In a fast-paced era with the existence of the internet today, various online media are emerged and also try to be the fastest in presenting the news. However, according to Nisa Alfira, S.I.Kom., M.S., a Communication Science lecturer at Faculty of Social and Political Science Brawijaya University (FISIP UB) mentioned that it does not apply to Terakota. According to her, although the current media compete each other to emphasize speed in presenting news, Terakota has different efforts. Terakota's news are presented in interesting ways, but do not override into the data obtained.

On a book review "Merawat Tradisi dan Kearifan Budaya" by Eko Widianto,, held in Nuswantara Auditorium FISIP UB, on Friday (06/Apr/2018), was discussed a theme about "Writing History in a Journalistic Approach". The event is a collaboration between Communication Science Department FISIP UB and Terakota with the speakers Nisa Alfira, S.I.Kom., M.A., a communication science lecturer of FISIP UB, and Hari Istiawan, as Terakota Head of Research and Head of AJI Malang.

According to Nisa Alfira, media has very important roles to show what is going on, as well as inviting part of the past.

"Terakota is able to perform many sides from communities we need to re-introduce, and they are able to perform it very well," said Nisa.

In addition, documentation efforts also conducted by Terakota which need to be appreciated. People need to know about things that become reality in their life in order to maintain their memory, as well as can have a foothold and values for thinking.

"Media is able to provide rides to get to know or maintain collective memories. Collective memories need to be maintained by repetitions, thus mass media has important roles to implement this. With high quality writings, the news is expected able to be a focus for the community in recalling collective memories," she said.

Moreover, mass media with the latest technology features is very capable to apply this function. Such as storage function, many archives can be accessed quickly and easily.

By having a news coverage as conducted by Terakota towards all practices of arts, history, culture and tourism, will greatly help us as community element to re-access in the future generations. [Charisma/Humas FISIP/Humas UB/trans. Denok]
