This project will build partnerships towards the publication of a special Japan issue of Garland magazine.
The Garland magazine is a platform of the World Crafts Council - Australia for engaging in the craft cultures of the broader Asia Pacific Region. A new Japan issue is part of a five-year strategy to map the contemporary material cultures of Australia and the region and look for common interests. This issue will highlight Australian exchanges with Japan and engage Japanese support for the ongoing regional conversation about the value of the handmade as a form of creative expression.
