AAUK ResidencyPost 3.11 Japanese Tsunami/ Nuclear fallout disaster, responding to the plea from local artists, we established a residency project in UK to give time/space for the artists dealing with the complex issues relating to the disaster. By profiling and giving exposure to these young and emerging artists we are hoping to highlight wider environmental / political issues, and to develop closer links between communities in UK and Japan.
We are offering artists/ researchers/ curators/ post graduate students, micro residencies, staying with an artist/architect family in South East London, with easy access to galleries and museums.
