Preserving and handing down culture - a new mode of communication
Since its founding, TERRADA has focused on preservation and storage. In recent years, we have pursued a deeper concept of "storage," moving beyond an emphasis on tangible things to embrace the preservation and handing down of intangible culture and tradition itself.
Through our art promotion business, we set the stage for new forms of cultural creation by cultivating the legacy of traditional techniques and materials, providing support for emerging artists, and managing art galleries and studios.
