Cultural and Artistic Activities

In our Artist-in-Residence project, we host domestic and overseas artists, who conduct creative activities while staying at the facility.
We open their creative process to the public in workshops. We also facilitate activities which will inspire regional pride by exploring the unique attractions of Niigata City with local cultural and artistic groups, it’ s nature, history and culture.

New Creative Arena

Through the interaction of citizens, old and young,
with Artists-in-Residence, a creative arena will be born.
Niigata City, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the opening of the port, will become a hub of cultural and creative activity.
