Arts Council Tokyo (Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture) organizes forums looking at approaches to the arts and culture of Tokyo as a world city.
In this forum, we focus on the producers and coordinators who support artists and performers in the environment that surrounds the fields of art, theater and animation. How do they encourage and present the talents of creators and artists through promotion, management, marketing, etc.? We will also hear about connoisseurship and other skills that enable the discovery of new talent.
In recent years, there has been much discussion about the “value” of arts and culture; this is partly attributable to the fact that the continuance of arts and culture-generating activities is under threat as the fabric of society undergoes drastic change in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, something which has resulted in national and local governments stepping up relief measures. At the same time this situation has called into question more than ever the meaning of support for arts and culture, and there is more interest in the value of arts and culture and its relationship to people’s lives. However, “value” in terms of arts and culture is complex, and changes depending on the situation and the values we are talking about. Sometimes it can be difficult to get a fair evaluation from a third party.
In order to continue long term artistic and cultural activities and set further outlooks and objectives, the formulation of a strategic plan clarifies the outcomes of activities and projects and allows us to set out a variety of values. In this forum, guests in a position to discover and nurture value in each expressive field give us their real and practical views from the frontlines.
