What we do

TURN

With artist Katsuhiko Hibino as director, the art project TURN creates artistic expression in the form of interaction through encounters between diverse people, transcending differences in background and customs, including disability, age, gender, nationality, and living environment. In the TURN Interactive Program, artists make repeated visits to spend time with welfare facility users and people requiring social support, in order to interact and undertake collaborative activities with them. TURN LAND, meanwhile, creates community venues for TURN activities to be put into daily practice. TURN Meeting and TURN FES are held to spread the word more widely about the significance of these initiatives. 2020 will see this project mark the culmination of six years of creative activity that have been undertaken since TURN’s inception as a Leading Project and raise the curtain on the future with an even bigger TURN FES, which will take place at several venues in collaboration with artists from Japan and overseas, and a diverse array of facilities and organizations.
