Pansodan Art Gallery is how we started. But after a few years, we found we needed an event space, for our own exhibitions, readings, showings, and more, so we opened Pansodan Scene, on the next block. We also produce a variety of media, as you can find out our YouTube channel.
Later we thought we would open a restaurant with paintings and historical photographs on the walls, so that people could have more art without going to a gallery, so Pansuriya came into being. After offering much culinary and visual enjoyment over the years, Pansuriya was a non-human casualty in the COVID-19 pandemic.

The concept of open history is that history is created by the combined experience of the people. By involving the public in describing history as reflected in their memories, possessions, experiences, and photographs, the festival-goers understand that history is not a list of dates and events, but is their lives.

Talks about Art & History
There are many ways to approach history, and one is through images. Looking at the changing propaganda images over the decades, or what is shown in advertisements is an engaging way of showing history in the everyday.
