Inspired by the Kurashiki City Ohara Museum of Art’s Children’s Art Museum program, this event came from a cultural exchange made between Kurashiki City in Okayama Prefecture and Shiogama City, after the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. This event aims to foster creative and critical thinking after the disaster, as well provide fresh ideas and inspire creativity to local youth.
