Under better late than never, I suppose, let me inform those of you in the Toronto area of the JET (Japan Exchange & Teaching) Programme art show that will showcase the Japan-inspired artwork of Canadian JET Alumni.
No... I am not participating, but I support the even wholeheartedly! I was a JET in Ohrawara-shi, Tochigi-ken, Japan between 1990-1993, and I pretty much enjoyed every minute of my time in that city!
The theme this year is "Friendship" and JET will have a variety of artwork on display for your viewing pleasure.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre Relief Fund in continuing support of our friends in Japan.
