Parallel Horizons: Blending Tradition and Modernity in Japanese Culture

0 out of 5


Do we really need to choose between modern and traditional? – Join Azumi Uchitani for an enlightening lecture that delves into the unique balance of traditional and modern culture in Japan. Explore the fascinating interplay between ancient customs and ceremonies (i.e. wearing kimono and arranging stones in Japanese gardens) that co-exist together with  contemporary expressions (like anime and digitised lifestyle). Discover how traditional arts and crafts have evolved to embrace modern techniques and aesthetics, how ancient philosophies influence present-day lifestyles, and how traditional ceremonies and rituals continue to hold significance in the fast-paced modern society. Join our discussion and gain a deeper understanding of the cultural nuances, values, and creative transformations that arise from this delicate balance between tradition and modernity.
