Exploring the "UNESCO Design City KOBE" in a bus

Photograph by Rie Nitta





In 2008, Kobe was appointed as a UNESCO City of Design. To commemorate the appointment, many design related events are held every year around the 16th of October, the actual day of the appointment. Among this year's events is a "travelling editorial team meeting in a bus". I am happy to be a member of this editorial team, together with Lucas Badtke-Berkow from Knee High Media and Duncan Brotherton from OOO Projects. We will look around Kobe as a kind of research for a prototype media which spreads Kobe's creative contributions and potentials to its citiziens as well as to the design world.

There are 10 seats for guests to join our tour, more here, or join us on facebook.

And many thanks to Tetsuya Goto from OOO Projects.
