The Creative Art Executive Committee implements creation and facilitation workshops with disabled people as the Diversity through the Arts Project.
In creative workshops, touch-based art and design activities were offered to visually-impaired and sighted participants, with the aim of discovering and nurturing new talent from amongst people with disabilities. Painting workshops were open all participants, from young children to adults and people with disabilities. The group also conducted training for facilitators to encourage people with disabilities to participate in art-related activities. During the final week of the workshops, works were exhibited in the 2nd floor gallery of the venue.


Creative Art Executive Committee
Creative Arts Executive Committee was founded in May 1990 aiming to support disabled people expressing themselves in a form of arts and to explore new forms of artistic expressions. The committee encourages not only disabled people, but also people of different age, gender, and ethnic to take part in artistic activities and strives for paving a way to create a new style for the society to have greater flexibility and tolerance. In addition to providing participatory and interactive activities and producing arts-related projects in local communities, the committee established Integrated Dance Company, Kyo with an aim of bringing innovation in the dance expression through the company dancers’ various physiques, each of which have an individual significance. The committee’s efforts to integrate the society and the arts have attracted much attention.
