実施報告書・概要 (Summary of Final Report)


We strive to eliminate educational inequality among children through this collaborative project between 653 Art Firm and Koganecho Area Management Center, NPOs based in Cheongju, Korea and Yokohama, Japan, respectively. As part of this initiative, we established "BASE", an everyday gathering space for children, and produced/presented public art created in collaboration by Japanese/Korean artists and children. We found that children in Cheongju and Koganecho face different environments. We learned it is important to not only apply standard methodologies and past experiences, but to also leverage the character and creativity of children, who deviate from such accepted practices, to harness the creativity of art to engage with the children and provide a learning space. When we leverage the issues learned from these relationships to succeeding projects, we can finally contribute to the creation of a space that fosters learning and that is eye-level with children.
