Tohoku-Scotland Art Exhibition

Date: 18-25 October 2011, 10am-5pm
Venue: Sculpture Court, Edinburgh College of Art, Lauriston Place, Edinburgh EH3 9DF

Described as a thousand year event, it will take years for Tohoku and its people to recover from the earthquake and subsequent tsunami and nuclear disaster. The dignity of the Japanese response inspired the world. This exhibition aims to continue to inspire the international community and give some inspiration back to the people of Tohoku.

A 76 page, full colour catalogue of the exhibition is available.
All the art works are for sale: 40% of any sales will be donated by the artists to support projects with Tohoku artists working towards recovery in the regions devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami and nuclear disaster; as will 100% of any benefit from sales of the catalogue. This is a rare opportunity to buy work from some of Tohoku and Scotland’s top artists.
