We have provided a financial aid for performances & exhibitions to the culturally disadvantaged people such as the aged (65 or older) and children & adolescents (under 24).
Also we have offered diverse art & cultural programs to the locals and those who haven’t been able to enjoy cultural excitements while accelerating the operation of local literature center through the spontaneous reinforcement of creative performances and distribution competencies.

Art Journey with close neighbors encouraging active participationThe cultural tour programs including Art Journey with close neighbors and Island & Mountain Program developed in consideration of rural areas are highly preferred programs. , The performances are given via two-way communication with the audiences who haven’t had cultural experiences much, increasing their intimacy and commitments.
This program is operated, considering community schedules and living conditions such as farming season, community events and agricultural festivals. To discover(nurture) the locals’ cultural desire, there were sufficient communications with them.
Through sufficient communications with the locals, we nurture their cultural aspirations. In this program, the locals choose the best program on their own and became the key players through sharing of their experiences and feelings in addition to performances.
As a custom-made package service (performance + exhibition + art & cultural experience) program which includes a small festival at an easy-access place for the locals, the program increases synergy effects in virtuous cycle by encouraging the locals to participate in the cultural performances in person.
