Grupo Kalinangan Inc., in partnership with the Japan Foundation Manila and the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, will hold the very first International Conference on Shared Histories and Cultural Heritage of Japan and the Philippines on 6-7 November 2020.
The broad objective of this two-day international conference, which has the theme ????????:???????? (Bunka isan no k?saten: Nihon to Firipin or Cultural Heritage Intersection: Japan and the Philippines), is to foster a deeper mutual understanding of the shared history and cultural heritage of Japan and the Philippines. This will include various topics about the shared history, culture, and heritage of Japan and the Philippines during colonial, modern, and contemporary times.
The conference also seeks to identify and explore possible solutions to major challenges faced by cultural heritage communities in Japan and the Philippines in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the conference promotes a wide-reaching online exchange to assist cultural practitioners, scholars, professionals, academics, and students to continue their education and discourse amidst the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions that prevent meaningful face-to-face learning opportunities.
A number of local and foreign heritage and cultural experts, anthropologists, historians, architects, and other allied professionals who have studied the Japanese influences and historic events in Philippine cultural heritage and society, will conduct lectures and talks in this two-day conference, which will be held as a private and curated Zoom webinar.
This event is funded in part by Japan Foundation Manila and is sponsored by Asia Society Philippines. The conference is also part of the ongoing celebrations in solidarity with the 500th year of the coming of Christianity of the Philippines, being organized by the National Quincentennial Committee and the Local Historical Committees Network.
