Tokyo Midtown Design Hub 72nd Exhibition
JAGDA Outreach Exhibition Part 1 Masking Tape

From 2018 to 2020, JAGDA will use the power of design to connect to support artists with disabilities and Paralympians over three years. As the first initiative under this program, this exhibition will feature masking tape, an everyday product that “connects” things, created by designers from works by artists with disabilities from the Able Art Company. They will be exhibited and sold for charity over the course of the year, at the Design Hub and other locations throughout Japan. Making use of their skills in this field, JAGDA designers will participate as volunteers. A usage fee will be paid to the artists. All proceeds from sales minus manufacturing costs will be donated to the Paralympians Association of Japan. We hope you will come to the exhibition and find something that you like.
