The idea of "Independent Artists Japan" came from my head, after the last year TPAM2009.
Many people always are too isolated and too busy for our own work, and focus on that intention for only own benefits, not the others at all, so then, it would be a cause of our struggling.
"Sharing and creating could make our life happy", I believe.
Although, it is easy to say, and difficult to do,
I beliave that we all need to do something what we think for our world.
So, I started ask people who alreaday have enough career as a mature person, at the same time, who have good work to sell, but without selling people, like professional producers, or managers,
for now, the members are only dance,
however, it should be extended to music, visual arts, digital arts, and theater, e.c.t.
It also could be beyond only one country.
My question is,
How we can meet and know each other? What each of us can give you to share?
through, with, or beside of, our creative work.
It had been very hard work, because of the first trial, in which, we all are so different as independent, however,
I think we started to discover each other in a different ways with love and respect each other. At same time, I feel that we started to discover one self in a new way, as well as our "world" include the "market"-sell and buy-. thorough doing this project, the most benefit is that we started to look at every thing by different point of view.
I would like to thanks for all people who have agreed and join my idea as shared booth members, and TPAM 2010.
if you have any information of project in which you open opportunities for independent artists, please it me know,then I will share it to the people.
Thank you very much for reading.
