Project Sunshine for Japan
International Poster Exhibition OSAKA
Thanks to our Exhibition Executive Committee in Osaka we have presented the 100 posters and of the project Sunshine for Japan and the posters of our guests from September 9th to 19th at the Creative Network Center Mebic Ogimachi in Osaka.
The opening ceremony on Monday, 8th of September went very well. Thanks to all our supporting organizations we could once again display our posters in Japan with a lot of guests, designers, supporting organizations and some new comers. Shinnoske Sugisaki, the Jury Member of the Project Sunshine for Japan, opened the ceremony and invited Mansoureh Rahnama to hold a talk about how she started the project in Germany and which necessary steps she had to use to continue the project. The talk was in English and was translated into Japanese by Duncan Brotherton.
A round table with Shinji Nakagwa (Kyoto University), Robin Lewis (Peace Boat), Yasuhiro Takada (Japan Grace), Rie Yamanouchi (Artist from Tohoko) rounded the evening with a panel discussion about various activities of artists and designers in the last few years due to the recovery of the region after the disaster in Japan in 2011.
It was the first opening talk of the founder of the Project Sunshine for Japan with all the winners of the international poster competition from Kansai after three years’ hard work. The participating designers were Kaz Oomori, Toshio Kamitani, Toshiyasu Nanbu, Yuki Nishimura, and of course the special guests Takaharu Hara, Yoshimaru Takahashi, Yukichi Takada, Shinnoske Sugisaki and Keizo Matsui.
