Looking for kyodo 20_30 participants!

  • Art Project ,
  • Others

kyodo 20_30 is an art project where we collaborate with youth aged 20-30 who will be responsible
for our society in 10 years (in 2030).

Through various creations in regards to the “invisible borders/walls” which is the theme of Beyond Invisible Borders, we will have discussions and go through multiple processes for mutual-understanding.

This program is based in Kyodo, Setagaya-ku in Tokyo, and it encourages participants to collaborate (kyodo) with people with different identities through workshops and lectures, and reflect on our future community (kyodo).

kyodo 20_30 is looking for new participants (players).
