On April 28, a healing festival was held in an open space next to Jeonju University’s Superstar Hall, JJ Art Hall, and the Art Museum.
The 48th BeːONE Student Council said that the healing festival’s name “Cheer YOU” contains the meaning of “comforting you tired” to cheer Jeonju University students who are absorbed in their studies amid difficulties caused by Corona 19.
Healing festival ‘CHEER YOU’ divided Superstar Hall, vacant lot next to the art museum, and JJ Art Hall into ‘Performance Zone’, ‘Iloilo Arc Zone’, and ‘Culture and Arts Zone’. In addition, various experience booths and photo zones were operated in the vacant lot next to the art museum from 3 o’clock to enrich the festival.
From 4 o’clock, booths and performances were held to help students enjoy the festival freely.
There were also performances by acting students, who presented their own performance called “Summer Fairy Tale” over two days on the eve and day of the festival.
Due to COVID-19, the Healing Festival, which actually took place in Phase 1.5 of social distancing, was planned and held based on Phase 2 of social distancing for safety.
For example, the maximum capacity in the concert hall was limited to 100, and all participants in the festival complied with the quarantine guidelines with a help of festival officials.
While trying to prevent infection, the 48th BeONONE Student Council used a YouTube live streaming to soothe the regret of students who could not enjoy it together in the concert hall.
Regarding the Healing Festival, ‘Everytime,’ a school community, also responded positively to the event, which was held in a new way, such as “It was good to have a new experience, personal memory, and “It was good to make memories for my last semester.”
However, there were also many voices of concern and criticism over the spread of Covid-19. In addition, a petition titled, “Please tell us how you planned the festival, budget, and alternatives the student council has in mind in the event of a confirmed case of corona” was posted on the JJ petition of the student council in Everytime on April 29.
The petition post received great interest from students, and the 48th BeːONE student association posted an official statement on Everytime, Instagram, and Facebook on May 3rd.
