Support from The Sasakawa Foundation

We are proud to announce that the Japanese Art Festival is now receiving funding from the prestigious Sasakawa Foundation.

The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation was established as a result of a visit to London in 1983 by the late Ryoichi Sasakawa during which he met a number of senior British figures to discuss the international situation and, in particular, UK-Japanese relations. It was agreed at these discussions that it would be in the interest of both countries if more could be done to enhance mutual appreciation and understanding of each other’s culture, society and achievements and that a non-governmental, non-profit making body should be established for this purpose.

More information on the Sasakawa Foundation is available via their website here: www.gbsf.org.uk.
