Enter to win the Okazaki Tokiakari Award

"Okazaki Tokiakari” is an event which began in 2011 with the goal of creating a new way to showcase the charms of Okazaki by turning the nighttime scenery of Okazaki into a work of art and creating an event where many visitors can enjoy exploring the Okazaki area. The main feature of this event is projection mapping performance. Since 2013, participation in this portion of the event has been open to the public.  At this time we are soliciting participants for a Creator’s Workshop to help in the creation of projection mapping entries which will compete for the Okazaki Tokiakari Award 2016.

This year, the location is in front of the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art annex(the location is in a “LOHM SQUARE”),because the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art will repair.
