We are from Sydney, NSW, andhave chosen Sydney, Tokyo and Nagoya as our major zones of exchange for our first Match Box Project. Sydney & Nagoya are sister cities and NSW and Tokyo Metropolitan Government are sister states.
In May, Leanne and I travelled with Match Box Galleries to Japan. It was Leanne’s first venture to the land of the rising sun, whilst it was my 7th time. I have lived on and off in Japan for the past 12 years. We travelled to Fukushima where I was based for a year in 2002 and to Tokyo and Nagoya to explore the art scenes and introduce the Match Box Projects to future participants.
We met amazing people along the way. See our blog entries on Furudono, Tokyo and Nagoya
We thank the following for their support.
