What is “Art & Impact: Thinking about the world after the Expo with innovators”?


Through the "TEAM EXPO 2025" program/co-creation challenge, we will hold the world's largest "Osaka Kansai International Arts Festival" with the theme of social impact in 2025, when the Osaka-Kansai Expo will be held, and the "International Art City Osaka". Daisuke Suzuki, CEO of Art Rogue Co., Ltd., which is aiming to establish itself, will welcome guests who are active not only in art and creativity but also in various genres. Through the activities of the guests, we will think about the society we want to aim for after Expo 2025 and the possibilities of art. *This continuous talk program is based on the theme of the Osaka/Kansai Expo, "People's Living Lab (PLL, a laboratory for future society)," and a variety of practitioners and experts have been speaking from their respective perspectives since before the event. This is a program of EXPO PLL Talks, an online talk event held as a place to disseminate initiatives related to the theme both domestically and internationally and to create the Expo together, and will be held as part of "Study: Osaka Kansai International Arts Festival." Sponsored by: Japan Association for the 2025 World Exposition, Art Rogue Co., Ltd.
