This is a work of performance art with public participation, created through the collaboration of a diverse array of people, transcending the boundaries of age, gender, nationality, occupation, and ability/disability. This project aims to turn its message of diversity and harmony into a national and international movement by forging links between people and regions as they participate in a common collaborative endeavor and share experiences of success through the creative process. The work will continually evolve as this progressive project tours various regions within Japan and overseas until 2020.
