Implementation of citizen-driven workshops
Citizens and artists collaborate to develop projects based on local culture, historical background and the characteristics of local natural assets. We hold workshops in which participants think about creative expression itself, and carry out research on places that become activity hubs.

Programs that visualize results

We convey and archive our projects through newsletters and brochures/pamphlets presenting aspects of what we do.

Programs in cooperation with schools

This is a program of expressive workshops with artists in city preschools and elementary schools. Implemented in collaboration with city education institutions together with artists and a staff made up of citizens, these workshops run on themes tailored to the individuality of the children and the issues of the particular school.

Human resources development program

Our programs act as training grounds for citizens from a variety of different backgrounds, as they repeatedly learn and put their learning into practice, sharing their diverse experiences as they go. We provide working spaces and opportunities for citizen staff members and interns, and also carry out guest-accompanied workshops for improving skills, and courses for participants to mull over the meaning and significance of our activities.
