Content

The Japan study tour offers a cross-cultural exchange embedded within creative practice. This is explored through formal and informal activities while surveying Japan’s major cities and cultural sites. The tour provides a unique context for individual students and the study tour group to analyse and reflect upon the different ways creative thinking and research methods can engage with place, identity and meaning. Tour activities include visits to professional studios and contemporary art and design spaces, and collaborative workshops with students and staff from selected institutions such as Musashino Art University in Tokyo, Tama University and Kyoto University of Art and Design and the Kyoto Manga Museum

 

The study tour unit investigates how history, tradition, art, education, language, ritual, technology, as well as belief systems and other cultural factors influence our ideas about values and our own habits, ourselves and ideas in sometimes unexpected ways. Assignment work and non-assessed tasks draw upon the experiences, insights and new knowledge gained from reflecting on Japan’s rich contribution to creativity and practice.
