“A walk for colours” was a title given at a workshop organised by Yokohama Art Museum in 2011. I thought that this mysterious title was suitable for this workshop. So, I asked the person at the museum, who named this title, if I could use it. She gladly consented to my request with her words “It would be so fun if you could expand a walk for colours in various places.”
That is certainly true, it would be so nice if I could do the walk for colours in various places.
