In February 2020 the friendship through music programme Japan - Northern Ireland began. There are many collaborative elements and a very ambitious vision. 

The lead partners are Min-On 民主音楽協会-民音 & Research Institute Japan and Beyond Skin. The partnership is a legacy outcome from Anne O'Donoghue Arts Council of Northern Ireland award. Anne O’Donoghue’s legacy is significant joining the Play Resource Warehouse in 1984 where she remained as a committed director for thirty years championing Community Arts practice.
