The importance of a rich cultural environment for every child from Okinawa where its arts and culture are nurtured

  • Venue: N8 ricca ricca Studio (inside ACO Okinawa)
  • Sun 24th July
  • 15:00 - 17:00

Performing arts culture has always been vibrant within the local communities and life of Okinawa. Festivals and arts have the power to connect people, create communities, bring vitality and develop children’s sensibilities.

In Okinawa, a wonderful culture has been passed down through generations and in this symposium we want to think deeply about what are necessary platforms for children’s growth and development.

“To create a cultural platform for all children in their daily life” – we will take another look to further reflect on the present, during this occasion of Okinawa’s 50th anniversary after its reversion to Japan.
