.: Event Mission Statement

The cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki experienced the Atomic bomb in 1945. The two cities are now offering Atomic Bomb poster exhibits for public display to every state in the U.S. through the end of 2008. 

The Arizona traveling exhibit, “Hiroshima Calling” is sponsored by the World Youth Visit Exchange Association of Arizona (WYVEAA), a 501(c) (3) organization, in partnership with Ken Koshio Project. Hiroshima Calling will travel to five different locations across the state of Arizona from October through November, 2008. 

The Indigenous Preservation Society of Hiroshima, a traditional taiko music group founded by Itsuki Munakata, will accompany the posters adding a unique, artistic and historic perspective to the exhibit.  Mr. Munakata is a survivor (Hibakusha) of the Atomic bomb - he was just 6 years old at the time. Mr. Munakata will bring 3 members of his taiko troupe from Japan to share stories, art, traditional taiko music and Hiroshima tunes with the people of Arizona.  There will be many highlights along the way, including a unique collaboration with Native American and Arizona artists near the Grand Canyon.   It is important to note that Mr. Munakata is a well known Shinto Priest and NOH artist, recognized across Japan. 

This traveling exhibit, including the art and music performances, will be full of life and will captivate audiences. Please come to see this exhibit and share this experience. For more information, please contact Ken Koshio at: 602-412-7781 or kenkoshio@hotmail.com
