“Toozalii” Community Arts International Artists, UK


Toozalii use many different art forms to enable and toprovide social inclusion workshops for minority groups within mainstream arts events around the world. They arelong-term friends and collaborators of WMDF, where (as wellas parading in huge, hand-made puppet costumes) they havebeen represented by the silk flags in Motomachi Park, created from designs made in our own WMDF workshops andother places in Hakodate. Toozalii have exhibited theseflags as the “World’s Eye” project at many locations around the UK, with a total audience of over 100,000. For their efforts on this and on other community involvement works, Toozali gained an audience with the UK Prime Minister inNo.10 Downing Street.
