We are accepting staffs !

Toride Art Project (TAP)started in 1999 and since then the management and the planning has been in the hands of three contributors: Citizens, Toride City Government and Tokyo University of the Arts. TAP supports young artists to develop their works,and provides the opportunities for citizens to get close to art within their daily life. Through these programs, the project has been actively contributing to the city to develop as a cultural place.
In 2008, TAP opens biannual competition for art-work proposals from all over Japan. The selected artists will stay at Toride Ino Apartment Complex to realize their plan and communicate with the residents. Their works will be installed in various places in the city as well as the Apartment area in November.
