What is Shonan International Art Festival?

We Japanese have lived with the sea since ancient times.In particular, those of us who live from Miura to Yugawara (Shonan Coast), which surround Sagami Bay, feel close to the sea, have become familiar with it, and have created history together with it.The Shonan Coast has great potential, and by rediscovering and rediscovering the charm of Shonan, a new flow of people will be born. We aim to create a blue economy from the perspective of culture and the arts in order to revitalize the wide-area community of ``a city with a sea overlooking Mt. Fuji,'' and we hope that the Shonan International Art Festival, which values ​​the perspective from the sea, will be an opportunity to do so. Masu.By transmitting art from the ocean, we will redefine the existence of the ocean for those of us who live in the present and future, and this will in turn become one of the roadmaps for improving ocean environmental issues and regional issues. I will take care of you.
