Supporting Japan-related programs in European Capitals of Culture

Exhibition “Shodo – Japanese art of Calligraphy”


Traditional Culture

Japanese calligraphy enjoys acclaim in Europe. A rich world of experience through the work and workshop of Kumamoto-born calligrapher Tanso Moriyama.

The position of Japanese calligraphy is well established in Europe but there is very little opportunity to see best contemporary artworks like these by Tanso Moriyama commented and explained by one of his students – Sayuri Goto. The exhibition will be placed in the new (still built) house of local division of Public Library of Wroclaw at the main railway station. The division keeps high devotion to Japanese literature. The Director of Japanese Department, Ms. Daria Waszczuk often helps to organize Japanese culture events in Wroclaw. The exhibition will be accompanied by open workshop for wide audience and short intensive course for a small group.
