New Year’s Greetings
Best wishes for a happy and prosperous new year.
We are still under an unpredictable situation of Covid-19. However, on this new year’s joyous occasion, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all for your understanding and support of the Association for Corporate Support of the Arts.
Although the pandemic still continues, we experienced the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, last year. Through widespread of vaccination, we have been starting to get back our normal, everyday lives that we had before. We express our hearty respect for all effort to continue mecenat activities and for all people, such as corporate staffs, artists, and arts and culture organizations.
Due to Covid-19, our society is changing dramatically by spread of remote work and online meeting. Also, all stakeholders, including us, are required to effort to resolve social issues related to SDGs in order to realize a sustainable society.
Continuing activities of corporate mecenat with effort in the global changes is more important than we think as long as we aim to create stable society. On the other hand, society needs more innovative ideas and creativity brought by art and culture. Corporate mecenat will be expected further development reflecting on times.
We will continue to work together with our member companies and organizations to solve social issues and create new values through arts and culture, and contribute to the realization of a society that enriches heart and creativity.
We very much appreciate and look forward to your continued support, and extend our wishes for a happy and prosperous new year.
President, Association for Corporate Support of the Arts
