The workshop in Shanghai was amazing! I had 23 participants who worked their asses off. Very nice people, mostly from China and the Netherlands. Lots of talent.
The theme of the World expo is “Better city, better life”. The Dutch pavilion is called “Happy street”.
Singer/songwriter Wotienke wrote her song “City Stories” especially for the workshop. She wrote it in Amsterdam and recorded it with her band in Pržno (Czech). The workshop was organised in The Hague and held in Shanghai. Participants came from Amsterdam, Groningen, Bergen, Shanghai, Taiwan, Beijing, Kasinger, Lanzhou, Zhengzhou, Toronto and more.
They all animated their own city stories for the music video.
The workshop was part of the “Don’t believe the type” event, organised by graphic design studio Trapped in Suburbia. There were also workshops by Yomar Augusto and Underware and lectures by Trapped in Suburbia, Yomar and Underware and an exposition with type from the Hague, that also contained some of my letters.
It was a very long, but great day.
