What we do

Creation Programs

This program is carried out in cooperation with groups such as art / cultural organizations and arts NPOs. We encourage people’s active involvement in the arts and culture by forming hubs for cultural creation throughout the city and providing children and young people with chances to experience the creative process. We also broaden and revitalize Tokyo’s culture and disseminate it throughout the world by organizing festivals and other events in diverse fields including traditional culture and performing arts, theater, music, visual art and film. We aim to carry on our cultural legacy beyond the year 2020 and create a Tokyo metropolis brimming with cultural attractions.
