© Reborn-Art Festival 2021-22
Mainly held in Ishinomaki City, Miyagi Prefecture, Reborn-Art Festival is a comprehensive festival of art, music, and food. Based on the concept of “Reborn-Art” as a means of living, it started in 2017 in the area devasted by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
Marking the tenth anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake, the third edition of the festival is held over two separate periods in consideration of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Under the theme of “Altruism and Fluidity,” Reborn-Art Festival is organized in two terms in, respectively, summer 2021 and summer 2022.
At a time when the globe is once again assailed by new uncertainties caused by a disastrous war, we aspire to present a vision of a new world never seen before through sharing a wide range of artistic expression.
Art That Invites Visitors to an Unknown World
Etsuko and Koichi Watari serve as curators of Reborn-Art Festival 2021–22: Second Term. Twenty-one artists and groups exhibit mainly new works in Central Ishinomaki and Oshika Peninsula. There are previously shown artworks that have become permanent exhibits.More Information
Music That Fosters Connections and Recovery
Reborn-Art Festival’s music this year expresses connections to art and food while also forming images of recovery and rebirth. The festival plans to hold a live concert with sensitive guest artists at the white shell beach in Oginohama.More Information
Food That Creates Cycles and Encounters
Visitors can enjoy food at restaurants and informal eating establishments, prepared by chefs from Ishinomaki and beyond who harness the food resources of Ishinomaki. These elaborate food sessions will usher in a wide range of encounters.More Information
Ishinomaki is the second largest city after Sendai in Miyagi Prefecture in Tohoku. The area is about 554 square kilometers and the population is about 140,000. The Oshika Peninsula in the southeast is an area rich in nature with one of the world's three major fishing grounds off Kinkasan.
It was badly damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake and the number of victims of tsunami was the worst among all the municipalities. Their gradual recovery, however, will be seen.
Come and experience the "art," "music," and "food" that the artists create by experiencing the history and local character of Ishinomaki.
“Advance sale” tickets and “Miyagi citizen’s discount” are available.
