Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS) is an art center that was established with the aim to generate and promote new forms of culture in the heart of Tokyo.
TWS Hongo supports and nurtures emerging artists. Providing a series of stepwise, continuous programs, it aims to raise the profiles of young artists and expand their activities to that of internationally active artists. TWS Hongo is also a place for new experimental projects and works.
TWS Shibuya functions as a hub for an international cultural network established to collaborate with cultural institutions in Japan and abroad, and to act as a platform for exchange and creative dialogue ranging from aspiring new talents to contemporary society.
TWS Aoyama: Creator-in-Residence is a base for creative production, dialogue, and education.
Together, the three TWS venues make up a central stage for a “Global Creative City Tokyo.”
