The call is a joint initiative between Tabakalera - International Centre for Contemporary Culture and AIT - Arts Initiative Tokyo, with the collaboration of Spanish Cultural Action AC / E, the Etxepare Basque Institute, Eu Japan Fest and The Agency for Cultural Affairs Government of Japan . It aims to expand and promote the exchange of knowledge and experience between the Basque and Japanese artistic context.

According to the commission of mixed valuation, formed by Tabakalera and Arts Initiative Tokyo, both the proposals by Haizea Barcenilla and Maki Nishida meet the quality and conditions necessary to be beneficiaries of the residences, and the trajectories of both applicants have the necessary solvency to develop the projects and make the most of the exchange in the context of the program.
