Profile

【TodaysArt JAPAN】
It’s a group of producers to execute urban art projects in order to promote the attractiveness of Tokyo, using various media forms as “cutting-edge art”, such as music, architecture, dance and technology. It aims to generate various communities by placing cultural activities that haven’t been discussed in the realm of art in Japan so far yet to be discussed, by building a platform in the field of club culture in a broad sense, which is comparable to local art/music festivals that take place throughout Japan in recent years.
