1st in series of cultural charity exhibitions “100 motanka’s for Peace” in Japan just finished. More to come. Proud to be Ukrainian organizer of this charity project in Japan.

In total more than 100 works were sent from Ukraine. Also there were works from Japan and other countries.

Fantastic people participate in this project with their impressive works and moving stories, how they make motanka’s during 1st days and weeks of war, how they made master-classes in metro, which was/is bombshelter for families, who lived there in 1st week’s of war. It was both heartbreaking and inspiring.

We are extremely thankful to Ms.Anna Inoue from Japan, who is main engine, inspiration and soul of this project. 

Project includes several exhibitions, master-classes for cultural exchange: making motanka’s in Japan and making origami in Ukraine, master-classes as art-therapy for children in shelters for temporary Ukrainian refugee and charity fundraising for Ukrainian children.

Both organizers and visitors learned a lot about motanka’s and happy about this cultural wave.
