Write a summary of your Event (100 words or more)

I am going to talk about three things in my presentation. The first part is my experience. I have been practicing calligraphy since I was a kindergarten student. There are a lot of good points of learning calligraphy, so I would like to share with everyone. The second part is some instruction on the tools of calligraphy in English. In the third section, I will talk about traditional calligraphy and art calligraphy. The fourth part is different calligraphy styles in the world. The calligraphy culture is not only for Japan but also in other countries, so I would like to talk about it.


What do you want your audience to gain from your Event (50 words or more)

I hope audience can know about Japanese culture more and be interested in the culture. When I studied abroad, I could not explain Japanese culture even though I am Japanese. It was not my English problem. It made me so embarrassed. That is why I felt that it is important to know Japanese culture.


What do you want to gain from doing your Event? (50 words or more)

I realized that I did not know some vocabulary which is related to calligraphy even tough I have been practicing calligraphy, so I would like to know about calligraphy deeply. In addition to that, I would like to improve my speaking skill more. I am not good at speaking in public, so I would like to practice it by this event.
