ABOUTAbout AICHI⇆ONLINE

AICHI⇆ONLINE is an online art project encompassing a wide genre, including film, contemporary art, literature, manga, and music.

The project was developed amid a critical situation in which the spread of the novel coronavirus nearly blew out the light of culture and art. With artists in the field of culture and art and the people with various professional skills to support artists’ creation, we produced nine new projects and published them virtually through our website.

Even in the midst of this ever-changing disaster, we hope that the viewers enjoy each artist’s activities on our platform AICHI⇆ONLINE, which keeps the light of “creation” burning and relays it to tomorrow.
