“Marubi Art-Complex” is a program giving citizens a role in making the Museum a “town square”—a complex, cross-genre interaction of people, events, and things. Citizens having unique creative skills gather at the art museum for activities in four sections: Café, Market, Performance, and Workshop. In the first half of fiscal 2019, 53 groups are taking part.
The Café features catering vehicles and stalls selling food and beverages, while the Market features individual sales of originally-made items. Both sections put out shops in the Open Space on weekends and holidays. Workshops for making things and enjoying physical expression are held in the Project Room and Media Lab. Performances of music, drama, and dance are also offered in the Open Space. Workshop and Performance activities are held on the second Saturday and Sunday of each month.
