WMDF and the Mogu Mogu Festival are brought to you by "Worlds Meet Japan". We are non-profit, and run by volunteers. Any proceeds of our event go to our work on transformational social and educational projects locally and internationally.
Welcome to a Twelfth Year
Winter has returned to Hakodate for a final dusting of snow, but our thoughts are already on entirely new seasons. WMDF’s first spring shoots of activity are seeking the attention of a little publicity. Locally, the April “HakoRaku” magazine is featuring from today the delightful WMDF Guide leader Namiko. For the next three months, it will also carry our call for sponsors, volunteer staff, and crowdfunding support:
Yes, our first crowdfunding venture… We have partnered with Campfire in Tokyo to see what the big city will make of our event. We invite you to check out the page, which is mostly Japanese but with some rather nice icons. The site offers the first way to purchase one-day tickets in advance, and also to get WMDF goods and MoguFes goods online.
Hokkaido is well into autumn, but we are recalling summer highlights with our 2018 photo gallery. As a start on the “new beginnings” theme for the next decade of our event, we hope you get a sense of some of the potential. Not resting on our laurels, we are already hard at work on next year, so start making your plans for August 5th to 11th. For international artists: the Oct 20 is coming soon!
