The Japan Foundation, Sydney, is now accepting proposals for the facetnate! 2010 program. Australia-based emerging visual artists and/ or curators are welcome to apply.

Proposals will be for visual art works - fine art, craft, film, new media, or other visual art – and should clearly demonstrate a strong Japan influence. Successful applicants will be required to coordinate a solo/ group exhibition or event as part of a collective project, which will run for the duration of 2010, following a launch in July.

The program is an initiative of the Japan Foundation, Sydney and aims to provide a platform for local artists to contribute to the dialogue between our two countries through artistic expression.

The Japan Foundation will provide successful applicants with a grant (A$3000) to carry out their project. We welcome proposals from individuals/groups from any ethnic background who meet the following criteria:
  • You are an emerging visual artist(s) and/ or curator(s) who has completed, or will have completed, tertiary studies in visual art by 2010.
  • While you do not need permanent residency status to apply, you must reside in Australia for the duration of 2010.
    You agree with the aims of the Japan Foundation and likewise have a passion for furthering cross-cultural exchange between Japan and Australia, and introducing Japanese art and culture in Australia.
  • You can clearly demonstrate that your work is influenced by Japan and/ or is a cross-cultural art project between Japan and Australia.
  • You are able to express yourself fluently (writing/ speaking) in English.
