We provide financial support to artistic and cultural organizations with the ability to represent Tokyo’s arts and culture nationally and internationally.
This project is implemented in partnership with artistic and cultural groups and art-focused nonprofit organizations. By forming culture creation hubs and providing hands-on, interactive programs for children and young people, among others, we will develop an environment in which as many people as possible can independently get involved in creative activities in the field of culture and the arts. In addition, we will create new Tokyo cultures and promote them worldwide through festivals in a wide range of fields, including traditional culture and performing arts, music, fine art and film, and theater. To ensure that the cultural legacy is sustained beyond 2020, we aim to turn Tokyo into a metropolis brimming with cultural appeal.
We foster diverse future leaders who will drive art and culture in Tokyo.
We network with international artistic and cultural organizations and institutions, developing various collaborative programs and creating opportunities to improve Tokyo’s cultural presence as an international city.
We provide think-tank functions through a range of survey and research activities and by promoting Tokyo’s artistic and cultural attractions through various media.
