Comprehensive Project for Fostering Children through Culture and Arts – Touring Performance Project
Japan’s leading cultural and artistic organizations will perform at elementary and junior high schools to provide children with opportunities to appreciate excellent performing arts. The purpose of this project is to foster children’s ability to think and communicate, to nurture future artists, and to improve the public’s ability to appreciate the arts.
In the pre-workshop, the children will be instructed on how to perform and how to appreciate art. We will also try to have the children participate in the demonstrations as much as possible.
