Report on the activities of the‘Remember 3/11 Center’
Photo exhibition ‘March 12: Hajimari no Gohan(Meals that
Mark a New Start)’ (in cooperation with NPO 20th
Century Archive Sendai)
In May 2011, the “Remember 3/11 Center” (also known as “Wasuren!” ) was established at Sendai Mediatheque as a base for recording information about the disaster and the recovery and reconstruction process from it, with the collaboration of residents, experts, artists, and center staff.
Videos, photos, and sound clips of what was seen and heard by people in various disaster situations are organized and kept as a “Chronicles of Disaster: Residents’ Collaborative Archive” after properly managing the information rights. The records can be viewed on the center website or borrowed from libraries, and are sometimes exhibited or screened. In addition, meetings to discuss the disaster using videos, photos, and sound clips are held. A total of 478 videos, 2,238 photos, and 41 sound clips have been released on the website, some of which have been translated into English, by the end of April 2016.
