Music Town event to focus on Okinawa’s mixed culture
An interesting event combining photo exhibition and a panel discussion is scheduled to take place Saturday at Koza Music Town. The event aims to explore the mixed culture of the U.S. and Okinawa, and the discussion is conducted both in English and Japanese.
The event is designed to allow visitors to experience the way America has influenced the contemporary Okinawan culture based on the shared history after the war when Okinawa was occupied by the U.S. through the reversion in 1972. Videos and photos exhibited at the event will give the visitors a retrospective background and demonstrate how Okinawa has evolved from old to the current.
Persons of all ages are welcome to the event, and anyone having old or new pictures of Okinawa are welcome to show them at the exhibition.
The event, which is sponsored by the U.S. Consulate General Okinawa, takes place on Saturday, Mar. 12th at the Music Plaza on the first floor of the Music Town. It starts at 18:30 with the doors opening half and hour earlier. Admission to the event is free. NPO Okinawa Eastern Asia Research Center produces the event with the support from Nansei Co., Star Line Co. and Camp Courtney. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
