About

BEPPU PROJECT is a non-profit art organization based in Beppu, Japan. Founded in April 2005, we have since implemented various activities such as the introduction and promotion of local and international arts. Incorporating the regional aspects, development of human resources, promotion of craft products and savoir-faire, we have achieved this through holding art projects. With these projects, we strive to develop local potential through art, and make more regional places attractive to the world. BEPPU PROJECT has also conducted Artist in Residence Program called "KASHIMA" since 2008.
