Happy New Year from TOMODACHI!

With the holiday season come and gone, TOMODACHI is looking back at what a fantastic year we’ve had with you all in 2015. We’ve hosted a number of awesome art exhibitions like our “TOMODACHI x MT Tape” event and our collaboration with the Envision fashion show this fall, along with various workshops and events with companies like San-X. Special thanks goes out to Public Functionary and all artists for helping out with some of our events throughout the year like the MT Tape exhibition, Envision Fashion show; Public Functionary has been a huge help in getting the word out to local and international artists and fans, and have helped make this year’s events bigger and better than ever! 2015 has been an amazing year at TOMODACHI, and we’re sad to see it go. However, the end of a year is also the start of the next, so we’d like to wish all of you a happy New Year! 2016 is going to be an exciting time for all of us, so we can’t wait to see what the coming months will hold for us and for all of our fans and friends. We hope that everyone had a happy and safe holiday season these past few weeks, and that we’ll all have a happy new year to come!
