Almost six years have past since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
Around the coastal areas of Tohoku, large-scale land development and public housing reconstruction work is ongoing, and visible scars of the disaster are now few. On the other hand, the legacy of memory from the disaster is becoming a significant issue with respect to future earthquakes and other disasters.
What sort of role and significance does documentation have for the passing-on of memories of disasters? We will hear from guests with an accumulated variety of practical experience, and consider the issues together with event participants.
