The 2nd Urespa Festa, one of the activities of the Urespa Project at Sapporo University, will be held tomorrow October 30, 2011. The Urespa Project provides educational opportunities and support for Ainu students to learn about their culture and aims to build support within the greater community for Ainu activities by involving members of the community, companies, and other stakeholders in their efforts.
AINU PRIDE PRODUCTIONS is working to become one of the Urespa Project's supporters as part of our own efforts to support Ainu charities and community activities. We will keep you updated and provide a more thorough introduction of the Urespa Project soon. In the meantime, check out the Festa!
