石垣島クリエイティブ・フラッグ / Ishigaki Isl. Creative Flag

(English text follows)

石垣島クリエイティブフラッグ」は、石垣島のクリエイティブなアウトプットを、「石垣ブランド」で世界に発信することで地域(離島)活性化を試みる、日本でも初めての試みです。

石垣市振興課によるリード。スマートなチームワークで、東京の代官山にある「石垣島商店」でも展示をするなどの実績を確実に積んでいます。

先日マガジンハウス系の雑誌コロカルで、移住歴若干1年の私のアトリエを取り上げていただきました。これも、クリエイティブ・フラッグのおかげです。

私自身も海外生活が長いので、海外での石垣島ブランドに貢献したいと考えています。

“Ishigaki Isl. Creative Flag” is a local brand that promotes the creative culture of Ishigaki Island to the world. This attempt is one of the first in all-over Japan.
This project is led by Ishigaki City. They are continuously promoting the project and already made an exhibition at the “Ishigaki-jima shop” in Daikan’yama in Tokyo.
The other day my atelier was reviewed by a web magazine Colocal.  This also owes to the Creative Flag network.
Since I’ve lived for long in the foreign countries I hope to contribute myself to the project.
