Seeking participants for “Immigration Museum TOKYO”
How are Japanese cities and the lives of Japanese people reflected in the eyes of foreigners living in Japan?
What is the most difficult while adapting to a new life in Japan?
Have you ever wondered such things above?
“I’ve acquired some new living habits in Japan.” “This one custom from my country, I am not willing to give up.” “Japanese are very interesting in some ways but also strange and amusing in other…”
Has any of these thoughts occurred to you?
“Immigration Museum TOKYO” (abbreviated IMM) is a project for introducing and sharing different cultures of foreigners living in Japan. How would you like to take part in the creation of artworks using interesting firsthand accounts of experiences and difficulties faced by foreigners in Japan?
We invite anyone to join us who are interested in how foreigners express little moments of uneasiness or awkwardness.
If you would like a chance to share your thoughts on Japan with Japanese people,
or wish to witness your own story being made into an artwork,
or just would like to participate because you are intrigued,
you are welcome to join!
