ICOM KYOTO 2019 Post-Conference Program in Okinawa

Okinawa is an ideal place to explore the important roles of museums; namely, “the passing down of unique natural environments and cultures” and “preservation of history.” In line with ICOM KYOTO 2019's theme (MUSEUM AS CULTURAL HUBS: The Future of Tradition), we would like to hold a post-conference in Okinawa. Our hope is to examine two topics: How to pass on unique cultures amid advancing globalization, and how to preserve memories of war as generations that have not experienced it comprise more and more of society's mainstream. We invite everyone to participate in the post-conference, a program organized for the purposes of exploring these topics, promoting interaction between interested local parties and ICOM researchers, and deepening understanding of Okinawa.

Date:
Sunday, September 8 – Tuesday, September 10, 2019
Venue:
Okinawa Prefecture (Naha City, Itoman City, Kunigami District)
