“WORLD FLAGS” will be held!
- カテゴリ / SHIBUYA NEWS
“WORLD FLAGS” is a character project that personifies national flags developed by the World Flags Administration Secretariat (Operation: Digital Entertainment Asset Pte. Ltd.). “World Flag Expo” will take place on November 22nd to December 8th, at Tower Records Shibuya 8F. This exhibition is based on the concept of “Aiming for World Peace.” In addition to panel displays of each character, posting of public works, selling official goods, a talk event with the original authors KamaYamamoto, producers, and voice actor Shintaro Asanuma will take place.
World Flags aims to deliver messages of multicultural understanding and world peace from Japan. Tower Records has a store in Shibuya, the center of cultural transmission in Tokyo. This event came into plan because both parties resonated with the concept. Unlike traditional exhibitions, there are various places where visitors can participate. Part of the exhibition is selected from general public submissions, popular votes for the visitors’ favorite Flag Bearer, World Flags official qualification test, as well as a talk event by the original author, producers, and voice actor Shintaro Asanuma. We are planning to hold an exhibition project where every visitor can participate to create their own experience.
As for the expected number of customers, we expect that 3.000 people will attend this event in 18 days.
Through this event, we aim to convey the appeal of various countries and flags to many visitors across various generations.
What is World Flags?
“World Flags” is a project that characterizes national flags as attractive samurai warriors. The art works are personifications of national flags that can encourage people to learn about various countries, promote understanding of diversity and multiculturalism, and convey the message to “aim for world peace.”
