ARTLOGUE is an arts tech company that brings innovation to the art industry through the power of technology.

◯ Art has the power to shine a light on people and things that are usually hard to see and show us.

The stories we usually see are special events about special people.

However, the truth is that if there are 100 people, there will be 100 different stories, all different and all special. At ARTLOGUE, we would like to deliver wonderful stories that are usually overlooked through art.

◯ Art allows us to acquire the imagination to care for others and the creativity to overcome difficult problems.

The world has many problems such as poverty, hunger, environmental problems, war and terrorism. 

Many of these social issues are man-made disasters. In other words, in order to create a better society, people must change. 

If through art we can acquire the imagination to care for others and the creativity to overcome difficult problems, people will surely change and we will have a better society in the future.

We at ARTLOGUE believe in the power of art.

General Incorporated Association WORLD ART DIALOGUE 

We innovate with art and innovate society with art.

The CURATORSTV project, the predecessor of ARTLOGUE, was established in 2010 as part of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's global COE program, ``Towards Social Inclusion and Cultural Creation'', which aims to create an internationally outstanding research center at Osaka City University Urban Research Plaza. It began as part of the city's "restructuring of the city." After two years of preparation and one year of implementation, we established the general incorporated association WORLD ART DIALOGUE (ARTLOGUE) in April 2013.

From a university research project to a period of social experimentation as a general incorporated association, we have strived to realize the philosophy that we have consistently advocated: ``Improve accessibility and understanding of art'' and ``Aim to solve social issues through art.'' , on July 7, 2017, we established a social art company, ARTLOGUE Co., Ltd.

Amid economic recession, the leisure market has shrunk significantly, tax revenues have declined, and Japanese people have less time to appreciate art, and the pressure to reduce art is increasing day by day. However, on the other hand, data has been released showing that latent needs for art are increasing, and it is clear that the art industry is not grasping these needs. We at ARTLOGUE are developing new services using IT and other technologies in order to understand the needs for art, give as many citizens as possible the opportunity to encounter art, and create opportunities to enjoy art. I'm here.

From now on, ARTLOGUE will create a fertile economic zone called "ARTS ECONOMICS" that will support Japan's future by transcending the boundaries of cultural and artistic resources and business. I also hope to be able to help establish a nation built on culture and the arts by working together with the strengthening of cultural administration and the realization of the Ministry of Culture.

The ``ManiA (Manifest for Arts)'' project says, ``Despite being a parliamentary democracy, the fact that it's not even included in the manifesto, let alone an issue in the election, means that it's being looked down upon.'' Based on our awareness of the issue of ``Is this true?'', we have asked politicians and election candidates about their activities and visions for culture and the arts in a ``Cultural and Arts Manifesto,'' which is published on the website.
