Shinkiba & Yumenoshima Exciting Walk Art Festival 2023

Shinkiba, the town of wood.
Yumenoshima used to be a landfill of garbage.

In this place full of energy generated by people's activities and cultivation,
We will hold the second art festival.


What is valuable to someone is worthless to someone else.

Some people may feel that the trash on the road looks like treasure, or that art works are trash.

See familiar sights from a different perspective as you circle town and parks.

Art and workshops using waste materials, and works created by artists.
This will give you a hint of a new perspective.

The circulation that occurs in the two areas of Shinkiba town and Yumenoshima is
It's only a moment.

It becomes one vortex, involving all the viewers.
We would be happy if we could spread new "excitement".

Wood and Plywood Museum
It is the only museum in the world that extensively collects, preserves, and exhibits materials related to wood and plywood. We operate in such a way that everyone from children to adults can learn about the possibilities of wood, such as the preservation of the global environment and the comfortable and prosperous life through the use of wood. Raw materials (trees) such as kozo and mitsumata are used for Japanese paper. This time, we will create original Japanese paper that incorporates wood scraps from Shinkiba, a town of wood, using our own technique, and will exhibit works using that Japanese paper.
