Chiba Art Festival 2019

An Event You Can Enjoy both During the Day and at Night: Chiba Art Festival 2019

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is not only a sports festival, but also a perfect chance to broadcast the cultural appeals of the Prefecture.

Taking advantage of this, in 2018, Chiba Prefecture selected “Chiba Cultural Assets” (objects and experiences that characterize the various rich beauties of Chiba culture) with the help of Chiba citizens.
With the aims of spreading awareness of these Assets to the public, a “Chiba Cultural Assets” themed art event will be held.

During the event period, the appeals of “Chiba Cultural Assets” will be displayed in a variety of ways, such as with painting and photo exhibitions, digital art, projection mapping, art workshops, live performances, and more.
