Haiku is a collaborative project developed by Gavin Parry and David Penny (Anatomy Projects) and Naomi Kashiwagi. Portraits made with a Victorian audio camera and still life photographs of origami meditatively made during pre-shoot, aim to capture a performative ritual. The act of photographing becomes a meeting point, where rituals, non-verbal communication and mutual trust in the process come into play.

Great art and culture for everyone sets out a 10-year vision for the Arts Council, with five ambitious goals at its heart. Originally published in 2010, this 2013 update reflects the Arts Council’s newly expanded remit for museums and libraries. 

We believe there is more we can do together to nurture and champion talented artists and cultural practitioners, and promote England as an international artistic and cultural centre. This updated publication reiterates our commitment to deepening the value and impact of the work we support.

Naomi’s response to “what can art do” was selected by Arts Council England to be included in their 10 year vision, Great Art for Everyone and also in their 10 year strategic framework Great Art and Culture for Everyone 2010 – 2020.’:

The arts have the potential to show that the everyday can be reinvented and that the ordinary is usually extraordinary and that the extraordinary can become part of, or intervene and wonderfully interrupt everyday life – Naomi Kashiwagi (2009)

Tillt Europe – Creative Clash is a European policy grouping of two intermediary organisations Tillt (Sweden) and c2+i (Spain), the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB) and the Brussels-based research and advisory company KEA. This grouping has been created in 2009 to promote cooperation and links between the arts and organisations (private and public). Tillt Europe – Creative Clash advocates interactions between the arts and organisations in the form of “artistic interventions’’, when artists, artefacts or practices from the world of arts enter organisations (businesses, public institutions, associations, NGO, etc.) in order to support or accompany changes, stimulate creativity and innovation, as well as to improve working conditions and skills development.
