Launch: JACCU 2023 Entaku Meetings Introduction

JACCU Art Platform has an exciting new project for 2023: a series of Entaku Meetings for artists, makers and creators whose work relates to Japan. Are you that curious spirit who is looking to connect with other people in the field of art and culture? Or perhaps you have some art- and business-related questions and could use some support and advice? In that case, keep on reading!

Support for Japanese Arts

JACCU offers help in creating opportunities and support for artists and makers to meet, engage, share and gain knowledge and experience. 

Entaku means roundtable in Japanese. There are many matters to discuss in the art sector and it is important that we support each other to strengthen the society of Japanese arts in the Netherlands. We will gather and talk about what we need to learn, how to improve, how to widen our network and gain exposure and so on. We aim to improve the quality of these gatherings with the contribution of the participants, and build a strong community around Japanese arts in the Netherlands.

How it started

Our first artists’ meeting took place during the Manga and Japanese Culture Week in 2022. We met with 8 professional artists at the Neude Libraryoffering all the attendees a chance to meet each other, talk and exchange ideas. This gathering generated so much interest that it sparked us at JACCU to offer these opportunities on a more frequent and regular basis.

From ideas to actions

The Entaku meetings – which will take place in Utrecht bi-monthly – serve as an opportunity for Japanese artists, non-Japanese creatives with a Japan-related art form, and creative sector professionals to gather and engage in a plenty of activities from brainstorming and networking to creating dialogue on Japanese arts and culture in the Netherlands. We all work together, JACCU and the artists, new ideas are born and we follow up on them in a beautiful creative circle.

First Entaku Meeting in March

We are holding the first meeting at the Noda Café, in Neude Library, on the 3rd of March. In the first half  hour, Hiroko Matsushita and Masaru Saito will introduce the Entaku Meetings series and their content and purpose.
