The Matsudo International Science Art Festival is an annual celebration that takes place in the picturesque city of Matsudo, Japan. The festival brings together a diverse group of artists, scientists, and researchers from all over the world to showcase their latest projects. The festival endeavours to connect art, science, and nature and is held in various locations throughout Matsudo City, including the central venue, Tojo-tei and Tojogaoka Historical Park, which is a historic architectural site and garden.
Ars Electronica has been instrumental in the conceptualization, curation, and implementation of the festival since its inception in 2018. With the collaboration of the local government and creative professionals in the city, the festival aims to envision the future of society and humanity together.
During the festival, there are numerous exhibitions, talks, and workshops in the festival venues. Additionally, local shops and artists display “catalyst” signs and host their own events, creating a vibrant atmosphere for visitors to connect, collaborate, and be inspired throughout the city.
