World Origami Days Exhibition

Origami Mini-Exhibition and Movie

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan

Opening Film & Workshop: Friday, October 24th - noon

In celebration of the World Origami Days, the Japan Information and Culture Center, in partnership with OrigamiUSA and Green Fuse Films, is proud to present Origami Fun Night.

The evening will start with a screening of Green Fuse Films' award-winning documentary Between the Folds, directed and produced by Vanessa Gould. The film chronicles the stories of ten fine artists and intrepid theoretical scientists who have abandoned careers and scoffed at hard-earned graduate degrees - all to forge unconventional lives as modern-day paperfolders. As they converge on the unlikely medium of origami, these artists and scientists reinterpret the world in paper, and bring forth a bold mix of sensibilities towards art, expressiveness, creativity and meaning.

The film will be followed by an origami workshop, inviting guests of all ages to try their hands at the art of paperfolding. There will also be a chance to view mini origami exhibition put together by the JICC, which will include all types of origami and a table for visitors to test their skills.

Join the Origami Fun Night for a creative adventure of learning the vast world of origami!
