Lower East

it’s the blog

This is the blog for lower east & lower east lab. A mix of stuff from our design & communication world (things we do, things we have done, and things we experience and get inspired from) and news from our lab – where all kind of actions and experiments can happen – that be workshops, creative meetings, urban safaris (with focus on start up, architecture, design or food), and events, dinners and a lot more.

Teaching & talking

February 18, 2018

We love to teach and talk about how to communicate! Last week the lower east core team went to the Danish island Bornholm to work with the students from the ceramics and glass programme at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. We met a group of dedicated students eager to learn – and exited to take new steps with their projects.

Our focus was to dress the students up to go out there and tell the world how great they are in what they are doing. We worked on how to on one side trusting your gut feeling and your intuition, and on the other side how to be disciplined, operate within systems and learn the needed communication tools. Also looking at how to find and develop your story and tell it – at the same time you still are developing your project and your art.

We were looking at different communication ‘platforms’; websites, facebook, blogs, instagram, postcards, business cards, handouts and all that jazz’. The students worked alone and in groups. We believe in working in teams, believe that what you don’t know some in your network may wan’t to help you with – we opened a lot of doors, talked about  a lot of opportunities – and left the island again… Now the students keep up the good work… Keep your ears and eyes open for that!

We’ll be back!
