Spiral Independent Creators Festival (SICF) is an open-call art festival that aspires to discover, foster, and support emerging artists and designers.  This year, due to special circumstances, SICF 21 (the 21st Spiral Independent Creators Festival) has been re-scheduled from May’s Golden Week to September 19 (Sat) - 22 (Tue / NH), 2020. 

Organized by Spiral, a cultural facility located in Aoyama (Tokyo), in Spiral Hall (Spiral 3F), SICF brings together creative talents across different fields and disciplines to present their work.

At the end of the festival, a series of awards are announced, including the Audience Prize, which is selected by visitors, as well as the Judges Prizes, Second Prizes, and Grand Prize. The winners receive the opportunity to exhibit their work again at Spiral in a group show and the Grand Prize winner also wins a solo exhibition at Showcase (Spiral 1F). 

On your visit to the festival, do not miss “SICF20 Winners exhibition” that will be held at Spiral Garden (Spiral 1F). 

This time, on top of the real event, it will be possible to communicate and support the exhibitors, and to purchase art works through the digital platform "ArtSticker".  An online viewing, that allows you to see the entire festival will also be put online at the end of the event.
