Part 2. Conversation: Philosophy cafe – Do you participate in society?
This year’s Tokyo Diversion Research program includes an interactive field research project called “Moyamoya Field Work”. In the “Research” component of the project, participants visit health and welfare facilities and care organizations in Tokyo, and conduct participant observation and interviews. In the “Report and Conversations” component, they present the findings of their research and engage in conversation on a related theme, with the goal of deepening understanding of issues related to diversity and societal boundaries.
A presentation on a facility for intellectually disabled individuals that operates a live music club, and what it reveals about social participation. During the second half of the event, they will join in a philosophy-cafe-style conversation, in which a facilitator will lead the group in a respectful and in-depth exchange of ideas. The event is open to anyone with an interest in the topic.
