Nishio, who worked on the main program in 2014 and the downtown program in 2019 under the theme of “clothing and communication,” will further learn from the surrounding community and present a “shared space” created together with local residents, this time as a work of art.
The second of the 3 sites is Roppongi Middle School, which is steeped in history. We will explore with students the unique expressions that can only be found here.
