“Paper-Craftsman Resident and Cultural Exchange” Program with Masters TomomiHisashi Kano of Obara, Toyota City

Papercraft Masters’ Kano will introduce their culture’s traditional art craft to locals in the Detroit area. Implementing an academic approach, the program will help develop a cultural exchange with young artists allowing them to appreciate Japanese culture. In addition, this idea will help promote and globalize their traditional Japanese art and craftsmanship from extinction.

Masters Tomomi and Hisashi Kano demonstrated how to make Washi using their traditional tools in Japan Cultural Days in November 2017

Our goal is to create a twoway exchange and mutual understanding about the issues occurring in both the communities of the US and Japan.

Looking for ideas of cultural exchange
Some examples of ideas so far…

① Host paper-making workshops in local JBSD
companies and Ringo-kai
② JBSD hosts receptions to encourage the cultural
exchange between Mastersʼ Kano and local
communities.
③ JBSD provides exhibitions to display masterʼs and studentsʼ artwork at
art museums or libraries for the public to see.

and more…

JCD is still looking for more ideas from the public. If you have any, please find the CONTACT in JCD Web site jcd-mi.org and mail us.

JCD will decide whether your idea would work, though that is not guaranteed. JCD welcomes that companies or educational organizations would invite Mastersʼ Kano to their site for a workshop, lecture or site tour. If you have any questions and concerns, please let us know.
