In TAB News by Paul Baron 2006-05-08

TAB has just published their 5000th event. In 18 months since our launch, that’s about 277 events on average per month. Who knew Tokyo had so much art to offer!

TAB Office:
In April, TAB finally opened a little office space and welcomed its 3 new part time staff.
This will help us secure our content quality and volume as well as manage our growth. We hope you will give us all your support!
The previous team of volunteer editors and translators has joined the Gadago NPO (the non profit organisation behind Tokyo Art Beat) and we are working on bringing new exciting projects around art and design.

We wish to thank the people and entities who have donated to the NPO over the past few weeks. See our new list of current benefactors, and please get in touch with us if you want to join the chart. There are 3 levels of donation, from ¥5,000 to ¥100,000.

Advertising Banners:
In March, we enjoyed banners from Mori Art Museum and Diesel, and said goodbye to the German Year in Japan banner, which had been on the site for 12 months!
This month we continue with the Pola Museum Annex space in Ginza, and the Design Bank website.
Please get in touch if you want to advertise on TAB.
Both donations and advertising banners are what keep us alive! Don’t hesitate to get in touch!

A growing TAB community:
Don’t forget that you can join our community on Mixi or upload your pictures of events in the “Tokyo Art & Design” Flickr Group

Firefox search engine:
One of our volunteers has made two Firefox search plugins that give quick access to the Japanese and English search functionality on Tokyo Art Beat (powered by Google). Add them to the Firefox search bar for instant TAB querying pleasure.
