EYES for Embracing Diversity: Multicultural Coexistence and Art (hereafter referred to as the EYES project) is a 13-day study program designed to understand the Multicultural Coexistence among Asian countries. Participants of the EYES project (hereafter referred as the EYES fellows) are mid-career leaders who facilitate multicultural diversity in their respective countries in Asia.

The EYES project 2019 will take place in the Philippines and Japan and giving the EYES fellows various opportunities to understand multicultural coexistence in both countries. The project will also hold workshops utilizing artistic methods in order to raise public awareness of diversity.

Moreover, the EYES project aims to create a network among the fellows, and provide the fellows with an understanding of multicultural diversity resulting from the world phenomena of “human mobility” in both the Philippines (e.g. aspect of labour exports) and Japan (e.g. aspect of labour imports). After completion of the EYES project, The Foundation hopes that each fellow will be able to utilize their learnings from the project to take positive actions in their own society.
