Hitokoto Ichiba - "What is Gerontology? Discussing Universal Design of a Super Aging Society

2016-10-7 (Fri) 19:00 - 20:00

The Hitokoto Ichiba is a place where people from outside of the university can connect with the goings-on from inside of the university. Let's take a look at the topic for this session!

For our second session, we've invited Professor SEKINE Chika of the Faculty of Policy Studies, Doshisha University. As a country at the forefront of super aging society in the world today, Japan must be a leader in developing things that many people can share, or "universal design." In this session, we'll explore the principles of universal design in things that we use everyday, and take a look at the world as seen in "gerontology."

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. 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.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
