Explore George Town through its juxtapositions of architecture, objects, people, food and more. By taking the city as a source of inspiration and looking at good-practice examples on placemaking and storytelling from other cities, participants will learn how to build a compelling design experience based on local everyday cultures. Each participant will be asked to choose a focus area, whether it is product, graphic design, service/experience design or spatial/architecture design.

Sali Sasaki started her career as a freelance illustrator and designer but left the design world to work as UNESCO staff over a period of 4 years. Since 2011, she has been exploring the potential of creative development in various countries of Southeast Asia by organising workshops, lectures, events and cultural research work.
