Music Program TOKYO Workshop Workshop! 2020 on stage & legacy Lecture "Dementia and Art; Music and Care" Lectures and training for the art activities leading to social inclusion

There are a growing need and increasing attention for activities which spotlight the inclusivity of arts in recent years. Such movement introduced legislation for promoting artistic activities for people with disabilities. On the other hand, we, as practitioners of "arts activities leading to social inclusion," are still trying to figure out how to handle those activities and how to deliver them with higher quality.

The Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, therefore, launched lectures and skill-up training to sort out the points we need to understand on practicing "arts activities leading to social inclusion." The focus will be on performing arts such as music and dance.

The lecture is in collaboration with the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the expert on dementia and music therapy. We will go through the facts and situations of dementia from the point of medical view. Furthermore, we share the case studies on: diseases of which music therapy is effective in the treatment, including dementia and Parkinson's disease; amusia, which affects a person's sound and musical recognition; and care activities with music-based interventions. Through these learnings, we will reconsider the potential and the roles that arts and music can fulfill in our society.
