Finding Our Art
2nd Community Art Project

Aceh, is the location of the earthquake and tsunami that occurred on the Sumatra in 2004, and also Tohoku, which is the location of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster. Since 2013, The Laboratory for Grobal Dialogue, which is a non-profit organization, organized activities that connect the two areas with "Project Cooperation between Disaster Areas of the Aceh, Indonesia and Tohoku". From 2017 this activity developed and changed into "Aceh-Japan Community Art Project" and the Aceh Community Art Consortium was established in Aceh.

Last year the community art in Japan was introduced by Japanese artists through various activities. This year we don't have the art director but planning and ideas come from public. From Aceh, Malaysia and Japan we got 17 projects. They will be held for 11 days until the 14th Tsunami commemoration on December 26, 2018.

When talking about "art" you may imagine painting or sculpture. However, "art" that we do is bigger and broaderless. People who do not have the skill or knowledge of art or people who do not have an interest in art can participate in these activitiese. Through various ways and courage, the projects show you the history or problems that exist in two countries. We are waiting for you!
