In 2009, the first international ParaArt Exhibition with artworks from 16 countries & regions was held in Tokyo, Japan. Since then, the total number of about 700 artworks from all over the world were exhibited in Tokyo through four international ParaArt Exhibitions.
This exhibition aims at promoting the social inclusion of persons with disabilities through their art works. Considering such aim, the Japanese Red Cross Society has decided to give nominal support to the event. It would be great if you could disseminate the information of this event to the relevant people in your country through your National Society and encourage them to apply for the exhibition. For the details, please refer to the organization committee directly as attached.
As Tokyo Olympic & Paralympic Games are coming in 2020, we are planning to host a major international exhibition, 2020 International ParaArt TOKYO. In coming February 2019, Tokyo will host the international art exhibition, 2019 International ParaArt TOKYO as a pre-event of 2020 International ParaArt TOKYO. For the exhibition, we encourage the artists with disabilities around the world to apply. In particular, talented children with disabilities are welcome. In the exhibition, there also will be a contest to choose winners which will be selected by the panel of judges from various fields of arts.
