Kids meet 02
Workshop "Omoitsuki no KOE to IRO"
The "Kids meet" series of children’s programs creates opportunities for children of diverse backgrounds to meet by change, encounter things they could never have imagined, and talk to each other through art experiences. Our aims are for these experiences to broaden the way children see the world and expand their worlds, and to draw out in the children a rich imagination that respects diverse values.
This event is part of the "Kids meet" program that creates opportunities for children from diverse backgrounds to encounter serendipitous and unimaginable things through experiencing art, and to engage in dialogue. For the program’s second session, two instructors—Kojima Hijiri and Hiramatsu Asa from "Omoitsuki no KOE to IRO"—will collaboratively create and perform a picture-story show with participants, combining a story especially written for the workshop with children’s drawings.

"Omoitsuki no KOE to IRO" started spontaneously.
The time it takes to keep an idea in your mind and shape it by adding voices and colors is filled with excitement.
The process of creating is the most precious time.
Sometimes alone, sometimes as a pair, sometimes with everybody.
It is a laboratory of voices and colors initiated by Kojima Hijiri and Hiramatsu Asa.
Mainly using the format of the kamishibai picture-story show, they present works irregularly and spontaneously.
Born in Tokyo. Alongside her regular appearances in films, Kojima Hijiri has also received acclaim recently as a stage actor and performed in many plays by high-profile directors, developing new appeal as an actor. She is the author of Wild Berry Jam (2018, Seigensha).
Born in Tokyo. Mainly working with oil painting, Hiramatsu Asa presents her artworks at exhibitions. She paints the landscapes that exist inside her, depicting mindscapes through the motif of clouds. Hiramatsu also writes for and illustrates magazines and books.

The picture-show story created with the children during the workshop will be filmed and made available online. Though based on the same original source, the story will mysteriously transform as children’s voices (“koe”) and colors (“iro”) are added each session. Enjoy the warmth of the handmade picture-show story and the world of everyone’s Omoitsuki no KOE to IRO.
