Event: Going to Tokyo – Danish Japanese creative exchange program 2018

As a follow up on a range of “How to Japan” events held in Copenhagen, ayanomimi has coordinated a 3-days tour where designers get the chance to get inside leading creative companies in Tokyo. The purpose is to create a deep understanding about the Japanese design scene and the market for design. What does it mean ‘to design’ in Japan? How is the process of working with a Japanese client? What are the challenges as a professional? What are the Japanese clients looking for? What are the possibilities for co-creation?

The market for Danish-Japanese collaboration is changing and ayanomimi belives that the future calls for new approaches and partners on the field. This trip is a first step in a long term plan of creating a future platform for creative exchange between Denmark and Japan.
