Sapporo Cultural Arts Community Center

Title SIAF2024 Visitor Center

“Visitor Centers” found in nature parks offer guidance, explanations, experience enhancement, and social interaction. What if instead of a nature park, these same principles (and more!) were applied to an Art Festival Visitor Center? SCARTS serves as a unique Visitor Center for SIAF2024, acting as a social hub for local artists, businesses and media, and a diverse range of collaborators.

The first floor of the center features general information on SIAF2024 alongside Sony’s interactive exhibit “INTO SIGHT,” open to the public for the very first time in Japan, while the second floor will feature an exhibit on snow cities and nature brought to you by SIAF Lab in tandem with Panoramatiks, as well as various events and talks including a public podcast recording with WIRED.
