"'The Voice without a Voice, the Voice All Around Us, and My Voice' Art Festivals III" Closing Symposium

2016-3-6 (Sun) 14:00 - 17:00

The art festivals for this year, which started in June of 2015, will come to a close in March. At this closing symposium, we've invited MORI Masaki, (Vice President, Green Valley/first chairperson, Kamiyama Artist in Residence) to give us a lecture on the topic of "Supporting People, Changing Towns, and Making Work - The Power of Art: Tracks of Kamiyamacho Artists in Residence."

We have also set aside time for attendees to speak directly with Mr. Mori.
Prior registration is not required, and admission is free. We look forward to seeing you at Osaka University's Nakanoshima Center.

This year marks the 3rd year for the art festivals organized by the Graduate School of Letters at Osaka University.

This closing symposium was proposed, planned, and created by students.

This symposium will cover Artists in Residence of Kamiyamacho, Tokushima Prefecture.

Artists in Residence of Kamiyamacho started in 1999 from a plan from the prefecture to create an International Culture Village. Currently, the endeavors of the artists in residence have become independent, and these efforts have been gathering attention from artists overseas.

In addition, this movement also ties to attracting companies to the region and an influx in population, so these efforts are gathering attention in town development as well.

In this seminar, we'll hear a lecture from Vice President Mori of Green Valley on the methods of thinking in art management, how to utilize these ways of thinking in art society, and their possibilities, while introducing the thinking behind these endeavors and some real examples. Later, we'll hear some reports on-location from students, and attendees will exchange opinions and information together with Vice President Mori.
