a base for expressive and creative activities of both international
and domestic artists, "Akiyoshidai International Art Village(AIAV)"
was constructed August 1998, in Shuho Town next to The Akiyoshidai
National Park, which beautiful limestone landscape was formed over
three hundred million years ago.
This art village is fully
equipped for various artistic activities such as music, art, dance and
drama. We focus on the Artists In
Residence Program and expand
cooperative programs with international and domestic organizations.
We also hope to hold regional programs and promote a beneficial exchange
between resident artists and local citizens.
By gathering artists from
all over the world and developing their creative activities, cultural information
from this region will spread internationally.
The Akiyoshidai International
Art Village (AIAV):

in a wide range of artistic fields such as music, art, dance, and theater
by providing a space for their creation and presentation.
