And from their website:
…what would fuel your artistic imagination in Sapporo, or for that matter anywhere in Hokkaido?
There are many possibilities for collaboration – utilizing the regional characteristics of the natural environment, local cuisine, or agriculture as points of departure. Possible art projects could also involve participation from neighborhood markets, indigenous industries, and of course residents and their children. Or, simply exhibiting your personal artwork, hosting a workshop, lecture, symposium, or special event would also be welcomed. The choice is yours.
