Aomori Contemporary Art Center
The Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC), Aomori Public University opened in December 2001 as an artistic institution centered around an artist in residence program. The city of Aomori supports international exchanges focused on creating new culture, by supporting artists' creative activities centered on the artists-in-residence project, and deepening city residents' interest in local culture by providing a space where residents and artists can meet through exhibitions, workshops and other activities.
During the residency, artists are expected to participate in the artist talk; a lecture, a workshop and a local traditional craft workshop. (The host will provide and pay the cost for any materials used in such exchange programs.) Artists from abroad are required to present the results of their work during their stay in Japan in a language other than Japanese within 1 year after the residency.
Shared studio in the creative hall.
The center will provide the artist with residential facilities during the program period. There is a private single room / 19.44㎡; bathroom and kitchen facilities are shared.
Located on 33.5 ha of city-owned land adjacent to Aomori Public College, which is in the suburbs of Aomori. Approximately 40 minutes from JR Aomori Station.
