At the event Outlook: Japan 2020 we will connect the past, the present day and especially the near future of 2020, when Japan will again attract the world’s attention with the upcoming Tokyo Olympic Games, and look into new opportunities and challenges for Dutch-Japanese collaboration in the arts and culture field.
