global:local is an initiative that promotes good design and local crafts from the world’s competence regions – here from Asahikawa, Japan. global:local is an idea and initiative by Wolf U. Wagner and mentor Minoru Nagahara (deceased 2016). The idea of global:local has developed further in Japan and is to be understood as the mother of numerous support programmes between SME and creatives. The cooperation between approx. 30 German and Japanese participants was presented in Germany in the context of several exhibitions (e.g. IMM Cologne, The Squaire Airport Frankfurt) as well as in Tokyo and Asahikawa.
