo, and so far has hosted 84 artists in total from 34 countries over the period of 16 years (as of March 2015).
