We enhance and develop artistic and cultural activities by organizing festivals in a wide range of fields including traditional performance and culture, theater, dance, music, visual art, and film, and by carrying out public programs for children, young adults, and people from overseas.
The Tokyo Artpoint Project is an initiative that creates numerous “art points” via art projects undertaken in partnership with NPOs that play a key role in their local communities. Designed to fit seamlessly into the everyday life of the community, these art projects connect people, towns, and activities in Tokyo. Our ambition is to create and communicate aspects of Tokyo‘s diverse allure, while nurturing the NPOs that will lead the projects and putting in place the infrastructure for these activities.
We coordinate a Tokyo Metropolitan Government initiative to support areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, through arts and culture. The project aims to support the recovery of vibrant cultural environments in affected communities by implementing arts programs in partnership with local arts NPOs and other organizations.
Carrying out the cultural projects on the ground, when the eyes of the world are upon the Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympics, will tie into later development of the domestic Cultural Program.
