Yet I Still Dare To Hope
Yet I still DARE to HOPE is a photo exhibition that tells stories of hope amid the carnage that followed the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan’s northern coastline on 11 March 2011. It focuses on the experiences of ordinary people from the town of Shichigahama, in Miyagi prefecture, bringing home the human impact of the disaster. Photographs are accompanied by written narrative from Shichigahama residents who experienced the earthquake.
HYPER JAPAN visitors can take in the Yet I still DARE to HOPE exhibition everyday at the event. Other charity-related events include a brilliant charity raffle, to be held at the end of each day. Prizes for the raffle will be announced very soon. HYPER JAPAN is all about supporting the regions and peoples affected by the Tohoku Pacific earthquake - while having a great time as well. 10% of all net ticket revenue as well as one third of all sponsorship funding will be donated to the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund. We're calling this "Genki Giving". Genki means energy, vitality and enthusiasm - that's what HYPER JAPAN hopes to help bring back to the devastated Tohoku region. So help us help Japan by coming to HYPER JAPAN and having a great time "genki" giving!
