Our website explains our month long community-building sustainable art journey the best. Trust us. :)

THE SCOOP:
We just wrapped our first Kickstarter campaign and successfully raised $10,000 to cover production expenses! This is incredible beyond words. Your support has been simply amazing. THANK YOU.

Because we had so many people wanting to donate but missed the cut off we've decided to extend the opportunity to back our project!!

YOUR SUPPORT OF THE PROJECT NIHON VISION IS STILL INSTRUMENTAL TO OUR SUCCESS!

....
....

Backing Project Nihon at this stage helps us ensure...

....we're not skipping crucial sites in Japan due to tight budget

....publicity reaches as broad a local audience as possible

....the presence of a translator at the Tokyo exhibition

....the presence of photographers at the Tokyo exhibition

...
...

MOST IMPORTANT?


Your support ensures that Project Nihon's sustainable art travel IS SUSTAINABLE. Sustainable artmaking means using found/collected materials. It also means supporting local economies by including small-town, handmade paper, dolls, fabric, small objects and other materials into the larger artwork.

Hence, all financial contributions help us do the best possible artwork -- leading to an even better documentary.

....
....

If our project resonates with you, we'd love to have your participation (on Facebook) and your support (on Kickstarter).

And in exchange for backing us on Kickstarter we're thrilled to shower you with limited edition art swag and a very special copy of our documentary -- director's cut edition.

Thanks for taking the time to check out our vision --

We can't wait to share the art with you!

Yours,
Meghan (artist) + Michael (filmmaker)
sibling collaborators / founders of PROJECT NIHON
