Supporting "Climate Museum: Life and Death of Our Home," a Special Exhibition at the Seoul Museum of Art (South Korea)
Epson Korea Co., Ltd. (EKL), using an Epson laser projector, contributed to the projection of works of art in a special exhibit held at the Seoul Museum of Art from June to August 2020. The exhibit featured works with a strong environmental message urging action on environmental destruction and climate change, and was run in an environmentally friendly way to minimize waste and carbon emissions. The works were presented as powerful images on the theme of plastic-polluted seas and creatures that have lost their habitat. The thought-provoking exhibit prompted visitors to think about the environmental crisis.
Supporting the Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival (Japan)
Seiko Epson has continuously served as a special corporate sponsor of the annual Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival (originally the Saito Kinen Festival Matsumoto) since its inception, in 1992. The festival was organized to promote music and the arts as well as to contribute to the education and development of youth. (In 2020 and 2021, the festival was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)
In addition to regular concerts during the festival's run, there are special events geared toward children, including musicales and an opera. To date, invitations have been extended to 13,000 sixth-graders and seventh-graders in Nagano prefecture. This education program provides a valuable opportunity for the children to see young musicians perform and to hear live orchestra music, thus serving as a catalyst for interest in classical music.
