What we do

Art Support Tohoku-Tokyo

Tokyo Metropolitan Government initiative using the medium of arts and culture to support disaster-afflicted areas

We implement artistic programs in communities affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, in collaboration with local groups. Launched as part of “Tokyo Emergency Measures 2011,” this project is co-organized by Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Working with local art NPOs and coordinators, we support the reconstruction of a diverse range of cultural environments in the region. Moreover, to rebuild these disaster-stricken communities, we conduct artistic programs with an emphasis on the process of communication with people from a variety of fields, as well as developing mechanisms to support their implementation.
