International Paana Uchiwa Fan Project
After the success of the last four years' International Uchiwa Projects, we are back to make another uchiwa for NEWS' WORLDISTA Tour.
Why an Uchiwa?
As many of you will know, the best way to express your thoughts or feelings at a concert is through the use of an uchiwa. For those who don't know, Uchiwa's are the Japanese style Fans that are either sold at venues (with the members picture on them), or are handmade to display personal messages to the members.
When making their own uchiwa, fans often put their emotions, thoughts and feelings into each design, displaying this to the members.
With this in mind, our aim is to use this opportunity to create an uchiwa that showcases the hearts of NEWS fans all over the world. With the help of international paanas, the uchiwa will be designed, made and then taken to a concert during the upcoming concert tour.
A standard jumbo uchiwa base has two sides, however, only one side can be shown at one time (obviously). The intended design of the uchiwa will be two sided. One side will be a message for NEWS to read from the stage. The design will include the country flags of all the paanas who get involved in the project.
The other side will be covered in short hand written messages to NEWS. The hand written messages will not be shown to the members, however, will be a way to bring all your feelings along into the venue.
