Outline of the event

12th Concept


▼Gathering Thoughts
At the 12th Kyoto Student Festival, we will incorporate not only the thoughts of the executive committee members, but also the thoughts of various people who have been built up in the 1st~11th Kyoto Student Festival as opinions, and work together to revitalize Kyoto through annual activities.
▼ To the stage that attracts
Through the annual exchange, we hope that more people will learn about and be involved in the activities of the Kyoto Student Festival (know, see, and be interested). We will also involve more people than ever before in the Kyoto Student Festival and aim to make further breakthroughs to make it one of the four major festivals in Kyoto.

Student Support

Student Growth Program

The University Consortium Kyoto supports students' daily activities based on the principle of "creating independently," and hopes that the "interactions" and "experiences" with a wide variety of people experienced through independent activities will lead to new "awareness" and "learning" that will lead to student growth.
We are working to create a system that promotes student growth by promoting the following support methods with the goal of smooth execution of activities, improvement of projects, and continuous development of projects, adopting the PDCA cycle method that emphasizes student activities as a single project, working as a team, and producing results as a team.

1 Planning period November~May Information gathering, awareness, and planning
2 Trial period May~September Implementation of pre-planning (medium-sized project imitating the main festival)

Implementation Report

The Kyoto Student Festival, now in its 12th year, has been working together to revitalize Kyoto through its annual activities, incorporating not only the thoughts of the executive committee members but also the thoughts of various people who have built up to date, based on the concept of "Bringing together and drawing people into a stage." With the two themes of "regional expansion" and "student expertise," we aimed to get more people involved in the activities of the Kyoto Student Festival than ever before, get involved in the movement, and make further progress to make it one of the four major festivals in Kyoto.

▼Regional Expansion

On the day of the festival, we held "Roadside Station Kyoto" to collect and sell and showcase local specialties from all over Kyoto and collaborative products between students and companies, and many exhibitors from regions with which we had never interacted before.

▼Student Expertise

At the pre-event, under the theme of learning by Kyoto students, we held exhibitions, performances, and hands-on corners of "learning" cultivated through university students' classes and extracurricular activities.

We also implemented the Tohoku Project, which was launched in fiscal 2013 as part of our charity activities, and energetically worked to increase the number of fans in Japan beyond the boundaries of Kyoto. Together with these activities other than this festival, we had opportunities to interact with more than 200 organizations throughout the year, and we were able to involve more people.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who came to the festival venue and to all the related parties who supported us in various fields throughout the year.
