The ongoing corona pandemic is causing financial shortages for many artists. At the same time, we all miss art and its performances! In these difficult times, we would like to support art and artists alike; at the same time, humbly contributing to intercultural understanding and social responsibility by raising awareness of Japanese and German culture.
DJW provides its platform for the presentation of art in virtual space, and we invite our members to financially support performances by artists of their choice. Details of the artist's fee are subject to the direct agreement of the sponsor with him/her. Please see the details on the procedure explained in our info pool.

Yvonne's memorable and emotive performances have drawn and stirred audiences and she has also shared the stage with Patti Griffin, Karine Polwart, Karen Matheson, Luka Bloom, Steve Forbert, IONA and Juliet Turner.
