Creative Art Executive Committee
Established in May 1990 to help people with disabilities to express themselves through art and to use this as the starting point for exploring new artistic possibilities. It subsequently began running activities that also included people other than those with disabilities, pursuing new approaches to society by involving a diverse range of people in artistic activities, irrespective of differences in age, gender, or ethnicity. In June 2014, as well as its hands-on activities and art projects, the Committee founded the Integrated Dance Company-Kyo to pioneer new forms of expression through dance, using diverse physiques. It is coming under the spotlight as an initiative that integrates society with art.
