ART CAMP TANGO is an art project organized by artists and volunteers from the local community of Kyotango city. ACT aims to create a platform for diversity, different values and contemporary artistic expression that cultivates openness in our society. The project was launched in 2013 in collaboration with ‘soundpocket’, a Hong Kong based art and charitable organization, and it holds various events including an artist’s residency, art presentations, performances, research projects, workshops and gatherings, to promote an artistic experience within the sights and sounds of the natural environment of the Tango region.
ACT focuses on artistic expression ‘through sound or in relation to sound’ and invites artists engaged with the phenomenon of sound, space, the environment and the body, regardless of their artistic genres. In order to achieve its goal, ACT provides opportunities for the artists to research within the natural environment and local community of Tango, and then to share their experience with both a local and international audience, and to contribute to diversity and inclusion for sustainable community development.
