This is the 6th year of the Ichihanari Art Project +3. Across the Mid-Sea Road are islands on which the unspoilt landscapes of Okinawa remain preserved even to this day. The most remote of these islands, Ikei Island, was long called “Ichihanari”.
Born on that island, the Ichihanari Art Project +3 aims to revitalize the islands through art, and has spread from Ikei to Miyagi Island, Hamahiga Island, and Henza Island. The event, where visitors can experience culture and art from each island, has seen an increasing number of attendees each year. This year saw a total of around 40 groups of artists who participated from Okinawa, Taiwan, Indonesia, and elsewhere locally and around the world. The islands were decorated with paintings, sculptures, industrial crafts, photographs, video, and other artwork.
The Ichihanari Art Project +3 has become an art festival where visitors can discover numerous works of art ingrained
in the memories of the island and the people who visit it, as well as the landscapes that we want to stay unchanged.
