Call for Entry Published: Kimono Inspiration Challenge, Shibori Mini

We've added an exhibitions page listing symposium exhibitions in all three regions, and are pleased to announce two new calls for entry!

Now open

  • Kimono Inspiration Challenge: Yukata from Abroad challenges international artists to design inspirational new summer wear for the Arimatsu artisan community. Garments will be displayed at the annual Arimatsu Shibori Festival as well as the 11 ISS, and will enter the permanent collection of the Arimatsu-Narumi Shibori Kaikan.

  • Shibori Mini calls for innovative and engaging interpretations of shibori, confined to a 30x30x30cm (roughly 12x12x12in) space.

Next up

  • Another call for entry will be opening soon for New Beat: International Student Competition.

  • Pop-up shops in Nagoya and Yamagata where you can bring goods to show and sell will also have calls for entry.

We'll send out an announcement to the mailing list when these are ready for submissions.
