“Cross over the Arirang Pass: The Messages of Zainichi Korean Music”

In this lecture, we look at some of the musical activity that zainichi Koreans are engaging in, prompted by historical memory and experience of everyday living. I would also like to explore the role that museums can play in realizing an inclusive society while supporting such music projects.

“Co-created Music: What Inclusion Looks Like for a Diversity of People”

Following the end of the Cold War, it became the norm around the world to launch various musical initiatives addressing intractable social problems around armed conflicts, poverty, natural and man-made disasters, disability, and so on. This lecture will focus on domestic initiatives and examine two cases from Kagoshima and Hokkaido and explore how musical activity relates to inclusion of people of diverse backgrounds and abilities.
