Group Meeting Hosts

Creative Well-being Tokyo’s Networking Program is recruiting group meeting hosts and booth exhibitors.

This program aims to help people obtain new information and expand networks by introducing previous activities and projects, and holding informal meetings on set themes as well as participating in discussions about the state of diversity and inclusion in regard to arts and culture. It provides opportunities for Japanese and international cultural institutions, healthcare and social welfare organizations, nonprofits, creatives, and the general public to meet, share know-how and insights about practices, and work toward future collaborations.

The group meetings provide a way for people to hold casual, open discussions on a particular theme. By introducing your project or facility, discussing diversity and inclusion in culture and the arts, and sharing various issues with peers during the one-hour slot, hosts and participants can enjoy fulfilling conversations and build relationships.

Use this opportunity to share and spread the word about your activities! (Applicants are allowed to apply for both booth exhibitors and group meetings.)
