Japanese sister-city to host cultural tent at Carmel Int’l Arts Festival


This fall, Carmel’s sister-city of Kawachinagano, in Osaka, Japan, will send a group of artists and cultural liaisons to participate in the 15th annual Carmel International Arts Festival on Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23 in downtown Carmel.

As part of their participation in the festival, artists will display works in paint and ceramics.  Additionally, a cultural delegation will offer a view of life in their city through pictures, and by demonstrating a Japanese Tea Ceremony.

According to Sister-City Coordinator, Barb Moshier, “Many of the visiting artists from Kawachinagano City recently hosted a group of students from Carmel High School. We hope to reciprocate their kindness and provide them with a taste of Hoosier hospitality.”

Our community is fortunate to have an open exchange of art and knowledge with our Japanese sister-city. As an added legacy, several paintings from children in Kawachinagano City will be featured in the World’s Smallest Children’s Art Gallery on Main Street in Carmel.
