Butsubutsu Exchange (Kumin Hiroba Konan Daichi facility)

Exchanging items along with their stories

Public facilities rooted in the community x ONOKORO volunteers

We will be holding a project investigating the shape of Art Station at public facilities rooted in districts within the Toshima-ku together with ONOKORO volunteers involved with Toshima Art Station Koso. Using Junior and Senior High School Student Center Jump Nagasaki, Kumin Hiroba Konan No. 1, and Miraikan Taimei as fields for their research, participants will propose and implement the plans they come up with.

This time we will be holding a “Butsubutsu Exchange,” which is the plan that was selected to be implemented out of all the plans that were presented. A Butsubutsu Exchange is a gathering in which participants exchange items with the people they meet, listening to each other’s stories.

We’re exchanging precious memories at the Kumin Hiroba Konan Daiichi facility. Chat freely as you compare photographs and postcards that take you down memory lane.

What to bring:

A treasured memory, and an item such as a photograph related to it
Look at each other’s photographs and postcards, or images stored on digital cameras and smart phones, and share the associated memories in quiet “chitter-chatter”.

*You can also simply show the photographs etc. that you have brought in, or give them to someone
*You can bring anything that brings back memories or means a lot to you, such as a private photograph of family members, a landscape photograph you took yourself, a picture postcard bought on vacation, a picture from an album etc.
