What we do

Artist Collective Fuchu [ACF]

The aim of this art project is to loosen the grip of the unconscious “frames” in people’s everyday lives through art and creative expression, and form a network built with a new framework. Through the creation of a low-key network of people involved in art and centered in Fuchu City, the aim is to form an artist-friendly community that consequently encourages/enables artistic expression in everyone who lives there.

Events Information

Community Salon project

Artists Collective Fuchu (ACF) holds a community salon where participants mull approaches to organizational management and procedure for the collective’s activities, with a view to exploring and creating a modus operandi unique to ACF. By involving not just ACF office staff but many different people associated with the collective, the aim is to build a foundation based on individual voluntary activity and mutual respect for each other’s activities.

Media programs

Based on a network cultivated through activities thus far, the collective creates media channels through which to introduce artists and creative activities in Fuchu City. The belief is that connecting and reconnecting people through media-based programs will not only communicate ACF’s activities but provide a platform for finding human resources to get involved in the Community Salon.

Artist Collective Fuchu presents “Sound Cruise”
