Twenty international experts and outstanding Japanese artists will meet at the DIJ Tokyo from 12-14 August 2022 to discuss how the arts can contribute to overcoming the multiple challenges facing regions in Japan. Since the early 2000s, regional arts projects and festivals have sprung up in many places in rural Japan, including the Triennial in Echigo-Tsumari and the Toyooka theatre festival. Many regions anticipate such events to create new types of social, cultural, and economic capital in the area. Some rural communities also engage with art projects to promote countryside lifestyles and environmental awareness.

The symposium addresses ‘Art in the Countryside’ from an interdisciplinary perspective, including Visual and Performing Arts, Cultural Policy, Tourism Studies, and Social Anthropology, and also includes contributions by artists and practitioners. The key note will be delivered by Mari Kobayashi, Professor of Cultural Resources Studies, Course of Cultural Management in the Graduate School of Humanities and Sociology at the University of Tokyo on 12 August. Participation is possible online (12 August only) or on-site. Registration is required.

The event is organised by Associate Professor Gunhild Borggreen (Department of Arts and Cultural Studies, University of Copenhagen) and DIJ principal researcher Barbara Geilhorn. It is part of their projects on Collaboration and Community Building in Contemporary Art and Local Issues Take Stage – Culture and Community Revitalization, respectively.
