“Moat’s Art” New Event for 2020

This will be a summer without global artists performing in Motomachi Park, but it will not be a summer without WMDF creativity!

In one of our many brainstorming sessions about what to do in a Covid World, we came up with the idea of maintaining physical distance by having performers in rowboats on the moat of Hakodate’s fort.

This crazy idea is now in production!

You can see all the details at the Moat’s Art web site.

We teamed up with the good folk from the “Yagai Geki” to kick off the event with an art installation of our “World’s Eye” flags. Thanks to all who turned up to beautify the “stage”.

We will be doing our best to bring a little art spark to these hard times and support the local creative community. Since physical distancing means we can’t have large crowds, we will be making Moat’s Art videos available online… Maybe you can find your own inspiration?

Environment Day Perspective

World Environment Day. We think everybody is already looking around themselves with new eyes this year. Perhaps we can get a new meaning of the often-heard corona-era words “Be kind” and “Be safe”.
