To support both diverse creative activities that help to enhance Tokyo’s appeal as a city and the people who lead those activities, we offer grants to Tokyo-based artists and arts organizations to cover part of the cost of their activities. The grant covers a diverse range of creative fields, including performing arts such as theater, music, dance and traditional performing arts, visual arts such as painting, sculpture, and video art, and innovative new creative endeavors for which no genre yet exists.
Through the Category I [Single Year] grants, we provide support for performances, exhibitions, art projects, and other creative activities in Tokyo, as well as supporting international artistic exchange activities undertaken within Tokyo or overseas.
Through the Category II [Long Term] grants, we encourage creative activities by supporting not only the presentation of works, but also the process of creating them. In addition, we provide two or three years of financial support to assist arts organizations in stepping up their activities to the next level.
Through the Category III [Creative Environment] grants, we provide up to three years of financial assistance for broader-perspective activities covering the field as a whole and tackling challenges in the artistic and creative environment.
