Proposal

Idea pitch

‘What’s your wish for Europe?’
Our plan is to organize a Maneki Neko creativity event in each of the 47 European countries. Each participant will be given a maneki neko template to draw her or his own wish(es) for Europe. The drawing will be organized in group sessions, where at least 200 people will come together, have fun and express uniquely their creativity. At the end of each session the maneki neko artworks will be put together in an ‘Artwork of the Artworks’.

Where will your idea take place?

European Countries

Why does Europe need your idea?

Europe still remains an abstract and distant topic for most of us. In bonding different people in a pan European art project will give people the opportunity to express their own views and reality on Europe in a creative and unique manner.

What is your impact?

Bringing joy one maneki neko at a time.
Only joy can bring positive effects and changes in the world.
The formation of Europe gave us the chance to live in peace and overcome century old rivalries. This project shall display the enormous development from Europe towards more unity, towards more strength, towards more humanity, after so many years of wars and turmoil. This project is a symbol that something much larger is possible within Europe independently from size, backgrounds and beliefs.

How do you get there?
