We ran EGAKU for the grade 3 students of Denenchofufutaba Senior High School for the second year in a row. 

As part of their graduate project presentation on "The 26 Year-Old Me" their teacher came up with the idea of integrating EGAKU into the process, allowing students the opportunity to engage in deeper introspection and self-examination.

Again, this year the program was split into two parts to fit into the class time. The first session took place at the school and the second part at 9201 Gallery. Across the two sessions students meditated on their future selves "The 26 Year-Old Me" through a process of internal dialogue, as well as a dialogue with others. The creations that emerged were unique and beautiful, powerful messages of encouragement and hope to their future selves.
