The 6th International Conference of Museums for Peace
The 6th International Conference of Museums for Peace will be held in Kyoto and Hiroshima, Japan, from October 6th to 11th.
It is organized by Kyoto Museums for World Peace, Ritsumeikan University,
Kyoto University of Art and Design
Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.
The main theme is:
Peace Museums as Spaces for Creating Peace
- Building "Peace Literaby" for Global Problem-Solving
Please go to the conference website for a detailed program.
I will be presenting in the following two sessions:
"Peace Philosophy Centre as a Home-based Peace Centre"
15:20 - 16:50, Monday October 6th
"What did students from Japan, US, Canada learn at Hiroshima and Nagasaki Museums?"
17:00 - 18:30 , Monday October 6th
Two other sessions that I will be likely involved with will be one by Peace Boat, and another by my colleague Misako Iwashita on peace education.
This conference is held every three years. Do not miss this opportunity if you are interested in hearing the cutting-edge practices of peace museum movements around the world!
