A Drop-in Clinic For Design Help & Hovering In Tokyo [PechaKucha]
The international design hub shares presentations on a design walk-in advice hub and amusing activities in Japan.
The Design Walkin — a project created by Zahra Ebrahim (ArchiTEXT.inc) and Ken Chong (The Baitshop Inc) and presented at PKN Toronto Vol. 16 — is a drop-in clinic created to make design and design advice accessible to the general public.
In this presentation (in Japanese, from PKN Sendai Vol. 2), Kazushige Monou talks about his Tsurezure Dan project, in which he tries to produce fun and creative activities in the Tohoku region, with the hope of sharing them with others.
Today we’ll point you to this Flickr photoset from last week’s PKN Kingston Vol. 3 (pictured above), and what a night it was. “Our heads are still spinning from the event,” says PKN Kingston organizer David Cuthbert. “It went really, really well, and we had our largest event to date, over 200+ (totally unplanned).”
We’ll share one more photo today, this one in a series that our PKN Tokyo photographer Michael Holmes has been taking for our event flyers (see the first one here). A lovely hovering photo taken near our venue, SuperDeluxe, just before the start of last month’s PKN Tokyo Vol. 93.
Here’s what you can expect in terms of PechaKucha action this weekend. Tonight (July 13), we start with PKN Chattanooga Vol. 11 and PKN Moscow, Idaho Vol. 2. On Saturday we have the following trio of events: PKN Tulsa Vol. 1, PKN Ostrava Vol. 8, and PKN Nara Vol. 3. Since Monday is a holiday here in Japan and so we won’t be updating the blog, take note that PKN Leeds Vol. 12 is taking place on that day, and then on Tuesday you can look to Jacksonville as it celebrates its Vol. 20.
