The "TOKYO Gundam Project 2018" aims at revitalizing the Rikai area and develop global human resources in Tokyo by collaborating with the Tokyo University of the Arts, and create a new program to pair children with disabilities with university students to develop new opportunities together.
In this program, the art students and children with disabilities use gunpla as a motif to collaborate together on art works, the finished works will be displayed at the "Geidai Arts Special, Arts with the Disabled" exhibition by the Tokyo University of the Arts.
As part of this program, on August 25, 2018 (Sat) university students and children attended a workshop using gunpla as a motif. They also visited the gunpla facility "GUNDAM BASE TOKYO" and the life-sized unicorn gundam.
"Geidai Arts Special, Arts with the Disabled" will be held December 1-2, 2018 (Sat.-Sun.) at the Tokyo University of the Arts Rehearsal Hall. Let's go check out these unprecedented gunpla artworks created through a collaboration of gunpla made by children with disabilities with Tokyo University of the Arts student artworks.
