The Australia-Japan Match Box Project is a series of touring portable art exhibitions and exchanges between Australian and Japanese artists, designers, curators and the general public. This evolving project aims to foster friendships and networks between Australia and Japan and introduce Australian and Japanese art and culture to audiences in both countries.

Under the umbrella of this project we have created numerous exhibitions and conducted various art exchange activities between our peers and with the public, including, artists and curators talks, studio visits, education programs, community art projects and art tours. Venues to date have included galleries, museums, universities, community centres, artist-run and alternate art spaces in Sydney, Melbourne, Gosford, Cowra, Tokyo, Furudono and Nagoya.
