WTC 2020

       WTC Update (May)

May 11, 2020

We hope this message finds you well despite these unsettling times.

The World Taiko Conference Committee is researching ways to hold WTC 2020 safely, taking into account the various measures seen in Japan and abroad for preventing the spread of COVID-19.


Unfortunately, it looks unlikely that we will be able to hold the event as the large gathering we had planned under these unprecedented global conditions. We know this will come as a huge disappointment to everyone who was already planning on joining us in Tokyo from nearby, around Japan, and overseas. We want WTC to be a way for us to come together and get through this difficult time as a community, so we are now working on a new plan that will help us connect through taiko from the comfort and safety of our own homes around the world.


When more details are ready to share, we’ll be in touch again.

Thank you for your patience! Stay safe and well, everyone.
