This website is a collection of portfolios of Japan-based artists/Japanese artists for the European Capital of Culture (ECoC) that enable them to get the latest information of the artists.
ECoC is a prominent project on the global level which invites artists from all over the world. Every year, the title cities have a numerous cultural project throughout a year.
