Practical study in which “navigators” and participants learn about creating the core of a project together
If you could “create” something in Tokyo, what would it be?
That is the question we pose to five “navigators,” who will each form a team and attempt to create the core of a project through a process of research and experimentation. From September through March over approximately 100 hours, we will hold multiple project “Study” sessions (involving study, investigation, research and experimentation).
“Navigators” comprise people in creative roles with different interests and attributes like artists, directors and dramaturgs, who will decide on a theme within their relationship with the Tokyo area. The “navigators” will suggest the appropriate personnel needed to implement the Study program, and put a team together.
– Learning support
An Arts Council Tokyo program officer with experience running art projects will be on hand as Study manager to support the program, leveraging knowhow accumulated on the Tokyo Artpoint Project in cooperation with art-related NPOs in the city.
– A focus on dialog
We emphasize dialog as a way to build individual awareness, and train participants’ thinking towards creation of new things and ideas.
– Team-building for “creating”
Artists working on project front lines, specialists and participants come together to work under one theme, share “creating” time and exchange words to produce a community for mutual learning.
– Study room opening
ROOM 302 (3331 Arts Chiyoda 3F, 302 / 6-11-14 Sotokanda Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) will be made available to participants as a study room for preparation and review activities such as meetings, reading, and research.
