The Villa Kujoyama
Resident artists are asked to establish working relationships with the professional, academic, artistic and cultural environments of Kyoto, the Kansai region and the archipelago as a whole. To do this, they can rely on the Villa team and the French cultural network in Japan which in addition to the Villa includes the 5 Japanese branches of the Institut français (Fukuoka, Kyoto, Osaka, Tokyo, Yokohama), 4 Alliances Françaises (Nagoya, Sendo, Sendai, Tospin) and a Research Institute (Tokyo).
The Villa Kujoyama is an establishment of the Institut français of Japan. It is supported by the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation, which is its main sponsor, and the Institut français.
The Villa Kujoyama offers three distinct programmes
a French or foreign candidate residing in France for at least 5 years presents a research and creation project.
two French or foreign candidates residing in France for at least 5 years present a joint project.
a French or foreign candidate who has been residing in France for at least 5 years in collaboration with a Japanese candidate residing in Japan presents a joint project.
