Arts Council Tokyo (Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture) is pleased to announce the finalized line-up of programs for FY2022.
■ Support for artistic and cultural activities in Tokyo and for those involved in them
In FY2021 we extended funding eligibility with our newly established support programs, the Startup Grant, and the Traditional Arts Practice Grant. In FY2022, in addition to the existing support programs, aiming for a city made vibrant and dynamic through arts and culture, we will provide financial support to projects that have positive ripple effects, and which involve the participation of multiple arts-related groups and organizations, for the purpose of generating opportunities for the creation and appreciation of arts and culture. With a wealth of programs, we will strengthen support for artistic and cultural activities in Tokyo and for those involved in them, in line with their purposes.
■ Delivering programs with an eye towards the Tokyo of the future
Arts Council Tokyo will roll out a series of programs representing the legacy of cultural program Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL, which was extended by a year due to the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. In FY2022 we aspire to develop new values with initiatives including the Creative Well-being Tokyo: TURN LAND Program, which aims to build a foundation to make wellbeing for people a reality.
We will run programs designed to create opportunities for more people to encounter arts and culture, and to enhance Tokyo’s attractions as a city through the power of arts and culture. These include traditional culture programs, large-scale festivals held in collaboration with local communities, hands-on and interactive programs, and three additional new programs under Tokyo Art Point Project.
