While we are physically unable to host any international “A.A.I.R” resident artists at Awagami this year due to covid travel restrictions.
3 Japanese artists have been chosen for full residencies at the mill:
1.) Ms. Yougetsu Harada, Japan
2.) Ms. Kaoruko, Japan
3.) Mr. Yasu Suzuka, Japan

Furthermore, we created a shortened “remote” program for 2 photographers to participate on a much smaller scale from their home countries:
1.) Mr. Sebastien Siraudeau, France
