The “Synergy” art exhibition was born out of a desire to showcase the artistic talents of the OIST community to the Okinawan community and to visitors from the mainland. Moreover, the exhibition aims to foster stronger relationships between OIST and the Okinawan community by promoting the development of artistic expression.
