PHILOSOPHER'S PHOTOS

PROFILE

Mayu00110

My name is Mayu. Born in Tokyo, based in Sydney and often between places on planes, cars, foot, trains and subways.

Story telling is my art and craft. I often work site specifically with communities, and collaborate with artists and creators from all genres. I write plays, blogs and poetry; create installations, performances, documentaries and radio programs; produce art projects, oral history programs and seminars; facilitate community workshops and arts projects; take photographs, make video and audio installations; research, interview and assist others to tell their stories. I draw during my spare time.

Some of my activities include being a board member of The Koto Music Institute of Australia, on the management committee of Living with Our Dead, and a founding member of Nikkei Australia.

I like to expand my mind and horizons, swim, listen, play and laugh; endeavour to be receptive and open; listen mindfully and with humility; and would like to be of service for the betterment of humanity and for world peace.
