Due to the global pandemic of coronavirus, many cities were locked down, and Japan was also one of them that faced difficulties. Wishing that people would be able to resume arts and cultural activities with greater vitality and would even be in full bloom after the crisis, the implementation of “Financial Support for Online Activities #KeepgoingTOGETHER” arose to support online arts and cultural activities. 56 activities were delivered in April until June through this program. There were a variety of activities: publication of online archives, live streaming concerts, digital exhibitions, short film screenings, etc.
EU-Japan Fest Japan Committee is an NGO based in Tokyo supporting Japan-related activities delivered within the annual European Capitals of Culture (ECoC).
