Main Programs

Awaji City and NAP Committee facilitates a two month studio and residency at both Nagasawa and Umihira-no-sato for several participants every year.


The training program application procedure is announced at the beginning of December each year and the Committee also informs registered artists and cultural organizations by e-mail. Several artists are selected every year by the NAP Committee. The Committee asks the artists to donate three of their print editions, from the three series of prints they produce while they are on the program, to Awaji City.
