Matt Miwa and Julie Tamiko Manning of Tashme Productions proudly present Yume. Digital Dreams 

Tashme Productions launches Yume. Digital Dreams 

14 Japanese Canadian artists collaborate to create new digital work! 

As cultural connectors and activists, Tashme Productions is proud to contribute to the national community as Japanese Canadians, showcasing the vibrant contemporary Japanese Canadian art practice to both our community, and a wider Canadian audience!  

14 Professional Artists selected from the Japanese Canadian Artist Directory will collaborate  online, in pairs over 4 months to create exciting New digital Work. 

The Directory, www.japanesecanadianartists.com features rich profiles of Japanese Canadian artists  past and present and is a huge achievement on the part of the Japanese Canadian national community. Like  all community resources, the Directory benefits from continued investment, and project leaders Matt Miwa  and Julie Tamiko Manning are proposing a dynamic opportunity to pair-up 14 of its featured artists to  encounter each other, and to create new, online work collaboratively. Both the bi-monthly process updates  and the outcomes of these experiments will be featured via social media platforms and on our project’s new  website yumedigitaldreams.art (launching February 15th!) which will link directly to the Directory. 

The project welcomes a roster of talented and diverse artists who span generations, artistic disciplines and  who come from all corners of Canada. They are: Baco Ohama (Calgary, AB), Poet/Visual art;  Dawn Obokata (Toronto, ON), Theatre Artist; Hitoshi Sugiyama (Edmonton, AB), Electronic  Music/Flute; Jon Sasaki (Toronto, ON), Multi-Disciplinary Artist; Kayla Isomura (New Westminster,  BC), Photographer; Kunji Ikeda (Calgary, AB), Dance/theatre; Lillian Michiko Blakey, (Newmarket,  ON) Visual Art; Linda Hoffman (Vancouver, BC), Taiko/Interdisciplinary Artist; Michael Fukushima  (Eastern Townships, QC), Filmmaker; Miya Turnbull (Halifax, NS), Visual Art; Noriko Kim  Kobayashi (Surrey, BC), Taiko / Musician; Shion Skye Carter (Vancouver, BC), Experimental Dancer;  Teiya Kasahara (Toronto, ON), Opera; and Will Shintani (Toronto, ON), Visual Artist.

The goal of Yume. Digital Dreams is to grow the national profile of the Directory, transforming it from an  archival hub of cultural knowledge to an active resource of community outreach, exchange and real-time  artistic evolution. The project is unique in that it will share intergenerational, interdisciplinary and cross regional connections and exchanges as the artists negotiate their respective processes towards a final piece in  real time.  

The project runs from February to May. Keep an eye out for an invitation to the final vernissage in mid-May 2022. 

Over the past decade, Tashme Productions has both developed and toured The Tashme Project: The Living  Archives, their signature theatre piece, across the country, broadening and deepening our network of  Japanese Canadian community activists and artists. Yume. Digital Dreams represents the next evolution of  their role in the national Japanese Canadian community and presents yet another opportunity to contribute a  healthy and vitalized dialogue around Japanese Canadian identity and legacy.  

This project would not be possible without a generous grant from the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Now  Fund; and the project is indebted to the National Association of Japanese Canadians’ ACE (Arts, Culture,  Education) Committee who administrates the Japanese Canadian Artist Directory, for their unwavering faith  in our vision and in this project.
