Shibuya-ku Ward (Tokyo) and NIKE try to start converting Miyashita Park into “NIKE Park”. For this construction, they decided the half of park will be sealed off with the fences on March 16th and 17th.
What are they talking about? We have never accepted NIKE use the park for their business in the park, public area! Miyashita Park is not only for NIKE’s consumers, but OURS!
Thereupon, various artists are going to stay at Miyashita Park and execute their works (= Artist in Residence, A・I・R) from this spring. Through the many projects such as exhibition, symposium, music performance, movie show, workshop and cafe, we will think about what Living, Playing, Life, Whereabouts, Exclusion, Discrimination, Violence etc. are, and we do PARK.
If you cannot come to Miyashita Park although you are interested in our project, please check the A・I・R’s information this blog!
