"Fukughen." Talks, Hiroshi Sugimoto and invitation to art.

Hiroshi Sugimoto is a contemporary artist active in the world. Last year I founded "Enjiura Weather Station" in Odawara. There is a facility of world artists in this Odawara. Even this alone is exciting.

However, there are people who do not understand art, they feel that it is hard to achieve. In this Cultural Seminar, I came to know Mr. Sugimoto from the 1980s and welcomed Mr. Yoshio Suzuki, an art journalist who made a special issue of Sugimoto Special in a whole magazine "Brutus" in 2005. While introducing Hiroshi Sugimoto's activities, Let me talk about clues to enjoy art and enjoy art.

Odawara Citizen Exchange Center UMECO

The Otsuki Citizens Exchange Center UMECO is a facility where various people exchange and collaborate, such as citizen's people, citizen activity groups, business operators. We will aim to be a place to realize the linking of actions to social contribution from the opportunity to create a connection, with the basic concept "connected".

As a main facility, there is "Citizen Activity Plaza" (free) which combines the "exchange area" that anyone can use at any time and the "activity area" that the registered group uses for the reservation system. There are nine conference rooms (fee), which can be used according to purpose and number for various conferences and events.
