The project aims at sustaining and establishing network resources that link citizens, artists and Artpoints, brought up in the Bokuto area (northern part of Sumida City in eastern Tokyo) through the Bokuto Machimise programs which had been carried out until 2012. The project will build an art platform by creating maps that transmit information about various activities in the area.
