In this program, social welfare facilities and communities plan participatory activities together with artists. Added to the sites original functions of various places is the role of an open cultural facility where local residents can gather, creating a setting for the day-to-day implementation of TURN.
TURN LAND (Tanashi)
This program uses a plot belonging to the Institute for Sustainable Agro-ecosystem Services (Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Science, University of Tokyo) as a “third place” where artists, members of partner facilities, people requiring social support, local residents and others can gather and put TURN projects into practice.
The implementation of highly inventive programs combining agriculture and art helps build relationships between different people and provides new platforms for diversity where a variety of people gather and interact.
TURN Operation Headquarters
This facility functions as an office centering on NPO activities. It also acts as an information transmission hub hosting research groups and training programs, with the aim of producing ample support personnel to assist with TURN operations.
