What we do

Artist Collective Fuchu [ACF]

This project centered on Fuchu City and the surrounding region aims to use all forms of expression in artistic activities to make the city a comfortable and rewarding place for artists to live in and, by extension, one where artistic activities by local citizens thrive as well, ensuring that Fuchu becomes a place everyone can express themselves freely.

Events Information

Community Salon project

Artist 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”
