In May of 2015… sacred site of the Shingon Buddhist sect Mt Koya Ekoin Temple…
an unusual art event took place…

JAZZ KOYA

The venue: the Ekoin Temple at Mt Koya.
Held at the Ajikan dōjō, a place open to all for contemplation and Zen meditation.
(Ajikan is a form of meditation practised in Shingon Esoteric Buddhism. Read more here)

Here, men and women from all countries, and of all ages ~ from 4 to 70 years old ~ have gathered to engage with the monks' mantras, accompanied by contrabass and synthesizers, through 'rakugaki art'.
A truly unique experience.
Everyone sits and listens to the sounds with closed eyes.

And then, hands holding pens and crayons begin to spontaneously move and draw on the white paper before them.
A total of 45 pieces…

"We pray peace from Mt.KOYA" is a collage of rakugaki drawings and paintings, based on the themes of 'hometown' and 'peace', made by children in Uganda and Cambodia, and those created that day of a compassion that transcends age, race and borders.

This Unissograff artwork, as a form of 'meditation rakugaki art', demonstrates our ability to vanquish the borders that we perceive between ourselves.

"We pray peace from Mt.KOYA" is an artistic interpretation of its theme, the ad-lib session "JAZZ KOYA".

Terra Renaissance logo image

Unissograff™ generates funding to support the education and well-being of children in the minefield villages of Cambodia, and the social rehabilitation of young people who were engaged as child soldiers in the civil conflicts of Uganda.

Currently all donations generated by artwork created from the rakugaki drawings made by children in Cambodia and Uganda are made to Terra Renaissance, an officially certified NPO organisation based in Kyoto which stations its people on the ground in the Kingdom of Cambodia and the Republic of Uganda to actively support the people of these aforementioned areas.

This way we know that our donations are 100% used for the purpose with which they were intended, supporting the areas they were intended for.

Certified NPO Terra Renaissance was established in October 2001 with the aim of "realizing a society (world peace) where all lives can exist in safety and peace".

Cambodia art class

Terra, means "earth" in Latin, while Renaissance refers to "regeneration, reconstruction" in English. The name "Terra Renaissance" therefore represents "revival and revitalisation."

They aim to address the four issues of "land mines", "small weapons", "child soldiers", and "peace education" by simultaneously operating international cooperation at sites around the world while conducting enlightenment and proposal activities in Japan.

[Donations generated by Tohoku artwork]

NPO Baby smile logo image

The origins of Unissograff™ can be found in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake which occurred on 11th March 2011 and we continue to donate to charities that work tirelessly to support mothers and children that are still affected even now, some ten years on.

Some of these donations are made to NPO Baby Smile Ishinomaki, who jointly managed Rakugaki Art workshops with Unisograff in Ishinomaki, Miyagi prefecture.

Baby smile Ishinomaki is an aid organisation formed for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami by a mother of two who was herself a victim of the disaster, having experienced the horrors while still pregnant with her second baby (her older child was only two years old at the time).

Initially, right after the disaster, their aid focused on providing support to the pregnant women and mothers with babies up to pre-school age who were living in neighbouring area of Ishinomaki, a coastal fishing town in Miyagi prefecture which suffered devastating damage.
They continue today, offering emotional and parenting support for mothers in the region, many of whom remain in temporary housing, who are still affected by those traumatic events and the hardships that followed.
