AJF Priority Area: Education and Australian Studies
Country location: Japan
Grantee: Otemon Gakuin University
The Australia library of the Otemon Gakuin University Library is the only dedicated collection of literature on Australia in Japan. In order to serve as the ultimate domestic information centre on Australia in Japan, we will purchase non-Japanese books in the area where Australia has done eminent research and it has had a lot of attention in recent years. We will hold the following events during the school festival in November, Didgeridoo concert, and a lecture on Didgeridoos and Aboriginal art. It is planned that Mr. Kenji Mikami, a well-known didgeridoo player, will support these events. The event will be a good chance to allow many people to learn about Australian culture, diversity, and history.
