2022 spiritual theme
"Beauty and Wisdom" "Victory"

International Liberal Arts Protocol Academy-ICPA and The Elegance Academy's special annual ball hosted by the ICPA Social Club

Main Host Mari Cecilia Murata

~ To the sea of ​​beauty, wisdom, and victory ~
2022 is the time to fly "towards the future of victory" with friends

2021 was a year of great turmoil in the world, horror, sadness, and a glimpse of the roots of humankind.

The year of 2021 is the time to establish "love and trust" with people around us in order to be healed from such suffering, and now that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been held in 2021 and we have restarted, 2022 will be the year of the future. It will be "a year to fly toward the future with friends".

I have discovered something extremely important for all of us after more than 20 years of research and experience. The key was "the miracle jewel of hope" to transform the world.

To convey this, we launched the International Liberal Arts Protocol Academy-ICPA and its affiliated school, The Elegance Academy.

The theme of ICPA's learning to teach liberal arts through protocol studies and languages ​​is "a ship of learning that leads to victory." The Elegance Academy is a sophisticated cultural academy, and the ICPA Social Club is a sophisticated social club for a new future created by members of the world's dignity and intelligence.

At ICPA, we teach life skills. Every learning such as history, people, and yourself, and discovering how to live with confidence will lead to the joy of life.

On the important day of the 5th anniversary, I would like to deliver a "gift" to our special guests.I'm certain that you will bring back a precious treasure from my words.

The appearance of the friends uniting their hearts and working hard together with the passion to "make a wonderful meeting" is like watching the Olympic athletes who will win the battle.

We would like to invite our guests to join us as a "characteristic companion" who travels with this wonderful community and our world of creative, futuristic, history-telling. We hope you will enjoy the extraordinary ball.
