Weeks have passed yet the sheer scale of devastation wrought by the recent earthquake and tsunami on the east coast of Japan is still impossible to fully comprehend.
Watching the scenes unfold on TV screens those of us with friends and family in the country were left with a horrible feeling of disconnection and a sense of uselessness.
There have been many responses from the Arts and Creative industries to this tragedy and our friend Soju Tanaka has arranged an art and illustration show to raise funds for the relief effort.
This will take place on Sunday the 3rd of April
32-36 Kingsland Road
EGAKU means “draw” and “imagine ” in Japanese. We hope that we can support Japanese people EGAKU ( imagine) a peaceful future by EGAKU (drawing).
100% of all money made will be donated to the relief effort, so please join us on 3rd of April at Jaguar Shoes for those suffering in Japan.
