About Kaneko

KANEKO is a 501(c)(3), public non-profit cultural organization, exploring and encouraging the process of creativity, and how it impacts our lives. We believe that everyone can be creative; the challenge is to recognize opportunities for creative effort. As humans we need to harness and cultivate creativity in our citizens and invest in a creative society.

Established in 1998 by international artist Jun Kaneko and his wife Ree, KANEKO is headquartered in three turn-of- the-century warehouses in the Old Market District of Omaha, Nebraska. KANEKO is an institution with a vision to celebrate creativity and is committed to fostering it as the overriding mission with four major programming themes: Design, Ideas, Performance, and Innovation.

KANEKO’S MISSION

Creativity begins with an idea – seeing things differently.
Our purpose is exploring the creative process – how a new idea is born into the arts, sciences, and philosophy.
There is no restriction for creative activity.
Imagination has complete freedom.
Supporting and promoting freedom in creativity is KANEKO’s mission.
