After I invited Tohoku Earthquake 2011 Victims to my Japanese art online shop, artlabshop.com, I really feel having a mission, which I should help them. Some of them are still suffering.
When I talk to those people, they require that introducing their art work to overseas. After hearing their requirement, I decided to have art exhibition in Sydney for them. As below is a project plan.
“Exhibition in support of Tohoku Earthquake 2011 Victims
Our main purpose for this exhibition is to encourage victims of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Tohoku, Japan. We aim to do this by helping artists and crafts-people from the region to get back on their feet.
Many of these people lost their family, homes, and jobs, and some are still living in temporary accommodation. Daily it’s a struggle to find hope and something to live for.
So, the goal of the exhibition is to let people know their background stories and introduce their art works. We intend to display description panels on the wall telling people how those victims start making their own community, supporting each other and achieving their art activity. “
Daruma Restaurant kindly offered us to display and sale Shirakawa Daruma.
