What is E.S.A.?

E.S.A. (European Suiseki* Association) is a non-profit educational organization, advances the ancient and living art of suiseki and related arts through the global sharing of knowledge. We educate while promoting international friendship and solidify world relationships through cooperation with individuals and organizations whose purpose is consistent with ours.

“The objects of the Association shall be to promote Suiseki art and stone appreciation generally; this may be done by acting as stimulus to its members, through teaching all aspects of the art and science of suiseki; promoting suiseki to the general public; organising meetings, exhibitions and publications.” (Art.2, E.S.A statues)

E.S.A. organizes mostly in cooperation with E.B.A. every year  a convention and an exhibition in one of the European cities. This exhibition presents the exponates of ESA members. Besides the exhibition also the Annual General Meeting takes place.
