Workshop: For the Sake of Anyone Who We Might Not Have Seen Yet SEASON 07
Viewing characteristic and fantastic films, animations, mangas and literature (aka ‘sub-cultural media’) ever made in the distinctive Hokuriku region of Japan as our essential references, the workshop’s aim is to derive the women’s images, lives, dreams and role they acted in from these characters 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 seventh year, a programme that was initially started in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture in the region, that has been gradually growing as a fair 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 open to everyone 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 assistance from the Cinématic Architecture Tokyo’s staff. Why don’t we have to share a fun and creative moment to think and express ourselves by making things?
＊The phrase ’ For the Sake of Anyone Whom We Might Not Have Seen Yet’ is taken from a dialogue of Satoko Kizaki’s Akutagawa Literature Prize-awarded novel, The Phoenix Tree (1985) which is located near the venue in the city of Takaoka.
