昨年のべ12万人の来場を数え、世界から大きな反響を呼んだ「DESIGNART TOKYO」は2017年から始まったデザイ ン&アートフェスティバル。世界中のインテリア、アート、ファッション、フードなどジャンルの垣根を超えた様々 なモノやコトが集結し、東京の街全体がミュージアムになるイベントです。

Supporting art through construction with ‘1% for Art’

This year, DESIGNART TOKYO presents ‘1% for Art’ as DESIGNART Feature project. Already taking place in the US, Europe, South Korea, and Taiwan, ‘1% for Art’ is a cultural program that supports the projects of designers and artists and the development of the creative industry by contributing 1% of construction fees to art. DESIGNART TOKYO is working to make ‘1% for Art’ a driving force behind Japan’s design and art scene, gathering signatures and support with the aim of making the project into law.

今年は、国内デザイナー、アーティストの新たな制作機会の創出やクリエイティブ産業の発展に繋げるため、既にア メリカやヨーロッパ、韓国、台湾など各国で実施されている「1% for Art」(建設費の1%をアートの費用に充てる 文化制度)をテーマにDESIGNART Featureを行います。この仕組みの法制化を目指し、普及を呼びかける為の署名 活動をあわせて実施して、日本のデザイン・アートシーンをドライブさせる革新的なプロジェクトが始動します。
