The Shirabe Festival

​May 17th - 21st


ShirabeShirabe is all about intercultural exchange, respect, and understanding. We want to connect people - no matter who they are, where they come from, or what they believe in. And we want to touch them where it matters most: in their hearts. What else could be more heart-touching than the lovely sound of music, than a breathtaking moment of art?[し ら べ shirabe, Jap .: sound, search] 


we bring together artists from all over the world to create unique encounters between cultures, countries, and people. Let art spread the word across cultural, economic, and academic sectors worldwide!
