Encounter with Creation

There are people who create.

People who express themselves through poetry, painting, and sound. They are called poets, painters, musicians, etc.

but before that, as a human being and an artist

They have moved people's hearts as human beings and artists. They have also been moved by someone else to create. They have expanded their creativity through encounters with poems, pictures, sounds, people, and opportunities. However, encounters are not always planned. It is chance encounters that have given birth to new works of art in ways that are unimaginable. Chance encounters connected, moved people's hearts, and propelled people forward. By highlighting such small creative opportunities, or "encounters," we hope to trigger the next small creative opportunity. We hope that this concert will also be a small trigger of creation, a chance encounter for everyone.
