As well as enhancing grant programs, Arts Council Tokyo will run the Tokyo Cultural Program*1 in the lead-up to 2020, seeking to ensure that everyone can take part in and enjoy events that utilize not only cultural facilities, but also the capital’s distinctive urban districts and each community’s cultural resources, such as parks and landmarks. In addition, we will implement multifaceted projects, including those focused on cultivating the personnel whose role is to link art with society and communities confronting social issues from an artistic perspective.
