What we do

Artist Collective Fuchu [ACF]

This project centering on Fuchu City aims to use expressions in familiar forms and with an everyday outlook to make Fuchu a place where everyone can freely express themselves. Attracting not just artists but participants of diverse occupations and ages, ACF aims to create a forum for individuals to communicate their thoughts and feelings to each other, and to provide an environment enabling respect for each other’s differences.

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.
