Kyoto Children’s Museum Forum, September 7, 2019

The event has ended. Thank you for your interest.

This year, the International Council of Museums will be held for the first time in Japan in Kyoto (ICOM Kyoto 2019). On the final day of the general conference, a unique event will be held at the Kyoto National Museum predominantly involving children, showcasing their efforts to carry our regional cultures on into the future. The children will present four unique performing arts and festival events—making it a wonderful opportunity to communicate the appeals of traditional Kyoto to the rest of the world. At the same time, special classes will be held for the next-generation of children to help them understand and get closer to cultural properties. The theme for ICOM Kyoto 2019 is "Museums as Cultural Hubs: The Future of Tradition." We hope you will take this chance to view the fantastic performances of these children, and their tireless activities to carry tradition on into the future.
