July 2018


We have been developing the art festival and art programs at Odate city in Akita prefecture every year since 2007, such as in vacant store of shopping district and in natural rich suburbs. Many of the artists for the art festival will stay in the city every year, also we have conducted long-term residency program from 2012 to 2014. In Akita prefecture, there are delicious food, Japanese sake, rich nature and a lot of hot springs. They rooted in people’s lives as of course, unique culture that is inherited from the old days remains.

We are an artist run organisation, started in Summer 2018, open to all artists of every race and cultural background without any prejudiced or discrimination. Our aim is to help and support our artists to the best of our abilities through strong communication and adapting to each individuals needs. We will promote artists through our website and social media including any other form we find necessary, helping to form connections where we can (in the local and wider artist community). By providing time and space, sharing skills and knowledge, we hope to enhance the professional development of both our permanent and visiting artists. We will also strive to improve and develop ourselves through our artists and the Res Artis network, being open to suggestions that may help all parties in the future.
