The Immigration Museum Tokyo (IMM) program has used contemporary art as a medium to put together art projects through exchange and interaction with foreigners living in the community. Program organizers are seeking IMM project members to help out with an exhibition slated for summer 2020.
People of any nationality aged 16 or above
*The current IMM planning team has a very international feel, with members from Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan. We look forward to the participation of people of various nationalities.
*Participation is restricted to people who can communicate in either Japanese, English, Mandarin, Cantonese or Korean.
Tokyo University of the Arts, Senju Campus / others
The following activities will be conducted in the run-up to the 2020 exhibition. Participants can engage in activities they are interested in and are good at (further details will be provided at the briefing).
*Activities slated to commence in October 2019
Research into real-world multiculturalism
Tokyo is dotted about with places where we can experience diverse cultures within Japan; the multilingual announcements at Shin Okubo Station, a kebab joint in Roppongi where Turkish is the only language you hear, the mosque in Yoyogi Uehara. Maybe you’ve been interested in checking out such multicultural facilities, shops, restaurants and organizations but feel uncomfortable going alone. On this program you will access and discover an unknown world with likeminded people, and conduct research through on-the-ground experiences and exchange.
Exchanging ideas on the exhibition
Based on their research into multiculturalism, members will exchange ideas concerning the IMM exhibition to be held in 2020.Your ideas could make it to the event!
Art tour guide duties at the IMM exhibition
In an opportunity for project members to demonstrate the multicultural literacy they have accumulated during their research activities, we will appoint interested parties as guides for the 2020 IMM exhibition.
