We expand and disseminate creative arts and cultural activities and carry them into the future by holding festivals in wide-ranging fields including traditional culture and performing arts, music, visual art and film,
theater and dance, and by carrying out public participation / activity programs for children and young adults, as well as people from other countries. Moreover, we aim to carry on our cultural legacy beyond the year 2020 and create a Tokyo metropolis brimming with cultural attractions.
Tokyo Artpoint Project is an initiative which creates myriad “art points” by implementing art projects in
partnership with NPOs fulfilling key roles in their local communities. Designed to fit seamlessly into the
community’s daily life, the art projects connect areas, people and activities. Our aim is to create and
communicate Tokyo’s diverse appeal, while cultivating the NPOs which lead the projects and laying the
foundations 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.
