    The Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission offers leading contemporary and traditional artists from the U.S. the opportunity to spend three months in Japan through the U.S./Japan Creative Artists Program. Cultural understanding is at the heart of this program. Artists should have compelling reasons for wanting to work in Japan, and they should do preliminary research to identify contacts there. The Commission encourages artists to consider collaboration with Japanese colleagues, as appropriate for the artistic field. Artists are free to interact with artists anywhere in the country. A grant award of $20,000 will be provided to cover housing, living, and professional expenses and up to $2,000 for round-trip transportation will be provided. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and must live and work professionally primarily in the U.S. Also, candidates must be professional creative artists (contemporary or traditional). Applications in all disciplines are accepted. Visit the commission's website for more details.
