About the Artist in Residence Programme
The Artist in Residence Programme is an important cultural, artistic and educational addition to Leiden University's versatile academic profile. This year’s programme consists of workshops/classes for students taught by a Japanese contemporary artist invited to Leiden. The initiative was made possible through the generosity of The Japan Association for Promotion of Arts (JAPA), and The Isaac Alfred Ailion Foundation.
