wanakio 2002 was a collaboration project of artists, art curators, architects, town planners, inhabitants and local authorities aiming at revitalizing Okinawa's contemporary urban culture. Starting from a careful reading of the urban and social environment art and design projects are created in a direct interaction and communication process from within the urban reality.

The results of this process are presented in the wanakio urban exhibition from November 23rd through December 8th 2002 in Naha's Noren market and Maejima 3 Chome.

The program below gives an overview of the various activities that took place during the wankio event.
