Japanese Minister's Commendation to the Croatian Origami Society

10. lipnja 2021. je vrlo poseban dan za mene i naše origami društvo. Rad i nastojanja naše origami zajednice doživjeli su visoko priznanje, a mi smo bili dirnuti i počašćeni prijemom u Japanskoj rezidenciji u Zagrebu. Hrvatsko origami društvo (HOD) dobilo je priznanje Ministra vanjskih poslova Japana.

10th of June 2021 is a very special day for me and our origami society. Work and strivings of our origami community have been recognized and we were touched and honoured by the reception at the Japanese residence in Zagreb. The Croatian Origami Society (HOD) received the Commendation from the Japanese Minister for Foreign Affairs.

 

Svečanost uručenja Priznanja otvorila je veleposlanica Japana, gospođa Kanji Misako, a prigodni govor su održali gospođa Iva Mostarčić iz Ministarstva kulture, gospodin veleposlanik Dražen Margeta iz MVEP-a te predsjednica HOD-a, gospođa Sanja Srbljinović Čuček. 

The Commendation ceremony was opened by the Ambassador of Japan, Ms Kanji Misako, and a speech was given by Ms Iva Mostarčić from the Ministry of Culture, Mr Dražen Margeta from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the President of the HOD, Ms Sanja Srbljinović Čuček.

 

Hrvatskom origami društvu ukazana je iznimna čast što smo izabrani za dodjelu Priznanja ministra vanjskih poslova Japana. Sretni smo što je naš rad na popularizaciji origamija pomogao u promicanju japanske kulture u Hrvatskoj. Na japanskim događanjima naše origami društvo uvijek je bilo dobrodošao gost, a mi smo uživali graditi origami mostove u znanosti, umjetnosti i obrazovanju, spajati kulture i ljude. Vjerujemo da će s ovim priznanjem naša suradnja s Veleposlanstvom Japana te hrvatskim znanstvenim, obrazovnim i kulturnim institucijama još više ojačati, a nama je to veliko ohrabrenje u našem daljnjem radu i nastojanjima.

It has been an exceptional honour for the Croatian Origami Society to receive the Japanese Foreign Minister's Commendation. We are glad that our work on popularizing origami has helped promote Japanese culture in Croatia. At Japanese events, our origami society has always been a welcome guest, and we have enjoyed building origami bridges in science, art and education, connecting cultures and people. We believe that this Commendation will further enhance our cooperation with the Embassy of Japan as well as with the Croatian scientific, educational and cultural institutions. It is great encouragement in our further work and efforts.

Origami za ohrabrenje - Origami for Encouragement



“Što vam je teže, to se više morate igrati,“ podijelio je s nama znanstveni inženjer John Cohn u svom TEDx govoru. Promišljajući TED govor pionira istraživanja igre, dr. Stuarta Browna Igra je više od zabave”,  odlučila sam pružiti priliku za igru papirom dijeleći svoje dijagrame. Iskoristila sam vrijeme naše karantene da dijagramiram po jedan origami model dnevno i objavim na Facebooku Hrvatskog origami društva i svom LinkedInu.  Tu ih je nekoliko.

“The harder it gets, the harder you have to play,“ shared with us the engineer scientist John Cohn in his TEDx talk. Having in mind the TED talk by a pioneer in research on play, Dr. Stuart Brown “Play is more than fun”, I decided to offer some opportunities to play with paper by sharing my diagrams. I used my pandemic lockdown time to diagram one origami model a day, and post it on Croatian Origami Society's Facebook and my LinkedIn. Here are some of them.
