Vol. 16 Inspire – pechakuchanightvancouver

In the aftermath of last month’s devastating earthquake, PechaKucha Headquarters in Tokyo is planning a global initiative to raise money for the re-building effort. Many of the 400 PechaKucha cities will host a presentation on April 16th, with all proceeds going to Architecture For Humanity. A similar event last year helped raised money for the rebuilding of a school in Haiti, following a disaster there. You can find out more about our global event here: http://global-day.pecha-kucha.org/

Inspire Japan:
The 20×20 presentations will be focused on 4 main themes INSPIRE, JAPAN, THE ISSUES, RECOVERY. They could be simply about things that inspire us, or Japan how it has inspired you. Great ideas or solutions that help deal with the issues at hand whether earthquake, tsunami or nuclear – and the road to recovery.

PRESENTERS:
Michael Green – MGB ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN
Linus Lam – Artsy-Dartsy

Travel Media Assoc of Canada Social Storytime – Roundup

“Art and Tech are Old Pals” at Social Media House SXSW 2011

I shared a spiel called “Art and Tech are Old Pals” at Wordcamp Vancouver in a full version but shared a spontaneous and shorter version while at Social Media Clubhouse at SXSW 2011.

In this spiel, i discuss a “people’s history” of media creation and my tactics and thoughts about how to foster creativity by viewing the past and participating in the creation of the future.


During SXSW Interactive Festival, Dave shares stories of analog arts and crafts, sparking creativity, using technology to tell stories and remaining interesting using examples from historical artists and his own experience.

You’ll see lots of interesting props pulled from an old-timey suitcase and a few laughs along the way plus practical tips you can implement to enhance your own creative process.

Note: Thanks to Social Media Clubhouse for filming. Available also on Vimeo.com, posted here for posterity.
