BEYOND CULTURES, 1000 ORIGAMI CRANES PROJECT

For the cultural day in the city of Bussum on 11 September, we planned and hosted an event with a Japanese touch.
Great example of "co-creation" beyond cultures.
To share Japanese tradition of making 1000 origami cranes to wish Peace Love and Happiness in the community of newly joined Gemente Gooise Meren., 

 

With the commitees of Spiegelstraat business owners, we shared this beautiful tradition.

PEACE LOVE HAPPINESS beyond cultures

 

My mission was to share the beautiful tradition and values beyond cultures and beyond borders, beyond time.
This event is not just a showcase of Japanese culture and art.
This is an event to connect people in the community and create a collective conciousness "beyond cultures" and be one.
And to wish that all we need in the world is “Peace, Love, Happiness”.
