In this symposium, prominent Australian and Japanese artists, cultural commentators and scholars speak about their personal relationship with an object that embodies a connection between Japan or Australia. They reflect on their own role as intermediaries between Australia and Japan and Australia in their own professional worlds. As narrators, creators, distributors, interpreters and consumers of these objects, they – and we – are transforming everyday life and cultural and artistic practices in each country.  Speakers include:  Professor Kazue Nakamura, Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature, Meiji University  Ryuhei Nadatani, Director, Public Program, Toyoma Glass Centre, Japan Lesley Kehoe, Principal, Lesley Kehoe Galleries Doug Hall AM, former Commissioner for the Australian exhibitions at the Venice Biennale Dr Emerald King, Lecturer in Japanese, La Trobe University and Cosplayer John McBride AM, philanthropist, art patron and tea master in the Omotesenke tea tradition.
