TOKYO MIDTOWN and ARS ELECTRONICA, an international creative organization based in Linz, Austria, have been implementing joint projects since 2017.
In collaboration with ARS ELECTRONICA, TOKYO MIDTOWN aims to become a place where people are inspired by a wide variety of ideas and innovations that will help shape a more prosperous and sustainable society in the future.
Through the collaborative project "SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE," we work with artists and participants on various initiatives to think about the future of society.
This school is "a new place to think about the future that is not taught in schools through design and art."
In the "SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE -ONLINE LABORATORY-," we provide various information from the past activities of the "SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE" to ideas that will shape the future of society.
