This output was organised as part of the Japan 2001 festival, a celebration of the culture and lifestyle of Japan, involving events across the UK between May 2001 and March 2002. The festival was a joint venture by the Japanese and British Ministries of Culture. The chairman of the festival, Sir Peter Parker, personally invited Hamano to participate and a range of new works by the artist (prints, paintings, calligraphic works, performance pieces and sculptures) were curated by the Ryu, as a solo touring show. The resulting project, ‘Zen: Toshihiro Hamano’ was an example of the Ryu’s work in fostering links between Japan and the UK. Parker’s text, written for the catalogue documenting the exhibition, notes the facilitation of study and professional opportunities undertaken by the Ryu Association at Northumbria. The reseach for this project was undertaken by Nagai and Onishi, who were all based at Northumbria at the time. Since 2002, Oshima has been the lead-artist for the Ryu in the UK and this output represented the background for her paper at the Third International Diversity Conference: Cultural Diversity in a globalizing World (February 2003) at the East-West Centre, University of Hawaii, Manoa, This conference was hosted by RMIT Globalism Institute in partnership with the Globalisation Research Centre at the University of Hawaii and Common Ground Conferences. Oshima’s paper described the Ryu’s cultural engagement with the NE region of England and their home province in the southwest of Japan. She then explored the role of regional cultures within the larger, global frame associated with the notion ‘East/West’ and the educational functions of fine art research at the Northumbria in relation to the role of artist’s groups within the social diversity of regional cultures
