Event Type: Both in person and online


Have you ever felt “something is wrong …” or “life is difficult …” in your everyday life? Anti-Oppressive Social Work Practice (AOP) does not attribute “difficulties” to the fault of any individual, but to “oppressions” those are created by social norms and institutions. This symposium refers to AOP as a starting point for a dialogue on creating a space for children through art. We will introduce two cases: “Children’s Cinema Club” in Ueda City, Nagano Prefecture, and an art workshop for children in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture. Join us in exploring arts practices that confront this “oppressions!”
