Worlds Meet Japan GIA

The World Music and Dance Festival is organised by the Committee of the World Music and Dance Festival, which is an activity of the non-profit “Worlds Meet Japan” General Incorporated Association (GIA).

WMDF is made possible thanks to the efforts of its staff, who volunteer their time usually for free. Their efforts ensure that WMDF can continue to be a success, and attract overseas artists to a unique experience in Japan.
