Japan Earthquake and Tsunami March 2011

Relief 2.0 - Japan Art Festival

All for one

I'm currently planning a project to bring art from the artists living in the affected areas in Japan to different parts of the world like NYC, Boston, Singapore, Taiwan and Mexico to help them sell their art and create awareness for the Relief 2.0 movement. One of the goals of this Art Festival is to change mindsets from donation based to one of conscious buying, which would give dignity to survivors who work and earn their own money and benefiting the economy in the disaster areas. I believe that this will accelerate the recovery process.

Re-look at Disaster Relief

Every time a disaster happens, a little part of me gets excited to learn more about what happened on the ground. The media coverage often paints a story of disaster, and most of the reporting is done at a macro level showing the destructive power of nature. Depending on the level of destruction, my curiosity usually makes me do some research and find out more. Through my travels, I meet people from around the world and I try my best to contact them.
