Tokyo Midtown Design Hub 84th Exhibition “JAGDA Outreach Exhibition Part 3 Hurray Hurray Handkerchiefs”
This event has ended.
Since 2018, the Japan Graphic Designers Association (JAGDA) has been supporting artists and athletes with disabilities by making the most of design’s power to connect. The theme for 2020, when the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games are held, is handkerchiefs. Insert a stick into one side of these handkerchiefs and they become flags showing support for the athletes. Designers select works registered at Able Art Company, a library of works by artists with disabilities, and design a handkerchief. They will be on display starting from Tokyo and travel across Japan with proceeds going to charity. Designers put their professional skills to use as volunteers, and donate the proceeds of sales, minus the artists’ usage fees and manufacturing costs, to the Paralympic Association of Japan.
