This event has ended.

In the aftermath of 3.11 the people of Japan sought to place souls to rest and looked towards regeneration with a sense of solidarity. But at the same time we left with the deep concerns of energy issues, rubble disposal and radiation disaster. Now the once loud outcry seems to be coming to a lull, but in this tragedy we have come to see both the good and bad which has been long hidden behind the shadow of Japan’s prosperity. What can artists do at such times? Art has strength both in the moment and through the tides of history, able to captivate in an instant and keep a hold beyond time. Is it not the role of the artist to compact the fragments of this experience, crystallize share it and pass it on to future generations?
