GIFT FROM JAPAN - LETHBRIDGE STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM. ACCORDING TO S.E. ASIAN PHILOSOPHY, IT IS REQUIRED THAT DURING AN OFFICIAL VISIT (LIKE A STUDENT EXCHANGE) A GIFT IS GIVEN TO THE HOST COUNTRY (IN THIS CASE CITY). THIS BANNER IS SUCH A GIFT. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING THOSE INITIALLY GIVEN TO THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE THROUGH VARIOUS EXCHANGES WITH CITIES IN JAPAN.

DURING THESE EXCHANGES, DELEGATES FROM THE JAPANESE CITIES REGULARLY MET WITH LETHBRIDGE MAYOR DAVID CARPENTER AND GAVE CEREMONIAL GIFTS, AS IS CUSTOM IN JAPAN.
