We at the Tokyo Institute of Technology Academy for Leadership have the great good fortune of welcoming Ms. Soraya Umewaka, an award-winning multimedia artist (documentary filmmaker, actress, playwright, and director), as our featured speaker at the Future of Leadership Symposium on Thursday, August 5th from 7 pm.

Ms. Soraya Umewaka will speak about finding allies when creating her documentary films, and how she let her curiosity guide her when producing her films. She will also talk about her experience in a closed traditional world and how she pushed the boundaries of creativity when creating a modern Noh play. This presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

In the second half of the event, Tokyo Tech students will hold panel presentations and panel discussions in breakout rooms on Zoom, on topics such as public health, education, politics, culture, environment, and COVID-19.
