We have organized movie shows and concerts in Goto City, Nagasaki Prefecture. In Goto City, there are not many people or organizations that plan cultural activities, and people living there have least access to such cultural stimulations. We are an organization established by volunteers for cultural improvement of our Goto City. The movies we have shown in the past were “Herb & Dorothy,” “BOX - The Hakamada Case” and “Pecoross’ Mother and her Days” with a mini-concert of Mr. Yuichi Okano, who is the original author of “Pecoross’ Mother and her Days.” We also organized some concerts with musicians living in Goto and Mr. OKI, an Ainu Tonkori player, and Hakase-san. We held a peace concert to help Mr. Iwao Hakamada, who is a victim of false accusation, as well. At a space named “Tayutau,” a base of Bakara, we also conduct art brut exhibitions and various workshops.
