The works and other artistic expressions produced by people with disabilities embody a rich world of creation.
However, it is not unusual for these works to be lost or disappear without receiving proper recognition. In addition, there is a lack of information regarding the creative activities that are being undertaken at individual welfare facilities and artists’ homes.
In light of these circumstances, we have assembled this digital archive of creative expressions by people with disabilities who are residents of Kyoto Prefecture with the aim of recording, preserving, compiling a database, exhibiting, marketing, and merchandising these works, and coordinating projects with companies and other organizations. Through this website, we hope to bring more attention to these expressions and to increase the opportunities to put the works to practical use.
