2015 Municipal Cultural Conversations between France, Japan, China and Korea
In Niigata, a conference which worked on cultural creation was held for 10 cities from Japan, France, China, and South Korea. The main theme of the conference was "The Position of Culture in Sustainable City Building," and there were three sub-themes: "Culture and Food," "Culture and Industries," and "Culture and Welfare." Participants, which included representatives from the cities, involved individuals, and various artists, got together and actively discussed topics related to the themes. It became an opportunity for the participants to report on city building projects utilizing their own cultural uniqueness, and to suggest exchange programs and exchange opinions from various viewpoints. At the end of the conference, the participants adopted the Niigata Declaration of "Dialogue on City and Culture 2015 between Japan, France, China and South Korea."
