From 10th to 18th February 2017, British Council and Creative Scotland organised a visit to Japan bringing a delegation of producers and facilitators from eight Scottish performing arts organisations to refresh and foster existing and new connections between Scotland and Japan.
The Partnership between British Council and Creative Scotland aims to catalyse relationships which can take a long-term approach and provide a framework seeking to build on existing collaborations, providing scope for new opportunities between Scottish and Japanese artists, arts professionals and arts organisations; where collaborations can flourish and sustainable networks are formed.
During their visit the delegation also took part in TPAM (Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama) and engaged in discussions and networking with Japanese performing arts professionals.
