The Wabi-Sabi Collective

Wabi-Sabi Collective - Toronto, Canada

A playful immersion in the wabi-sabi aesthetic and architecture of Renku -- the collaborative linked verse popularized by the Japanese poet Matsuo Basho in the late 1700s, from which modern Haiku evolved.

Then add your own verse or wish to the branches of our Tanabata-style Haiku tree and overnight the leaves will multiply and become a collaborative work of memory by morning.

Projects by the Toronto-based Wabi-Sabi Collective explore and cultivate the aesthetics of wabi-sabi through community engagement in the arts.
