Anime Milwaukee is committed to bringing attention not only to Japanese pop culture, such as anime and manga, but also to the finer points of Japan’s traditional culture, including artwork, cuisine, language, music and more. While anime and video games have certainly proven to be one of the richest cultural exchanges of our time, many people who enjoy these pop culture exports have gone on to study Japanese language, travel to Japan and discover the other wonders that the country has to offer. Anime Milwaukee wishes to bring this sense of wonder and discovery to our attendees with a variety of panel presentations, musical acts and more. If you represent a school, agency, organization, etc., that deals with Japanese culture and wish to bring content to Anime Milwaukee, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
So far, we have hosted panel presentations by professors from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, the Wisconsin Association of Teachers of Japanese and the University of Wisconsin–Parkside. We have also had booths, presentations and special events hosted by the Consulate General of Japan at Chicago, Tohoku Tomo, Milwaukee Hibiki Taiko Drumming Group, Ayumi Tanaka and more.
