Little Penguin Cup

Little Penguin Cup

Henry Jock Walker

Little Penguin Cup is a surf and skate art community project run by Australian surf artist Henry Jock Walker, to take place in September at three locations in Japan’s Kanto area.

In each location, there will be a range of creative activities aimed to attract, interact and engage with a wide range of participants.

There will be experimental team processes during the workshop, which will be tailored for Japanese audiences. The impact of this ephemeral happening will be ongoing cultural exchange, learning, play and creation through the mediums of surfing, painting and performance.

Please see below for information on venues, and an insight into what experiences you can be a part of.
