What we do

Museum Start “i-Ueno”

This educational program for the 21st century aims to create new opportunities for learning through partnerships between museums, university, local government, and citizens. In this “Learning Design Project” facilitated by Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and Tokyo University of the Arts, nine cultural and educational facilities located around Ueno Park are working together to help children to make their “museum debut,” as well as creating an active learning environment in which children and adults can learn from one another.

Diversity Program

People ordinarily lead different lifestyles in different places. Children from diverse cultural backgrounds gather at museums to look at real works of art and share language. The Diversity program fosters hearts and minds that recognize and respect the individuality of the self who believes that everyone’s languages are equally important, and the individuality of others.
