The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum Renovation Memorial Ceremony was held. The TOBIRA candidates stood with the Memorial Ceremony staff in the reception area and handed out art connectors (for details, please refer to the April 14, 2012 posting) to all those in attendance.
The TOBIRA candidates put art connectors around each person’s neck. There were some who felt a little uncomfortable, but everyone wore the art connectors cheerfully.
During the Ceremony and the party afterwards, everyone participated wearing their art connectors. The communication that arises from everyone putting on the same thing and sharing the same space is relaxing even amidst the glitz. It was a very pleasant time.
At the party, Katsuhiko Hibino explained the art connectors and talked about the activities of the TOBIRA Project going forward. What’s more, the TOBIRA candidates appeared carrying buckets. Inside were four types of additional rare pins.
The TOBIRA candidates had great success when they took the buckets with the rare pins inside and distributed them to everyone. The pins generated many conversations.
After the Memorial Ceremony, we had a quick review meeting with Katsuhiko Hibino in the project room. With a little creativity, there was a slight change in awareness. This resulted in a valuable experience that generated significant communication. TOBIRAs, you did an excellent job at your first big task! (Itō)
