Sergey Kasich and a group of students from Strelka are planning a visit of Shanghai and its hackerspace, XinCheJian, on December 17th from 19h00 to 21h00.
Each year Strelka brings its students to one of the metropolis of the world to do research on the theme of DiY technologies and creative communities. The students are all young (23-32 years old) active persons that have already done something in different spheres of urban culture.
They are looking forward to a lecture about the space, show & tell, Q&A session and a small discussion with residents of the XinCheJian space. Members with interesting projects are invited to join in to welcome our Russian guests.
Strelka is an interdisciplinary institution, founded in Moscow, Russia 3 years ago. Its main topic is Urbanism and everything related to big cities and people, living there.
Strelka Institute is a non-profit organization aimed at generating knowledge, producing new ideas and making them come true. Strelka lecture halls and studios provide free tuition for international young specialists with backgrounds in architecture, design, social sciences, etc. Strelka courtyard hosts open lectures, conferences and film screenings. Strelka bar provides both a place for the social networking of creative people from around the globe and a source of Strelka’s financial backing: what the bar earns goes to support the institute.
Strelka is an educational centre that is open to the world and ready to share. What happens here spills out into social exchanges. The output of the institute is multidimensional: it includes graduates and their projects and involves a growing network of creativity. But, most importantly, it helps shape the reality of tomorrow.
