Roppongi Art Night is a festival of arts that takes place on the stage of Roppongi city. Held continuously since its inaugural edition in 2009, the festival aims to further the possibilities of art within society by developing content such as art exhibitions, music, performances, and talk events throughout the entire city of Roppongi, a place known for its concentration of cultural facilities (including art museums), large-scale complexes, and shopping districts.

Due to the COVID crisis, Roppongi Art Night 2020 scheduled for May 2020 was cancelled, and the next edition of the event is slated for May 2021. However, the Roppongi Art Night Executive Committee has decided to develop a Spin-off Project that will differ from the usual Roppongi Art Night, with the hopes of using the power of art to inject an energy of revitalization into the city, even in these times of the pandemic.

The theme of the event is “Can art energize the town today? Roppongi Art Night Digital “RAN TV” is a platform that runs parallel to the real event in the digital world.

This call to artists is for two categories of work: video artworks that will be included in Roppongi Art Night Digital [RAN TV], and an animated title that will become the face of the digital platform.
