Kunisaki Art Festival

Branding & Public Relations

A unique culture has for generations developed on the Kunisaki Peninsula due to a blending of local and introduced elements. Now, through this new encounter between artistic visions and this land’s power, history and culture, we will witness the birth of unique artworks that could not have been made anywhere else. The festival will be centered around the three pillars of site specific works—which will be located during the festival in small villages along the coast and in the mountains—performance projects and residence projects, but it will also include trekking-hybrid tours, talks and much more. The festival will aim to be a new kind of “art festival to navigate by foot,” thereby allowing visitors to experience through art the unique power and flow of time of the peninsula. N&A was in charge of public relations for this Festival.
