Dialogue with the future, Sanriku and Indonesia
Sanriku International Art Festival 2019

Aceh, Indonesia is the disaster area of the Sumatra Earthquake in 2004. Tohoku is the disaster area of the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. The Laboratory for Global Dialogue has conducted the exchange projects between Aceh and Tohoku since 2013.

From 2017, it has developed into "Aceh-Japan Community Art Project". We visited and learned each other. we got various awareness or resonance from the "outside" point of view.

At "Sanriku International Art Festival 2019", we will have 6 projects based on results with people in Aceh. We will get rich experiences and encounters in Sanriku and it will make the project better in Aceh as a 15th anniversary of the Sumatra Earthquake in 2019. Like a play catch we will continue to make such mutual exchanges by culture forever.

6 projects in Iwate and Miyagi
