Tobira Project

※What is the Tobira Project?
The Tobira Project is a social design project of the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum aimed at fostering community through art. The Tobira Project began in 2012 as a cooperative endeavor of the Museum and Tokyo University of the Arts. Art communicators – called “Tobira” – are widely selected from the general public each year. The Tobira work mainly within museums as members of the Tobira Project team, which also consists of museum curators, university faculty, and experts who are at the forefront of their respective fields. The project aims to connect people with people, people with art, and people with spaces by communicating carefully to all of the types of individuals who visit Ueno Park museums.
