Workshop: For the Sake of Anyone Who We Might not Have Seen Yet SEASON 05

Viewing characteristic and fantastic films, animations, mangas and literatures (aka ‘sub-cultural media’) ever made in the characteristic Hokuriku region of Japan as our important references, the workshop’s aim is to derive the women’s images, lives, dreams and role they acted in from these characters in order to find visions for the future, ideas or suggestions for the urban planning and the community design.

This autumn is supposed to mark the workshop on its fifth year, a programme that was originally started in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture in the region, that has been gradually growing as a modest opportunity as a creative network for local people to share the sensibility and empathy in terms of art and culture, but this year’s campaign will be moved to Tokyo due to the novel coronavirus precaution.

It’s opened to students, business workers and all who is interested in film, architecture, urbanism, literature, representational culture or art as well as Hokuriku. No creative skills are necessary though we’ll ask you to make two or three-dimensional work to express your interpretation with an assistance by the Cinématic Architecture Tokyo’s staff. Why don’t we have share a fun and creative moment to think and express, taking such a very special occasion positively?

*The phrase ’ For the Sake of Anyone Who We Might not Have Seen Yet’ is taken from a dialogue of Satoko Kizaki’s the Akutagawa Literature Prize awarded novel, The Phoenix Tree (1985) which is located in the city of Takaoka.
