CTN cultivates and promotes creativity, collective wisdom, resilience, sustainability and equity across communities in Japan and the U.S. with an emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area. By designing and implementing arts and cultural programs, we achieve our vision through intercultural collaborations and dialogues, centering underrepresented voices and stories from the diverse peoples we serve.
We envision that people in diverse communities in both Japan and the U.S. will deepen their appreciation of and respect for all beings, discover their innate creativity and its transformative power, and increase their resilience and vitality through dialogues, collaborations, and engagement in creative activities.
