Arts Council Tokyo (Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture) is pleased to announce the finalized line-up of programs for FY2023.
■ New artistic and cultural creation, generating opportunities for participation and appreciation
Based on specialized knowledge and expertise accumulated to date, we aim to create an environment where anyone can enjoy arts and culture anytime, anywhere through cultural projects and the resources of metropolitan cultural facilities. Central to this aim are the following projects: Civic Creative Base Tokyo (CCBT), an activity base for people to demonstrate their creativity in the community through the use of digital technology; TOKYO Smart Culture Project, which will provide firsthand experiences of art appreciation in various forms using the latest technology – for example the digitization of cultural resources such as the collections owned by metropolitan cultural facilities and exhibitions/performances etc.; and Creative Well-being Tokyo which will work towards the expansion and improvement of environments allowing diverse people including the elderly, people with disabilities, infants and people with roots overseas to participate in cultural projects and create together.
■ Expansion of support for artistic and cultural activities in Tokyo and for those involved in them
To sustain and enhance creative activities for artists, we are setting up a support initiative, the Tokyo Artistic and Cultural Activities Support Center (provisional title) based on three key support mechanisms: a consultation service, programs providing support information, and courses/lectures. In addition, we will strengthen support artists and others in programs such as Improving the Creative Environment for Artists, which provides activity space for artists seeking places to engage in creative work, and Support for the Proposal and Creation by Young Artists (provisional title), programs that widen opportunities to young artists.
