What is the Theme?
This year’s theme is “Encounters with another World”.
Discovering new and unfamiliar ‘worlds’ can greatly enrich the creative process. Whether
these new worlds exist in a different country, within your local community, in the maze of the Internet, or even simply inside one’s own mind, their physical shape is of little importance. What is important is to allow yourself to look outside the everyday and find new territories in which to plant and nurture your imagination.

When is the journey to Japan and how long is it?

The trip is two weeks long and runs from 15 November – 1 December 2015.
