The INAMORI Art Project Group of Japan, was established in 2010 by Ms. Noriko Inamori a Japanese housewife with a progressive and incurable disease, (Striatonigral Degeneration, her medical condition is like Parkinson and progresses quickly). Her vision, before she died, was to develop a group of creative artists to deliver her message "I promised myself not to waste my limited time anymore. I questioned myself about what I should use my limited time for and the answer was to devote myself to building a peaceful and safe future for children of the world."
