Open Class for citizens 2022.04→07

Each Open Class is aimed to convey the physical knowledge that Noism Company Niigata have found in the past activities.
 

Being influenced by others, human beings realize, get inspired, grow (innovate), create (accomplish) something that was previously unimaginable. It is something that has been repeated in the history of humankind all over the world and it can be said that this is the factor that has progressed civilization. And it is not an experience that was specially expressed only to those who make a name as a great man in history, but is universally experienceable for people of any age, gender, occupation, and race. As such, education is not about embedding knowledge as information, but it is about giving awareness, providing a place to meet people who inspire and to accept growth (innovation). To provide such a place of awareness and learning for the future — that’s the philosophy of Noism Open Class.
