A space for connecting art, environment, and community.

The Branch hosts resident artists from Japan and around the world who are working variously with relationships between human beings and the wider natural environment.

Artists spend time thinking, exploring, and working in The Branch and the surrounding Kitakagaya neighborhood, holding an exhibition at The Branch during their stay.

To foster interaction between artists and the local neighborhood and city, all resident artists undertake some form of community interaction during their stay.
