Arts Initiative Tokyo (AIT)

Non profit arts group founded in 2001

MAD is the educational component of the non profit arts group Arts Initiative Tokyo (AIT), founded in 2001. MAD stands for Making Art Different, and was begin as a pilot program in 2001. At that time, we felt that there was a strong need for discursive spaces for contemporary art in Tokyo which were different to traditional art universities. Museums at that time did not offer much in the way of adult education for people with a serious interest in modern and contemporary art either. MAD began as a small initiative offering courses in curating contemporary art, introductions to modern and contemporary art and a course for practicing artists.
