The Olympic Agora is a lively cultural hub in the Tokyo 2020 host city, with a special exhibition, artistic installations and digital activations.

As every edition of the Olympic Games plays out in an atmosphere of excellence, friendship and respect, there is also an indisputable and profound cultural impact on the host nation and global society at large. The Games unite the world in an unparalleled manner, and this is the foundation on which the Olympic Movement aims to build a better world, through a confluence of sport, culture and education.

Taking forward this spirit and the ‘Agora’ tradition from ancient Greece, the Olympic Foundation for Culture and Heritage is bringing a unique cultural project to central Tokyo during the Olympic Games. Inspired by the original concept of a social hub, and in keeping with the prevailing health measures, the Olympic Agora is a vibrant public space for cross-cultural dialogue and the expression of arts, culture, creativity and values linked to the Olympic Games. This convergence of sport and culture is on glorious display in the exciting Nihonbashi district, with messages of global solidarity, resilience and hope. Find out more.
