During Japan's period of isolation, this Kankai Ariake region was the sole gateway to foreign technology and culture. As a legacy of that time, various assets, including art and craftsmanship, continue to thrive, and from there, something new is about to be born.We are once again focusing on that potential, aiming to discover the undiscovered charm of Kyushu, unknown even to us, and to widely communicate these new values.When thinking of the vast sea on this planet, the Ariake Sea is very small, a narrow area at best. However, this is precisely why a culture has developed. There is abundant nature that has been carefully preserved. The ONE Ariake Art Festival hopes to serve as a catalyst for new discoveries and creations for all of you.
ONE Ariake Art Festival is a migratory art project in the Kankai Ariake region. The festival aims to rediscover the charms and challenges of the region and connect the rich culture of Ariake with the importance of living with abundant nature, through nature conservation activities in the Ariake Sea and creative activities by children and people with disabilities.The theme of the festival is "Diversification of Local Resources". y combining the unique cultures of the Kankai Ariake region, such as art, craftsmanship, sports, food, drinks, and tea, which have developed over a long time, the festival's purpose is to create new experiences, products, and values.

The green shapes represent the "harmony of the Kankai Ariake region" and the "abundance of the land." On the other hand, the blue shapes represent the "wonder born from encounters with new cultures" and the "abundance of the sea." When these two shapes overlap, they express the creation of unique experiences that can only be found in this place. Furthermore, within the blue shapes, there are six additional patterns. Each of these patterns symbolizes categories like Art + Craftsmanship, Nature, Sake, Food, Sports, and Tea. These patterns are formed as if they were created when paint was splashed, representing the randomness and expansiveness of the content.
