Nakanoshima is an island in the Kita ward of Osaka, measuring around 3km from east to west and lying between the Dojimagawa and Tosaborigawa rivers. Creative Island Lab Nakanoshima is a wide-ranging and experimental project that treats the entire Nakanoshima area like a creative laboratory offering a sustainable environment for culture and the arts. Through field research by six artists in Nakanoshima, the project aspires to develop creative geological surveys for re-cultivating the city as well as to construct a cultural network in the area and discover fresh approaches.
