Our Words, Our Songs 〜Let’s compose poems out of our words〜


Date:2023 February 23rd (14:00〜16:00)

Capacity: 10 people (Anybody can join us)

Fee: 1000 yen


Our Words, Our Songs was born out of the collaborative ABC Mail Project created by Kano Ikegami, artist Yuko Kanamori, and photographer Toshie Kusamoto. On a postcard, participants wrote down words for each letter of the alphabet and sent it back to us via snail mail. Kano takes the words from an individual’s postcard and weaves them together in the form of a poem. Come join us as we use the words of others to compose a song – and create a polyphonic body of work.
