Festivals of Arts
Festivals of Arts are yearly festivals held throughout Isekai that celebrate a wide variety of art forms in the name of Sotark, the God of Music. Often held in the summer, these festivals are held in large cities and can last days or weeks depending on the group organizing the festival. These are extremely popular events in which to become involved in a type of art or to sell one's creations.
For those of us that follow the God of Music, attending one of these festivals is our pilgrimage. Amongst all the people we find kindred souls that find the heart of the world in creation, the making of expressions with our own hands. For me, the culmination of the experience is meeting these people and sharing my art, giving them a little of the feeling I have when I create.
All festivals happen in summer when the warm air entices people to join and mingle, coming with creation or just to share in the joy that is the various arts. Each one is different depending on the city but all is open air, only enclosed by the canopies built to house the plays that mark the beginnings of these festivals. All are welcome, all art is welcome. Nothing is turned away in the name of Sotark.
