To Think about the Future of Art Centers (Japanese only)
Many art centers have been established throughout Japan. Art centers are multi-cultural institutions, whose functions differ from museums. There are various art centers in the Kansai region; the Kobe Art Village Center (opened in 1996), Kyoto Art Center (opened in 2000), and Enokojima Art, Culture and Creative Center, Osaka Prefecture/enoco (opened in 2012). Takarazuka Arts Center which will be open in Hyogo Prefecture in April 2020, will be added to the list. We will invite organizers of these art centers to come together and hold a symposium to discuss ideals and dreams for the future art centers.
