platform05 is an artist in residence space located in Beppu (Kyushu, South Japan). The space can be used for daily or short-term residence's projects. The residency space is a Japanese house called Nagaya (row house); the traditional form of urban housing in Japan dating back several hundred years.

This platform is a space of possibilities. It is a stimulating environment for artists and creators who would like to take time to develop and nurture their ideas. Located at the heart of a middle-size city, it is like a window opened on a place full of tradition, history and with a time passing by at a different rhythm. Also the natural feature of the city with tones of hot spring water sprouting from the ground, makes it a very special place. The introduction of contemporary art in this place turns out to be really strong. That is why this is an important space for the artists and creation. The residence is offering an ideal time and space for the time of research and for giving birth to emerging ideas.

Please check also the residency Beppu Project for other open calls.
