Creative Community Pairs Sydney Designers With Local Craftspeople [PechaKucha]
The international design hub shares a daily dose of visual inspiration.
In this presentation (from PKN Sydney Vol. 21) by Anna Lise de Lorenzo you’ll find out all about &company, a project that gives emerging designers the opportunity to build their design experience within a creative community. They provide mentoring, facilitate production with local craftspeople and manufacturers, and take care of the marketing and distribution of the design. &company is on a mission to give designers a leg-up as they develop into capable and confident professionals. Not just for designers, the new Pop-Up premises in The Rocks invites anyone in to come and make something in the workshop, learn new skills in a class, or check out the work by their designers in the gallery and store.
Poet and rapper Pablo Xavier suffers from schizophrenia, but he feels much better now. Through poetry and images, he explains how hard it has been. A very personal and touching presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 9).
We have one set of photos to share with you today, taken at last week’s PKN Brighton Vol. 11 — you’re seeing one of those photos above. Of course, you can always find plenty of other event photos on our PechaKucha Night Flickr account.
Back from the weekend, you can start your week with tonight’s PKN Rotterdam Vol. 30. Tomorrow (June 26), you can look for the following two events: PKN Amersfoort Vol. 7 and PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 25.
