Get in touch “Warm Blue MAZEKOZE Art II”
Timed to coincide with World Autism Awareness Day designated by the United Nations on April 2, an art exhibition will be held for the second year running on the theme of blue, the concept color for World Autism Awareness Day. This exhibition is sponsored by the general incorporated association Get in touch (Chizuru Azuma, Representative).
Get in touch is an organization that conducts ongoing PR activities with the objective of raising awareness of all minority areas where people are dealing with affliction in life, including autism. The aim of this specific exhibition is to make people aware of prejudice and the fact that individuality comes in a variety of different forms.
The event will showcase the “MAZEKOZE” (jumbled up) works brimming with distinct colors and character produced by many different artists, both with and without disabilities.
