Villa Kujoyama celebrates its 30th anniversary

  • Kyoto
From 1 November 2022 to 31 December 2022
Built on the foundations of the first Franco-Japanese cultural centre constructed in 1924, the Villa Kujoyama was created in 1992 to become one of the most prestigious artistic residences administered by the Institut français. Alongside its 400 award-winning artists, Villa Kujoyama is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

The Villa Kujoyama renews its commitment to artists and craftsmen by offering them a research period in a place of excellence, at the crossroads of disciplines, where creativity in touch with our contemporary world is developed, thanks to the patronage of the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation since 2014.

The festivities for the 30th anniversary of Villa Kujoyama are taking place in France and in Japan.
