Saitama Triennale is an art festival that is held once every three years in Saitama City. Since the first installment in 2016, the Triennale has been taking place with a lineup of artists from Japan and abroad, with the aim to boost cultural activities in the region, and thereby enhance the appeal of Saitama as a city of art and culture. An art festival that is open for anyone to “join in and make things together,” the Triennale takes place all across Saitama City as an occasion that encourages exchange among citizens, between citizens and artists, and between artists and the region at large.
