Niihama SDGs Art Festival

Saturday, August 24, 2019 to Friday, October 18, 2019

The Niihama SDGs Art Festival, to be held 24 August – 18 October, 2019, in Niihama City, Ehime Prefecture, Japan, is currently accepting artwork submissions, to be displayed at the Niihama City Museum of Art (Akagane Museum) during the exhibition period.  

The festival aims to increase children’s in-depth understanding of the efforts towards the realisation of a sustainable society while enjoying art, to encourage art activities that raise awareness on the SDGs, and to deepen and improve ESD beyond Niihama City and make advanced efforts to foster city-wide momentum towards the achievement of the SDGs.

Elementary and Junior High School students from Grades one to nine are invited to submit planar works using paper and/or video. Applications should be submitted to Niihama City Museum of Art (or an organisation/group designated by the coordinating committee) directly or by post between 1 April and 30 June, 2019, together with the Application Form. Further information about the festival can also be found here.
