Arts Council Tokyo (ACT) and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government are carrying out various cultural programs ahead of Tokyo 2020 as Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL to bring excitement to this once in a life time event. As part of this effort, Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL Grant will provide support to variety of projects delivered by cultural/artistic organizations to enrich the Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL program line-up. The selected projects will be awarded maximum 20 million JPY and will be part of the official programs of Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL leading up to 2020.
One of the 4 categories “Overseas Artistic Creation in Tokyo” will provide support to projects in Tokyo that encourage creation of new art (including collaborative work) by artists residing abroad as well as overseas artists. This category intends to bring opportunities for the citizens of Tokyo to experience new and diverse works of art from around the world.
We aim to accelerate our support to projects which generate wide opportunities for the public to engage with the cultural programs and create legacies of arts and culture for future generations leading up to the year 2020 and beyond. We look forward to receiving many applications from across the globe.
