Japan Foundation through Performing Arts Japan

Established in 1972, the Japan Foundation is Japan‘s principal agency for international cultural relations. Through its headquarters in Tokyo and 21 overseas offices, the Japan Foundation conducts a wide range of programs concerning arts and cultural exchange, Japanese language education, Japanese studies and intellectual exchange. Japan Foundation started its Performing Arts Japan (PAJ) program for Europe in 2006 to revitalize and facilitate exchange between leading artists in Europe and Japan. In 2006 and 2007, PAJ Europe funded 21 projects for a total amount of approximately 315,000 euros. In 2008, 11 projects were funded by PAJ Europe.
