The Inter x cross Creative CenterThe Inter x cross Creative Center (ICC) in Sapporo has been a long-time partner of Project Esin. Established in Hokkaido in August 2000 with the purpose of supporting creators from all backgrounds, it has become a leading organization for the promotion of creative industries in the region.
In 2008, as part of its community outreach program, ICC held “ICC Festival 2008” for local residents. The festival took place in Tokyo in 2009 and 2010 as “ICC Festival in Tokyo”. In March 2015, ICC hosted its first Esin workshop with a large group of creators including visual artist, designers, and contemporary artists.
