The “Capacity Building Course for Leaders in Arts and Culture” is run as part of Arts Council Tokyo’s Tokyo Arts and Culture Consultation and Support Center (provisional title).
For 2023, in addition to interactive seminars, the course will offer three open lectures online.
Since 2018 we have offered a variety of programs to help develop the multi-faceted thinking abilities and skills essential to putting participants on the path to solving problems faced in their creative environment, to creating new value, as well as to achieving their goals.
We will be offering open lectures for everyone in arts and culture with a wide variety of careers and activity types.
Targeting not only people aiming to step up their activities but also those who are involved in arts and culture in a variety of ways and those who will fully engage in the sector going forward, these programs will offer pointers and knowledge for participants to advance their own activities.
Open lectures will interest:
– People considering taking an Interactive Seminar from next year onwards
– People who have previously taken a Capacity Building course
– People who want to acquire new learning or relearn with regard to their careers or activities
– People who want to take an online course for work life balance purposes
We look forward to your participation.
The following lectures will be conducted online with guest lecturers for each session and facilitators/advisors for the course as a whole, Tomonori Ogawa and Tomoko Wakabayashi.
Real-time lectures will feature Q&A sessions in which we will take questions and comments from participants.
