Organised by the International Exchange Program Executive Committee for Disabled People’s Culture and Arts (IEPEC) in collaboration with the Japan Foundation Asia Center, BACC and the Japanese government’s Agency for Cultural Affairs, the forum sets out to create dialogue and discussion about disabled people’s art activities in Asia among professionals from related fields including arts, performing arts, social welfare, medical experts, and practitioners from various Asian countries.
The forum aims to cross the boundary between countries and cultures and learn more about the use of social welfare approaches in arts and culture while also promoting understanding and action on the issues faced by communities across Asia. The results will be recorded and the information gathered from the exchanges distributed within Japan in order to create a better environment for arts and cultural activities of disabled people.
Admission is free and Japanese, Thai and English interpretation will be available via headphones.
