Field Trip Project Asia
The project is a brand new open art initiative responding to recent natural disasters. From preparedness to relief, recovery process and networking, the project involves artists from Asia to freely share and exchange creative ideas.
Started in 2012, Field Trip Project is an interactive traveling art exhibitions that bridge communities in support for 2011 tsunami/earthquake in Japan. It consists of 75 artworks created by Japanese and Canadian artists within Japanese elementary school backpacks (Randoseru) originally sent as relief supplies. The Project has traveled to over 20 destinations in Japan started at disaster affected areas and currently touring in Canada (Text from Asia field trip info) See http://asia.fieldtrip.info
Wish & Believe
The artwork on the backpack bag was to present new life and hope in nature though sometimes destroyed or ruined. We must always believe that in the darkest night the stars shine the brightest. Our beautiful earth is here to stay, not a load on our back but our honour to care and love.
