IFAC supports the visual arts through sponsoring the annual International High School Arts Festival in Japan and working together with the British Museum seeking to share the rich culture of Japan with millions of visitors from around the world each year since 2013.
For the past two decades, Japan’s International High School Arts Festival has created the opportunity for senior high school students to showcase their outstanding creative talent on a global platform.
IFAC and the British Museum have held a special partnership, working together towards the mutual aim of championing the art and culture of Japan, and sharing its beauty.
IFAC and the British Museum have been working together since 2013, seeking to share the rich culture of Japan with visitors from around the world.
The IFAC Handa Curator of Japanese Arts is at the heart of this endeavour: curating displays in the recently reopened Mitsubishi Corporation Japanese Galleries; working on major exhibitions including the critically and publically acclaimed Hokusai: beyond the great wave (2017) as well as Manga (2019); and facilitating the acquisition of important Japanese artworks. The Museum was also host to Captivating Calligraphy in November 2014, a special event supported by IFAC to celebrate the exceptional craft and the work of Dr Haruhisa Handa.
