The AIR Program at Youkobo Art Space is run on the premise that the goals of the participating artists are of primary importance. The participants consult and work together with Youkobo to realize their projects. Involvement in art activities that Youkobo is developing in the community, such as the ‘Trolls in the Park’ open-air art exhibition, ‘Art Kids’ workshops, or projects organized in collaboration with the neighboring elementary school are also welcome. Please refer to the ‘related activities’ page of the website for more details.

The Youkobo facility consists of three unique accommodation and studios, gallery as exhibition space, and a lounge which facilitates archive of AIR related activities. Below is an explanation of the usable residency and studio spaces, listed as AIR-A, AIR-B, AIR-C. Please consult us for details about using the facilities in other combinations.
