As a part of GloNet we are running a residency programme between Sendai and Manchester, helping to foster a partnership between the cities and their creative communities.
During May, the Sendai-based design company WOW will attend FutureEverything, participating in GloNet and other strands of the festival.
In October, Manchester-based creatives and companies will visit Sendai to participate in the inaugural Occur festival.
The residency project was initiated after Drew Hemment, Director of FutureEverything, was invited to participate in the Sendai Creative Forum. Read blog posts on the visit here and residency project here.
