Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan, 2011

At Broadsided, we believe that art and literature belong in our daily lives. We believe they are not just decoration, but essential communication. They inspire and they demonstrate the vitality and depth of our connection with the world.

Moved by the plight of post-tsunami Japan and the Fukushia disaster, Broadsided artist Yuko Adachi sent us the image “Love Heals Japan” and asked if we would help her find writing to accompany it. We were inspired by her idea, and decided to ask other Broadsided artists if they had been similarly moved and, if so, if they’d be willing to share their work.

We posted that art, and asked writers to respond. Below are the collaborations that resulted, as well as a short note from the writers and artists about this process. We hope that you will download, print, and share these with your community.

Yuko created a high-quality print of her collaboration and sell it on her Etsy site. All proceeds were given to the relief effort in Japan.
