DA&D Presents PechaKucha: Japan In Aid Of The Ashinaga Organisation
PechaKucha: Japan 23 May, Doors open at 6.00pm, lecture starts at 7pm Logan Hall, Institute of Education
Just over a year after the tsunami sent shockwaves through a country and around the world, DA&D are putting together a collection of the design and communication world’s greatest stars to share stories about Japan.
DA&D want to hear about their visits, their projects, the influence of Japan on their work, and why it’s a place like no other.
The format is the now world-famous 20×20 PechaKucha, invented by superstar architects Klein Dytham. Each speaker has 20 slides, each slide lasts 20 seconds. 6 minutes, 40 seconds, then it’s over. The ultimate presentation level playing field.
Confirmed speakers so far include:
Andy Altmann (Why Not Associates)
Fred Deakin (ex-Airside)
Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham)
Michael Marriott (Michael Marrriott)
Timon Screech (History of Art & Archaeology, SOAS)
David Keech – Product Designer Kathryn Findlay (Ushida Findlay)
Helen McCarthy (Manga)
Adam Torel (Third Window Films)
And there are more big names still to come. Your host for the evening will be D&AD past-president Michael Johnson (johnson banks) who has spent much of the last decade working on projects in Japan.
Ticket price: £15.00
