We are holding a seminar-style exercise for those who are interested in launching and directing art projects. Through discussions with guests and navigators as well as work among participants, participants will deepen their understanding of the kind of problems in a given situation, and how they can take action. Guests sharing their own experiences and perspectives during the exercise are Tae Yoshihara (art manager/art director), Shunsuke Onaka (graphic designer/poet), and Kaori Oda (filmmaker). Participants will acquire the ability to register questions within themselves, and to conceptualize and drive an art project.
