Labo Café, Child Café -- "How Mama wants to work"

2014-6-18 (Wed) 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

After getting married and/or having a baby, 60% of women [in Japan] quit their jobs. Currently there are 3,420,000 "mothers" who'd like to work but who are not working. Society talks a lot about the "focusing on the work power of housewives," but is that really the case? What's the actual situation? What kind of workplace is it easy for these mothers to get a job in? Is there a system making it easy for them to get a job?

Using "How Mama wants to work" as our theme, we'd like to talk together about how mothers can, while raising their child(ren), return to and/or enter the workplace.

By the way, you're more than welcome to bring your child(ren) with you to this café. There will even be a space where you can nurse your baby. Please come!

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse on the 1st basement of the Naniwabashi Station was set up as the Art Area B1 at the time of opening of the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line in 2006. Starting then, the project to make the station a center of artistic communication commenced.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1 is the "Lab Café," designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. The Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.
