Open Call Support Projects “&21”
Open Call Support Projects “&21” is a program held in Theater 21 aimed at revitalizing regional culture by means of stage arts such as drama, dance, performance, music, and film. Through public recruiting, projects rich in creativity and artistry, conducive of regional exchange and fostering the next generation, are selected.
As a program co-organized with the Museum, the selected projects receive production assistance such as reduced fees for using facilities. They also receive promotional support and support in communicating with the region, such as through informal gatherings with host organizations and like-minded creators in the regional community.
As a result of an annual jury selection process, three projects were chosen in 2016, two in 2017, five in 2018, and four in 2019. All were presented in Theater 21.
For fiscal 2020, public recruiting was held from May 1 to 31 and three projects were selected.
