Japan Impact is a cultural non-profit event that aims to present Japan to French-speaking Switzerland. The events will happen on February 17 and 18 in Lausanne.
The convention was created by PolyJapan, an association of students from EPFL and elsewhere, who are passionate about Japanese culture. With the collaboration of other associations from the region (and even from France), they have the ambition to entertain you during a weekend with their numerous activities and animations. During the two days of the convention, you will enjoy:
- cultural workshops
- cosplay contests
- screenings of movies and of Japanese animated series
- martial art demonstrations
- various stands
I was invited for two conferences (in French) for this 2018 edition: a first one on Saturday about Pepper&Carrot and a second one on Sunday to talk about the impact of the Japanese animation broadcasted in France during the 80s on a generation. I'll also be around for a signing session :)
So, see you in Switzerland next week?
