Awaji Art Circus Executive Committee
Awaji Art Circus 2019
Based in Awaji Island, Awaji Art Circus (AAC) has three distinct missions:
- To develop art and culture on Awaji island and to create a chance for Japanese people to get to know international art of different genres.
- One is to bring about increase in population flow and local economic consumption leading to regional vitalization whilst utilizing local resources.
- The other is to let the world know the appeals of Awaji Island and more broadly Japan. AAC aims to become a new local tourism attraction and attract people from within and outside of Awaji Island.
Awaji Art Circus (AAC) is an international performing arts festival held annually since 2015 which is based in Awaji Island, considered as the Island of Japan’s Origin.
