Vision, Voice, Place.

Friday 17th – Monday 20th March

We’re happy to announce the first Esin workshop of this year in collaboration with Intercross Creative Centre in Sapporo.


Vision, Voice and Place – In order to create something extraordinary, all three of these elements need to work together.

Through a series of projects that look at each of these aspects, Dirk van Dooren (Co-founder, Tomato), Steve Martin (Co-founder and director, Eat Creative) and Toru Yoshikawa (Founder, Ribbonesia) will help participants develop their creative thinking to produce more focused and exciting work. The four-day residential workshop takes place at the picturesque Geimori-studio, outside of Sapporo.

This is an opportunity for anyone who wishes to stretch some creative muscles, share ideas and challenges with participants from a range of different fields.
