IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

We all have experiences that we carry with us that may make us feel broken, but we each carry those broken pieces in different ways. 

Kintsugi teaches us that through the process of repairing the cracks between our broken pieces, we build resilience and strength. Our beauty shines through the cracks that might be perceived as weakness. How do we heal? How do we honor the strength within the imperfect parts of ourselves?

Japanese Arts Network is proudly partnering with the McNichols Civic Center Building and Denver Arts & Venues to bring our Colorado community opportunities to learn about ways to find peace and healing through the arts while exploring multiple ways of finding beauty in imperfection. Kintsugi: The Art of Healing, Finding Beauty in Repair is part of Denver Arts & Venues Cultural Partner Program.

The Japanese art of kintsugi teaches us how to see the beauty in the reinvention of ourselves.  This healing process makes us stronger than before and where we once felt weakened, we radiate with resilience. We invite you to share how you embody kintsugi in your own life by posting images and/or videos on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #IAmNotBroken and #KintsugiDenver.
