For example the Journalist’s work, especially it tends only for the kind of media that are the containers to be talked without understanding the base of this journalism though the visual journalism and the type journalism basically have the common background in the point of understanding the role to defend human rights and the life.
We think about not ”crisis of media” from which management is talked to the center but the ”crisis of journalism”. And We also have the opportunity to think about these issues repeatedly ”What do people need to know?”, ”What should people tell?”, ”What should journalist protect?”, and think about the situation and the future of media while touching work of the journalists on the site.
This festival holds some exhibitions and lectures, and introduces the activity of the journalism education; because of Waseda University has the long history of journalism. And each event does an interactive activity by the volunteer’s cooperation including the students.
The period becomes combined long-term events for several months for the core period as about two weeks. Many people participate, and it is hoped that consideration to journalism rises more because people in a wide layer including the students are targeted.
