The Art Program, an official event of EXPO 2005, was organized by Wacoal Art Center Co., Ltd. on behalf of the Japan Association for the 2005 World Exposition Bureau International des Expositions (BIE). N&A collaborated with Wacoal in the production of artworks for this project. Entitled "Diverse Ways of Happiness," the program featured a collection of works by seven young artists from Japan and abroad who were born after 1970, the year of the Osaka Expo. Works were displayed at seven different outdoor locations across the Expo grounds so visitors could enjoy viewing them as they explored the Expo. As one of its key concepts, the program encouraged visitors to think about current forms of happiness that could be passed down to future generations.
