Partnership Cases 協働事例: Yokohama Civic Gallery Azamino 横浜市民ギャラリーあざみ野

  Yokohama Civic Gallery Azamino has been offering creative art activities for kids, and Free Play Zone is one of the popular ones even babies can engage in. However, some international families newly arrived in Japan told us they have problems booking the seats and wish to have a translation on the website. To open the doors for children from around the globe, SCC translated the flyer and registration form into English and plain Japanese (proofread by certified nonprofit Chiku Gakko), did English narration for the guidance video, and attended on the day to help with their communication in English and plain Japanese.
Since the trial session last year, the number of international families joining the free play zone has increased, and we are glad to know that SCC has bridged the gap. We were also happy to see children and families fully engaged in the activities even though it was such a cold day. The children had a fun time cleaning up the painted window with hot water!
