“I like art and photography, I like people, I like Kyoto, I like festivals! “I want to enjoy the festival from a different point of view than the visitors. “I want to enjoy Kyoto in autumn from a different angle. “I want to meet and interact with other art and photography lovers, or I’m looking for an opportunity to start something new. We welcome everyone. Every year, a variety of people from junior high school students to the elderly are active in this event.

No experience necessary. There are no difficult tasks. Please feel free to apply first. We are looking for people who can work with a spirit of hospitality, mainly during the exhibition period from September to October.

Now that we have reaffirmed the importance of connecting with others and having fun together, why don’t we enjoy the festival together?
