We strive to make anime art, in all its forms, accessible to those who are new and unfamiliar with the
style. Through the following activities and events, we are giving communities the opportunity
to enrich their schools, organizations, and individuals with anime art and the vibrant
Japanese culture that inspired it.
PAST & PRESENT ACTIVITIES: Thanks to a generous donation of space from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Florida and supplies to build our gallery from North Central Florida YMCA, the museum began displaying anime artwork and offering educational programs. In addition to attracting regular visits, guest book signatures, e-mail list sign-ups, and the interest of local schools and students, the museum hosted tours for special interest clubs (anime and sci-fi) and schools, and led countless free workshops and classes. The museum continues to offer free one-hour workshops, tours, and classes. The museum is expanding its reach by offering classes and workshops locally and online.
GUIDED TOURS: Admission into the museum is free and upon request, one of our receptionists will provide a guided tour for your group. The museum has welcomed schools and clubs into our gallery, followed a free drawing workshop.
SCHOOL VISITS: We are more than happy to bring our educational presentations to schools and clubs. We are extremely thankful and humbled to have been invited to Oak Hall School in Gainesville, FL for a one-hour presentation and Q&A.
CONVENTION SPEAKING: It is our pleasure to attend convention panels and speak about anime. We specialize in educating on the cultural, ideological, and artistic aspects of anime. The museum’s own ED, Carmen Marrero-Akin, recently attended the Fandomonium Convention hosted by the Alachua County Library in Gainesville, FL.
