I had the good fortune to meet Dinh Chau-Kieckhafer, the founder of a US-based arts non-profit called Think&Wonder, this past summer. Her organization emphasizes collaboration and cultural exchange, and thanks to her work, Third Space Tokyo has been connected to a high school animation class in Nevada. Participants in the Story Making 5-class series (our "Japan team") are currently preparing characters, settings, and plots to submit to the "US team" by the end of November. This is a challenge and rare opportunity for a small group of 8-12 year olds in Tokyo! We look forward to "meeting" the US team through video chat as the collaboration continues.
