With the academic year just starting in Japan, there is a feeling of new potential. WMDF visited Future University Hakodate to present a slideshow about our activities. This is the first time that we have toured our event in this way, but the increasing scale of our festival means that we need more staff.
GIA representatives were Ian and Takuma, who gave an outline of our work, the possible roles for staff, and fielded questions. Thanks to all those who attended, and especially to those who filled in the forms to apply as new staff members!
We are planning to carry out similar explanation meetings at other places in town. If you would like us to visit your organisation, just let us know. Initially, we will focus on universities, as we believe that we have an obligation to provide new experiences for the next generation. We are also looking to recruit “WMDF Representatives” at institutions around town. These people would forward information mails from WMDF within their organisations. The load is not high (a few emails per year), but we believe that it is important to involve all levels of the town.
