At the 2016 art-festival more than 45 artists from 8 countries took part, donating their artwork for the good cause of helping the victims of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami catastrophe in Northwest-Japan. Half the proceeds of the 2016 event also was donated to the Kumamoto area where about 3 weeks before the event a large earthquake struck damaging the famous Kumamoto castle and many homes. We could sell a large amount of the donated artworks and together with the proceeds of the Opening Party/Concert and after-event sales we could collect
