This collaborative event, which combines design, art and craftsmanship, was created by Finnish jewellery designer and visual artist Jaana Tuomisto and Chinese designer Ding Yi. In the discussions and the hands-on workshops that follow, Yi and Tuomisto talk about how they use ink as a medium for their art and design projects. During the art process they merge ink from the East with Western influences.

PechaKucha Night 2018

20 images x 20 seconds – the fast-paced PechaKucha builds upon the idea of Tokyo-based architects’ office Klein Dytham: the speakers are allowed to use only 20 images, and they only have 20 seconds to talk about each image. The concept, which was brought to Finland by Helsinki Design Week, has received wide popularity since then and will continue to provide interesting notes from specialists in different fields during this year’s festival. Entrance fee 20€/10€. This event is now sold out!
