February 11, 2021 Ikebukuro PARCO will open an artist-participation community atelier space "ARTIE'S PARCO" as an incubation project for talented young artists who are forced to limit their activities due to the influence of Corona. It will open on the 7th floor of the main building on Sundays (Thursday / holiday).
PARCO has been working on discovering and supporting (= incubation) new talents since its founding, and has supported the challenges for new talents who will lead the next generation to play an active role on the world stage.
With the spread of the new coronavirus infection, we will open a part of the commercial space as a "community atelier space for artists" to artists who are losing "a place for expression and communication".
"ARTIE'S PARCO" promotes the formation of a new community between artists and customers who come to the store, and the transmission of new art culture, through free creative activities by artists.
1. About ARTIE'S PARCO
ARTIE'S PARCO is a community atelier space where participating artists can communicate with each other and with customers through free creative activities.
ARTIE'S is a coined word consisting of "ART", "TIE", and "us", and is an artist who has been forced to restrict interaction and activities with humans due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection. For the purpose of supporting ourselves, we will open it as a "place for creative activities and communication" as well as exhibition and sales.
As an atelier (workplace), participating artists will be free to engage in creative activities, from art production to exhibitions, sales, live painting and other events, to interaction between artists and customers.
