Sex Education Symposium (July 10, 2018)

June 19, 2018

Symposium: Japan Seen Through Overseas Sex Education - Connecting the Formation of Sexual Awareness with Social Structures

This year's festival features a lineup of performing arts from around the world and focuses on the keyword "female". Ahead of the festival, a symposium about sex education will reflect on various problems related to gender in our society today.

The symposium will consider women from the perspective of sex education, which is intimately tied to the problem of gender in artistic expression. In creative fields, we are always asked to interpret and understand things through international frames of reference. Japanese sex education, however, is often criticized as underdeveloped. The symposium will illuminate the social structures that lie behind this situation through a lecture on the establishment and aims of sex education in Japan and globally as well as exploring the broader contexts of sex education from multiple approaches.
