Event Description

From _ To - A Design Workshop In George Town

Facilitator: Sali Sasaki

Explore George Town through its juxtapositions of architecture, objects, people, food and more. By taking the city as a source of inspiration and looking at good-practice examples on placemaking and storytelling from other cities, participants will learn how to build a compelling design experience based on local everyday cultures. Each participant will be asked to choose a focus area, whether it is product, graphic design, service/experience design or spatial/architecture design.

Sali Sasaki started her career as a freelance illustrator and designer but left the design world to work as UNESCO staff over a period of 4 years. Since 2011, she has been exploring the potential of creative development in various countries of Southeast Asia by organising workshops, lectures, events and cultural research work.

These workshops are part of George Town Festival’s Arts for Humanity initiative.
