Ever since its opening in 2001, Tokyo Wonder Site has undertaken a wide range of programs to support and foster young artists. One such program, TWS-Emerging, is associated with the open call exhibition, Tokyo Wonder Wall, which has been providing talented young artists with a gateway to success. Each year 100 people are selected from about a thousand applicants, and their works are displayed at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. A further process then selects 14 of those 100 for the opportunity to show their works to the wider public at the gallery in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building.

TWS-Emerging invites the same 100 artists to participate in another exhibition, and those chosen are put on display at Tokyo Wonder Site Hongo. For this year, 20 young artists were picked to show their works. Not only does each of the selected artists have their own individual exhibition, they are also invited to participate in a number of programs at TWS to raise their profiles and expand their activities. They are eligible to exhibit their works in the TEAM program at Tokyo Wonder Site Shibuya for example or take part in residency programs at Tokyo Wonder Site Aoyama: Creator-in-Residence as well as overseas residencies under TWS's international exchange programs.
