Livening up Ishigaki with Creativity.

Standing a flag on the island’s creativity, “Ishigaki Creative Flag,” is about gathering people who work in creative fields of work such as designers, illustrators, cameramen, and editors. This creator community started in the Fall of 2013 and works on cultivation and PR.

With the goal of “Livening up Ishigaki with Creativity,” there are many workshops such as creative workshops for the residents of Ishigaki and the “Ishigaki Creative Labo,” which was created to improve the creative skills and the public relations campaigns of the creators who participate.

Inviting designers and editors active domestically and abroad as guests, they made reports on the 5 heated discussions they had.
