Making use of a cluster of vacant houses on the island, we will operate the “Kuruto” hub to provide information and foster communication between people related to the island. By continuing to put into practice a framework for different generations on and outside Kozushima to engage with the island, we will make room for each of them, creating opportunities for encounters with diverse people and values.
Hub formation program: practices at the hub area Kuruto
In the “Namisuke” and “Mansaku” spaces of the Kuruto hub area, we will create an environment open to a wide variety of people.
Access: 998 Kouzushima-mura, Tokyo
10:00 – 16:00 every Thursday, Friday and Saturday
MANABU 18:00 – 21:00 every Wednesday
(subject to change)
Hub formation program: “Shima no niwa-biraki” island garden development project
We will cut the grass of gardens of vacant properties on the island and hold exhibitions and events there for limited times only. By visualizing the process of making the many empty houses on the island usable once more, the aim is to present the unlimited possibilities for “I-turn” newcomers or “U-turn” returnees from the city to make things happen on the island. In addition, we will continue to research and gather information on vacant properties capable of being regenerated/repurposed.
