POWER TO THE PEOPLE is an art exhibit that examines various aspects of POWER and aims to draw public attention to it on an ongoing basis. Consisting of a variety of medium as photography, video, painting, design and music, the exhibit visualizes POWER representing unique perspectives of each participating artist.

An accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant occurred after the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011 forced us to review the current energy resources in the world. The search for new generating systems such as solar, wind and geothermal has become active, and the past mainstream power resources like coal have been re-evaluated.

Inspiring people in EM-POWER, transporting goods with HORSE-POWER, the word POWER has a meaning of moving things forward. It also means authority and its whereabouts has put the world through drastic changes in history.


Thinking and leveraging those POWER Now, leaving children of the future a better place is no doubt our social responsibility.
