BROKEN 〜傷ついた世界〜

How do the arts open our eyes to the brokenness of the world around us and in us? How do the arts help us to wrestle with these problems? What is the purpose and power of art in society? These are some of the topics that will be explored through speaker presentations, music performances, dance, drama, short films, gallery exhibits, small group discussions, and more!

Performance Parties

Every two to three months, we host a performing party for professionals and students in Tokyo as a way to encourage and love the artist community. While informally connecting with other artists and sharing a meal together, we share our craft. In our professional lives, there is little opportunity to play a piece just for fun or share what inspired a certain painting or share the background behind the making of a film. Besides receiving creative inspiration from others, it is also a time to share about upcoming events and invite people to come. These events are among the most fun of all of the events of Community Arts Tokyo.

Gospel choirs are a great way to meet friends and have fun singing together. Outside guests frequently visit to lead workshops, and every couple of years “Gospel Origin” trips take us to the roots of black gospel music in the Mississippi Delta between Memphis, Tennessee and Jackson, Mississippi.

We host concerts and lectures in concert halls, event spaces, cafes, art galleries, and homes across across Tokyo and the rest of Japan.
