About “創発 in さいたま”

There are many artists living in Saitama City who are active in Tokyo.

They have also exhibited their works at local galleries and museums while studying with artists who live nearby.

By encouraging collaboration between such activities and people engaged in civic activities, this project hopes to bring about new “創発” (*2) in local culture.

*2 創発: The emergence of characteristics that are not simply the sum of the characteristics of the parts, but emerge as a whole.
