O-matsuri! Summer Recycle Series

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan

The kitsune mask has often been seen in Japanese folktales as a symbolic figure of fun and trickery – a perfect fit for the start of summer. Once you have finished your mask, head on over to the auditorium for a lesson in awa odori, a traditional Japanese dance that welcomes the ancestors back to our world.

This is the first of three recycle events that will take place at the JICC this summer to celebrate O-matsuri (festival) season. Please bring your own (labeled) scissors, paper bags for masks, and other recyclable paper products for decoration. The JICC will NOT be collecting your unused products.

Materials: scissors, paper bags (mask), recyclable paper products (decoration)
