Artist-In-Residence Programs (AIR) have become firmly established within performing arts industries, utilised by many theatres, festivals, collectives and individual artists. In recent years, simultaneous to this, there has been a rise in a variety of other projects such as networking programs seeking to connect young artists and producers, and projects to enable collaboration between artists, centred around specific themes. The “Performing Arts AIR Meeting” features a lecture and symposium to enable this same networking and information sharing specifically amongst people involved in performing arts AIR programs. We hope to share examples of AIR programs in Japan and abroad, and facilitate a discussion about new possibilities of AIR in the performing arts.
