Defying Tradition: Japanese Women Who Changed the World

1:00pm – 7:00pm

This series of illustrations profiles thirty of the most influential and inspirational Japanese women in both modern and ancient times. From Murasaki Shikibu, the world’s first novelist, and Komako Kimura, a prominent early 1900s suffragist, to pop culture star Naomi Watanabe, who is rapidly changing the perception of body image in Japan and beyond—these women are highlighted and celebrated for the ways they have shaped and will continue to shape their country.

Geri Coady is a Canadian illustrator, designer, and author living and working in Nottingham, UK. In addition to working for clients as a freelance illustrator since 2013, she creates original artwork, enamel pins, stationery and other products and sells both online and at Japan-related events in the UK. She expresses her passion for Japan through illustration and aims to share her work with like-minded Japan lovers worldwide.

There will be a reception and a Q+A from 6pm – 9pm on the 28th if you would like to meet the artists and discuss the work further.
