The 2nd International Roundtable Meeting: “Towards the Century of Cities”

Posted at : 2011-11-23

International Symposium:
Post Disaster Communities and Arts Management

Asian counties have severely affected by “disasters”, such as earthquake, Tsunami, volcano, social conflict and terrorism. We will discuss how to regenerate after their devastations and how to create knowledge and skills for regeneration, in terms of ” art as medium”. Why arts? How should we utilize arts for area management after disasters. How can we share local knowledge?
