To Overseas Kenjinkai Interested in the 2021 “World Uchinā Network Enhancement Promotion” Okinawa Performing Arts Instructor Dispatch Program!

1.About the “World Uchinā Network Enhancement Promotion” Okinawa Performing Arts Instructor Dispatch Program
 The program aims to support overseas Kenjinkai who will be holding events related to "World Uchinānchu Day" by dispatching instructors from the diverse and beautiful world of Okinawan performing arts. By offering a support system, Okinawa Prefecture hopes to better promote Okinawa’s appeal as well as perpetuate, develop, and strengthen relationships with overseas Kenjinkais.

1) Establishment and raising awareness of "World Uchinānchu Day" (event-related support)
2) Expansion of cultural initiatives as related to overseas Kenjinkai and the Uchinā Network
3) Fostering interest in Okinawan culture within overseas Kenjinkai members and related persons, especially among the younger generation

3.Program Content 
Okinawan performing arts instructors are dispatched in accordance with a "World Uchinānchu Day Commemorative Event" organized on or around October 30th, 2021 "World Uchinānchu Day " by an overseas Kenjinkai in order to foster a connection between said Kenjinkai and Okinawa, and provide a foundation for the Kenjinkai to continue to organize similar such events.
