The story behind EGAKU
EGAKU is a creative development program which retraces the roots of art as a tool for learning. The artist Kunihiko YAZAWA came up with the Program in response to his experiences teaching at art school in Japan where he encountered students' lack of creative confidence and habit of constantly searching for the 'right answer'. Initially run for children in 2002, from 2004 onwards the program extended its reach to adults, primarily business professionals. Regular sessions for business professionals at 92art Studio and corporate programs were launched in 2008. 'EGAKU for Kids and Youth' was created for children and youth from elementary school through to university graduate students and a number of collaborations with schools, corporates, and other organizations were also launched.
Over the past few years EGAKU has spread by word of mouth amongst curious minds and forward-thinking business professionals, entrepreneurs, consultants and human resource professionals. As of 2015 over 10,000 people have participated in EGAKU.
EGAKU has been deployed by over 100 major corporations and other organizations.
