What we do

Creation Programs

We carry out programs in cooperation with artistic and cultural organizations and arts NPOs. This program aims to foster the involvement of individuals in art and culture by forming hubs for cultural creation across the city and providing children and young people with opportunities to take part in creative experiences, as well as organizing festivals in a wide range of fields, including traditional culture, theater, music, art, and film, in order to broaden Tokyo’s culture and disseminate it to the world.

Forming Hubs for Cultural Creation (Tokyo Artpoint Project)

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.
