International Symposium “Immigration Museum: Australia-Japan Dialogue towards the Enhancement of Cultural Diversity”
This event has ended.
The Immigration Museum in Melbourne, Australia has been dynamically engaging with formal and informal education and community activities to enhance cultural diversity in society through artistic installations and interactive visual programs, as well as historical exhibitions on the theme of migration. A similar concern has been developing in Japan where many actors, such as the Immigration Museum Tokyo Pilot Program, have organized artistic projects. This symposium aims to advance dialogue between Japan and Australia to collaboratively promote cultural diversity in society.
