Creation Project
Creation Project is a series of annual exhibitions launched in 1990 as a charity event that also conveys the fun and enjoyment of art and design to a large number of people. Each year works created on a noncommercial basis by artists with links to the two galleries have been displayed and offered for sale, and the proceeds have been donated to various charity causes. In 2009 the name “Creation Project” was adopted. From 2011 through 2015, the project was conducted to support recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami disaster of March 2011, generating donations totaling approximately ¥11.34 million. In 2016 a donation in the amount of ¥1.58 million was made in support of recovery from that year’s series of severe earthquakes in the Kumamoto region. Since 2017 the scope of production bases for the featured items has been expanded nationwide, and the project serves to demonstrate, through the power of design, Japan’s traditional craftsmanship and industrial capabilities. Under this format, in 2017 and 2018 a total of ¥3.63 million was donated to the “Save the Children” charity organization.
