BankART also provides rental opportunities but is not merely a hands-off rental business but strives to improve third-party events. We will work collaboratively with offers and proposals from outside organizations.
The basic format of a course is 8 sessions. The small class size makes it an intermediate level between a lifelong learning course and a graduate school class. Its objective is to become a modern-day 'terakoya' (public school for children set in temples).
BankART's artist-in-residence (AIR) program provides artists with the opportunity to use the exhibition space as a partitioned studio site. The program also offers exchange residency programs with Taiwan, Korea, and other countries.
The Cafe / Pub / Shop is located in BankART Station and is open from 11:00 to 22:30, anytime when the space is open. Closed during holidays.
