The TWS CiR Open Studio will showcase the work of creators invited or sent to take part in the Creator in Residence (CiR) program at Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS) in 2010.

With the 21st century came a growing recognition of the importance of creative hubs in art production; of places where creative individuals can mix and inspire each other, forming new cultural currents. Residency programs too continue to grow more vital than ever as settings for the creation of art.

TWS serves as a Tokyo platform for the work of creators from across the globe. Every year around one hundred individuals take part in the program, dedicating themselves enthusiastically to the production of artworks both in Tokyo and at designated locations overseas. Day-to-day art research and production take place at TWS throughout the year, artists in residence and other creators interacting and encouraging each other to take new and exciting directions in their work.

Tokyo Story is a collection of Tokyo tales spun by creators, tales born out of Tokyo, and tales spun by Tokyo.

A story from Tokyo dedicated to returning hope and good cheer to the Japanese capital, and to Japan as a whole; to helping make the whole world a better place through the power of creativity.
