In 2020, the “normality” in the world has totally changed by the novel coronavirus pandemic. As a result of restrictions on our lifestyles in the time of Corona, there are so many people left without any access to Art more than ever.

While art museums and performing arts venues have been reopening their exhibitions and performances under the new normal operations, they also have resumed activities leading to social inclusion with trials and errors, including making the most of online interactions.

At this forum, we are going to examine the following through the case studies of the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo:

⁃ the mission of cultural institutions for the Post Corona Society

⁃ the tasks and hints to deliver art activities leading to social inclusion


[Japanese sign language and subtitling assistance provided]

During the meeting, Japanese sign language interpretation and automatic Japanese subtitles generated via UDTalk (communication application) will be provided. These assistances are available on both Zoom Meeting and YouTube live streaming.
