[Cooperation Organization] TORIDE CITY URBAN DEVELOPMENT THROUGH WALLS Executive Committee, a part of the DEVELOPMENT OF A CITY WITH ART Propulsion Project is a group of artists working in Toride city who came together to work on this project. Continued by the “Toride International Wall Competition” starting from 2013, this “TORIDE INTERNATIONAL VIDEO PROJECTION CONTEST 2014” attempts to expand the meaning and approach towards walls by projecting video works on a wall at the station’s passageway where people pass through everyday and discover the link between a public space and video work. Along with that we aim to meet more artists in various genres and involve their art to the city and disseminate Toride city to the world.
