Creating a lively atmosphere in the city of Kyoto through art! What is Kyoto City's approach?

Efforts to utilize vacant spaces in facilities and stores as art exhibition sites are flourishing throughout Kyoto City. In response to these efforts, Kyoto City trains art coordinators who coordinate exhibitions, promotes exhibition facilities and stores, and sometimes organizes events as an organizer. Here, we introduce Kyoto City's efforts and a survey to win a special gift.

2.Kyoto City Initiatives 2] Publication of "KYOTO UNIQUE VENUES FOR ART

Unique venues, meaning "special (unique) venues (venues)," is a concept that originated in Europe. It refers to venues such as historical buildings, temples, shrines, castle ruins, museums, and other attractive locations that are rented out for conferences, receptions, events, and other needs that differ from their original purpose. Unique venues are intended to enhance surprise and excitement by creating local characteristics and a sense of specialness. Kyoto has been attracting interest from overseas artists because of its many temples and shrines and modern architecture that can interact with history, rather than the inorganic white-walled "white cube" venues.
