Beyond Invisible Borders is an art project where we will reflect on “invisible borders/walls” based on the hypothesis that there are many invisible walls / obstacles for many foreign residents and people with international backgrounds in Tokyo. Its purpose is to create a community, where residents in Tokyo - whether Japanese or foreign - can meet on a daily basis, while exploring these invisible borders faced by Tokyo residents (foreign residents in particular) and the problems caused by them.
We feel that, when people from various countries with different identities try to create something together, it results in them communicating with each individual with more respect regardless of their nationalities or cultural backgrounds. Our activities aim to rear these soft and flexible relationships within this group of individuals. We believe that these activities will give us experience and knowledge that will help us obtain the freedom and realization that are necessary for our co-existence in the future.
Details of our 2021 fiscal year programming can be found on our official notes.
