Visiting Workshop in Yokohama|(re)DISCOVER YOKOHAMA SEASON2

What do you see in Yokohama? It is a trial to rediscover the image of city of Yokohama and time that is becoming invisible recently, by re-editing and re-constructing sub-cultural media such as film, literature, music, anime and manga, crossing space and time. Students, business-person, people who is interested in those media or Yokohama are all welcomed to join. The workshop is aiming at representation of Yokohama enjoying the process with our unique and art-based method, bringing your favorite works on Yokohama in your mind. Any creative skills and experiences are not necessary. Why don’t we share each one’s image on City of Yokohama to find out the things forgotten and the future together?
*This workshop was originally one of the events of the Urban Planning Conference in Yokohama City University 2017 and it has been reprogrammed as a series of workshops throughout the year of 2018 like a spin-off event.
