Overview of the business

Kyoto City and the University Consortium Kyoto are implementing the "University Community Collaboration and Support Project (nickname: Learning Town Collaboration Project)" by granting support money to projects and projects in which universities, students, and the local community collaborate to develop Kyoto's city and revitalize the region.
It has been implemented since the 16th academic year with the aim of developing human resources by securing practical education and research opportunities for universities, and solving and revitalizing regional issues through the knowledge and vitality of students for the region, and this year is the 17th year.


★ What is the Cultural Framework?

In March 28, it was decided to completely relocate the Agency for Cultural Affairs to Kyoto. Taking this opportunity, we have established a "cultural framework" in the learning town collaboration project from FY29, and we are expanding activity expenses for creating and transmitting printed materials and videos in response to efforts to "disseminate" diverse cultures from Kyoto.

As for the judging, the contents of the project are examined in the same way for both the general and cultural frameworks, and only the cultural framework is examined from the viewpoint of the contribution of the student's "culture" to the community.

Projects that apply for the cultural framework may be selected in the general category.

Target business

For the purpose of solving local issues and revitalizing Kyoto City, projects that meet the following requirements (all of (1), (2) for the general quota and (1), (2), and (3) for the cultural framework) to be implemented in Kyoto City during the second fiscal year of Reiwa (from the date of adoption to the end of March of the following year) are eligible.
However, political activities, religious activities, activities to disseminate specific ideas, violent or destructive activities, for-profit enterprises, etc. are excluded.
* Projects that apply for the cultural framework may be adopted in the general category.
* Projects that apply for the general quota will not be adopted under the cultural framework.

【Common requirements for general and cultural frameworks】
(1) Projects in which universities and student groups and local communities (residents' organizations, civic action groups, businesses, etc., which mainly target the Kyoto City area) collaborate and collaborate as an organization or group, especially those in which students take the initiative in their activities.
* Administrative agencies may be included in the collaborating destination, but cooperation with administrative agencies alone is not possible.
Examples: Surveys and research, public lectures, events

, etc. in various fields such as health and welfare, social education, community development, promotion of science, culture, art or sports, environmental conservation, community safety,
etc. (2) Those that do not receive subsidies or subsidies from Kyoto City other than academic town collaboration projects.

【Requirements for cultural framework only】
(3) Priority theme "Culture of the region"
In addition to the requirements of (1) and (2), projects that work to unearth the culture dormant in the region, pass on the culture that has been passed down through generations
in the region, and disseminate it for the future, or projects that work to
create a new culture through the knowledge of the university and the vitality of students.
In order to inherit and archive local culture, it is necessary to disseminate the results of activities in printed materials and videos.
* There are various aspects of
"culture", such as lifestyles and customs such as art, performing arts, events, industries, clothing, food, and housing, and old to new.
I hope that universities, student groups, and the local community themselves will carry out activities from the perspective that "this is culture."
