In May 1997, with the cooperation with the local commercial bodies and Kitakyushu City, Center for Contemporary Art, CCA Kitakyushu, a non-profit organization was established to run the first public educational and research institute in Japan dedicated to contemporary art. The center provides young artists and others engaging in curatorial work with the opportunity to develop their reflections into contemporary art. The program allows participants to interact and exchange ideas on a daily basis with the artists of the professorship and also with the specialists from various fields as lecturer during the seminar terms, in order to broaden the perspectives of the participants.
In March before the completion of the program, the participants of artist work for the exhibition at their own studio and open to the public, and the participants of curatorial study organize the group show at the CCA's gallery. All participants of research program are compulsory to join the seminar including a program of lectures/workshop and discussion, which are led by professionals in contemporary art and the other fields as professors/lecturers.
Public transportation access: 8 minute walk from the Yahata Station on the JR Kagoshima Main Line.
