Art experience childcare the Art Support Jidokan

by Junnosuke Tada

  • Childcare program offering art-related experiences

Schedule:Friday, Oct. 22 – Sunday, Oct. 24

Place:Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre


Continue to enjoy art while raising children! Children enjoy art too! Childcare + Art = Art Support Children's Center!

This childcare program offering art-related experiences combines art appreciation for parents raising children with hands-on experience of art for children. A project that transforms the concept of childcare, it dispels the negative image of childcare as a way for parents to guiltily enjoy me-time while children are "deposited" elsewhere , and makes participants want to take part and hand their children over to the program again. As well as enjoying the Tokyo Festival 2021 program, participants of Art Culture Magical Academy can enjoy movies, music, and museum-going.
