In the afternoon of Sunday July 6th 2014, there was the Kickoff Symposium of 5: Designing Media Ecology at the Fukutake Hall, Hongo Campus, UTokyo.

2014年7月6日(日)の午後、東京大学本郷キャンパス福武ホールで、『5:Designing Media Ecology』の創刊シンポジウムを開催しました。


About fifty participants: citizen media practitioners, media literacy teachers, art activists, broadcasters, high school students, university professors, etc, student’s supporters, and the members of editorial office got together and had a rich discussion and shared feeling experience.



The editorial board members: Osamu Sakura (left), Yoshitaka Mouri (center), and Shin Mizukoshi (right) had a talk session to show their stances and contexts of making new media colony. From the audience, there was a provocative question  to them, and it made the session as a passionate one.



The discussion workshop with five groups was quite stimulating and precious one for sharing ideas how to develop the media strategy of 5.
From now on, we are going to prepare the publication of second issue which will be in our hands in December 2014, produce meetings and workshops, and develop our website.

Again, thank you so much for all the participants and potential supporters all over the world!
