The Center of Creative Inheritance for the Future passes on to the next generations various artistic resources, both analog and digital, and including techniques as well as practical and tacit knowledge. Opening the archives to the public, we aim to promote new expression and research that leads to a society in which the future of the arts is created together.
Creative and Circulative Archive
We will serve as a permanent archival base (hub) within the Tokyo University of the Arts, building a co-creation network with art universities, research institutions, artists and researchers worldwide as well as the local community, creating a system that will sustainably generate new projects, artistic productions, and collaborative research stemming from the expressions of the past.

“Cultivating towards the future”
Our symbol was formed by disassembling and reconstructing the kanji characters for “future” (未来). The way the word “future” changes form represents our philosophy, to support new expressions while leveraging what is already present, and always accepting changes.
