Project Description


In March 2017, Nicola Moss will embark on a residency at Youkobo Art Space in Tokyo. This immersive experience will provide Nicola with a unique opportunity to further explore the relationship between humans and the environment, within a different cultural context.

At Youkobo, Moss will continue her City and Nature Project, which looks at developing a curated ecology at the intersection of town planning, aesthetics, well-being and heritage, focusing specifically on the Ten Year Project for Green Tokyo. Her research will involve community engagement and process-driven documentation of place using techniques and media specific to her location, the outcomes of which will be presented in an open studio event at Youkobo.

Youkobo Art Space’s Artist-In-Residence program offers accommodation, studio space and exhibition space to international and Japanese artists. It aims to promote community engagement with art and to foster international relationships.

Nicola is undertaking this residency as a recipient of The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF). The RADF is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the City of Gold Coast Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
