‘One City, One Book’ campaign is a program that invites the community to read one selected book and then to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences to change communities’ cultural terrain. It has been designed to spread citizen's empathy and create a culture of understanding through the experience of reading one particular book.
In South Korea, several cities are carrying out ‘One City, One Book’ campaigns. One of the most prolific of these is the ‘One Book, One Busan’ campaign of Busan Citizen's Library. This campaign, which celebrates for its 16th year in 2019, announces ‘one book' in April each year, and over the course of a year it conducts various activities through reading and cultural programs.
In this poster, the author who has been in charge of the campaign since 2016 will illustrate the dynamic activities of ‘One Book, One Busan’ campaign, which is the most successful reading campaign in South Korea.
The primary objective of the poster is to explore ‘One Book, One Busan’ as viewed through the program’s successes and setbacks. It will survey the uniqueness, roles and the influences to the community with pictures and posters of various activities of the campaign.
