TURN Meeting No.14

2021.8.17

The Difficulty in Communication

In TURN meetings, we think about and discuss possibilities for the TURN art project. The theme of this TURN meeting is “the difficulty inherent in communication.”

In the FY 2020 TURN meeting, we implemented accessibility methods that make use of special media features, including interpretation for the deaf, audio guides and captions, so that as many people as possible could enjoy the event online. Through these efforts, issues resulting from differences in individual backgrounds and cultures came to light. In this meeting, we will look back at these activities while considering, together with our guests, various forms of communication and their inherent difficulty.

In Part 1 our guest will be Satsuki Ayaya, organizer of “Otoemojite” – a self-help group that conducts “Tojisha-Kenkyu” meeting – that is managed by and composed of neurodivergent people. In Part 2 we will welcome critic Chiki Ogiue as a guest in addition to Ayaya; and TURN supervisor Katsuhiko Hibino will join a discussion focusing on communication and expression with various people of different backgrounds and cultures.
