The NC Japan Center is pleased to be a promotional partner for the “Cultural and Educational Exchange” Topical Session of the upcoming U.S.-Japan Council’s 2020 Public Symposium, scheduled for November 17-19, 2020. Titled, “Two Nations, Countless Connections – Community, Partnership and the Road Ahead,” the Symposium will explore the transformative areas of the bilateral relationship that have brought about hope and recovery. The program will also examine topics around community building, diversity, and resilience in both countries today, ultimately advancing the important work around key priorities in U.S.-Japan and Japanese American affairs. We will explore the question: How are enduring communities and partnerships formed?
Topical Session: Cultural & Educational Exchange November 19 from 3:00-4:15pm ET
Join us for a multi-sector look at developing bilateral partnerships and people-to-people relations by investing in local communities and cultural and educational exchanges.
