With the aim of introducing a range of domestic and international Microresidence programs and providing opportunities for information exchange and networking, the Microresidence Meeting will hold a two-day meeting on February 9 and 10 at Koshoji Temple in Kyoto. 

Taking place in a historical temple in Kyoto, the meeting will consist of presentations and a workshop on Day 1 in which domestic and international artists will have the opportunity to consult with Microresidence directors from Japan and overseas with the aim of fostering new networks and expanding artists horizons. It is hoped this will lead to new opportunities for domestic and international artists to participate in microresidencies in Japan and overseas. The second day will consist of an optional program, including an early Zen Meditation and breakfast at Koshoji Temple, and a guided tour of Nishin-jin district.
