Community Art between Aceh and Japan

guidebook Aceh-Japan Community Art Project 2017   

Both of area in Aceh and Tohoku (Japan) were similarly faced terrible natural disasters of earthquake and tsunami. It was happen in 2004 in the sea of Sumatra and in 2011 in sea of eastern Japan. As a non-profit institution called as Chikyuu Taiwa Labo, we had managed many events in both countries starting from 2013. The events were based on a perception that the disasters happened not only left the loss for the land, but also shared the pains and experiences. Those feelings are expected to be felt together, so it triggers the new insight towards improvement and advancement. Regarding to that thought, in this year, we held an activity termed as the Aceh Community Art Project, which is collaborated with various parties.

Establishing an art community is a way of constructing togetherness and visualising existing social problems in the form of art. Having a background of the condition against the post-natural disaster and tsunami in Japan, we would like to organise the Aceh Community Art Project on December 2017 in Aceh, which also experienced the same catastrophe. The activity is planned for 3 years, starting from 2016 to 2019 considering the 15th anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami in Aceh.

Furthermore, in doing so, four of the consortium members from Aceh came to Tohoku on August 2017. They did a series of activities such as visiting to several elementary schools, residences of tsunami victims, social services, local festivals, and other related projects.

However, although the participants and the hosts have different language and culture, they could find valuable experiences through this exchange programme. The experience is needed to realise and to establish the goals of constructing many positive things against the disaster area in the future.
