TERACCO New Volunteer Briefing for volunteers and interns supporting TERATOTERA Festival 2020

TERATOTERA is a series of art projects closely connected with the area between the Koenji and Kokubunji stations on the JR Chuo Line. Since 2010, TERATOTERA has presented exhibitions, talks, and live performances in these communities with the aim of generating an art movement in the area.
Spearheading TERATOTERA-related planning and operation in terms of general PR, artist support, the recording of events and such like have been the volunteers and interns nicknamed TERACCO.
Current TERACCO volunteers range in age from their teens to their sixties, and come from a variety of backgrounds. Diverse individuals collaborate to bring about each project.

This time around we’re looking for volunteers and interns for the TERATOTERA Festival 2020, when the event marks its tenth anniversary. No knowledge of art or project management experience is necessary.
You can also limit your participation to helping out at the information desk on the day. People who want to get more involved can be responsible for assisting participating artists with production. You are free to participate as much or as little as you want.
This is the last outing for the TERATOTERA Festival, which has been going since 2011. The scale of the event is being expanded to include facilities and parks in the area around Musashi Koganei Station up to Kichijoji Station.
Please see here for details of “TERATOTERA Festival 2020 – Collective: Next-generation symbiosis.”

Come to the introductory briefing to find out more about TERACCO activities from TERACCO members, and about participating artists. This is your last chance to get involved with TERATOTERA! Join us as we look behind the scenes of art projects.
