Activity: Visiting an external institution › Visiting an external academic institution
I visited the University of Tokyo for one week as part of 'Contemporary Arts in Rural Development', a UK-Japanese international network of stakeholders with expertise in contemporary arts practice, rural community development and rural planning. The network aims to develop a new research agenda on the role of contemporary arts in rural development policy and theory.
The project is led by Newcastle University’s Centre for Rural Economy, along with academics at the University of Tokyo and other stakeholders in both the UK and Japan. We are funded by the UK’s Research Councils (AHRC and ESRC UK-Japan Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities Connections grant). https://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/ruralarts/
