Community Engagement Program: “Art Summer Camp 2018 for under 22”
* Booked Out
#1-#3 Conducted in Japannese
#4, #5 Japanese-English consecutive interpretation available
Over the years Mori Building and the Mori Art Museum have worked with artists from around the world to stage and run numerous events within the exhibitions or in the local community. This summer sees the launch of a new program titled “Art Summer Camp,” targeting youths aged fifteen to twenty-two, and giving them the opportunity to discuss “contemporary art” with artists, in a different environment to the usual school format of “teacher” and “taught.” By viewing works on display and sharing these works in their own words with others, participants will gain a greater understanding of what it means to share things, from what’s happening right now at home or school, to long-ago historical events, and social, political and cultural happenings in the wider world. Come along, spend time and converse with artists and curators in person, and discover just how exciting “contemporary art” can be!
