Beginning - Kobayashi Miki Live

Venue: Former Omiya Library and underground theater
Mizuki Kobayashi's live performance as a singer-songwriter. The first, scheduled for a total of 4 performances, will be delivered on the theme of “beginning”. Something is over and something begins. We will deliver mainly songs that you have always wanted to do, things that you couldn't do easily, and songs that gently push your back. You can decide when it will begin. Why don't you relax at Omiya's small theater this Christmas?

We will perform the most four performances among the performers. I hope to be able to deliver a time where you can immerse yourself in the sound at each time while developing a single story throughout the whole. Enjoy as much freedom as you like.

Meeting of real feelings

Facilitator: SACP team
Cooperation: KAPL
Date and time: December 28 (Sat) 15: 00-17: 00
Venue: Old Omiya Library / Lecture Room
Contents: Talk about the art festival! Let's talk about "real intention" now!
Today, there are many art festivals and art projects all over the country. In 2020, the International Art Festival will be held in Saitama City. Art is being developed in spaces where people come and go from spaces such as museums and galleries, and people from various positions are involved in the search for new art development. The discovery of local resources through art, the revitalization of the region, the light of economic ripple effects ... While these things are said, the site is not said to be smooth sailing, and there are many scenes that face various issues and become exhausted. It is certain that it exists. I would like to ask people from various sites and positions about the “real intention” of what is happening at various sites through the “real conference”. This is the 6th time this year will be held as a party to look back on the program so far, in conjunction with the 2019 year-end party. While I can hear the noisy footsteps to 2020, I want to share the true feelings of the site now! We want to share the experience gained in those places and grow a strong “root”! Thank you for your participation!
