Created in 2008, Designing Artists Academy (DAA) is an annual summer arts camp in Tokyo that offers kids living in children’s homes (orphanages) a unique opportunity to experience different forms of art taught by professional artists from all over the world. Since the first camp back in 2009, our goals for the annual arts program have remained the same: encourage kids to think freely, discover new interests, and foster potential through mentoring. These goals are kept in clear focus through photography, painting, illustration, fashion design, craftwork, dance and music - each workshop planting seeds of hope for a brighter future. We are always looking for volunteer artists, camp counselors and general support staff. Next year will be our 10th anniversary of the camp. We have already commenced preparations, so if you would like to be involved in our camp for 2019, please contact
