First launched in 2011, SHIBUKARU MATSURI is a cultural event that features young female creators based mainly in Tokyo. The event was held four times in the past in Shibuya, Tokyo, as a new place for young female creators to express their talent and creativity. SHIBUKARU MATSURI was held in Bangkok, Thailand, with the help from the cooperation fund to assist in the event, which had successfully reached the target figure through Booster, an incubate crowd funding run by PARCO. The event featured especially popular and highly praised female creators who took part in previous events and were selected from a total of more than 800 female creators based in Tokyo and a total of 17 artists selected by Practical Design Studio, a design studio based in Bangkok, Thailand, showcasing female creators who played a key role in leading the art culture of Thailand in future. Spanning the genres of flat surface, three-dimensional, video artwork, and fashion, the goal of the event is to introduce the creativity of women from Shibuya, Tokyo, in an exhibition of their art by teaming up with local female creators in Bangkok, Thailand. This event was held with the desire to cast the seeds of the girls’ culture launched from Shibuya, Tokyo, to Bangkok and to boost the creation of a new culture from the interaction of creators from both cities, while aimed to provide the stimulus for female creators to go abroad from Japan.
