To paraphrase a Surrealist writer, Design must be made by all and not by one.
1000s of Answers to 26 Probing Questions at The Pub Project
The Pub Project is an ambitious attempt at cataloguing, through responses to a series of 26 questions, what all designers think and want to pass on to the world. 1000 answers to these thought-provoking, design-focussed questions will be revealed in a diverse assortment of performances throughout the night of the event.
It’ll be interesting to see if this event takes on surrealist overtones as the party goes on. The poll and resulting performance is reminiscent of Exquisite Corpse, a Surrealist game meant to utilize accident and collective thought to present the creative essence of the group involved.
AIGA SF Fall Fundraiser
An immersive evening of though [sic], performance and imbibition, unlike any we’ve had before â€” showcasing the second installment of the Pub Project, an ongoing, inclusive â€œpublicâ€-ation initiated to compel the design community to more openly discuss its hopes, dreams, pressing issues, and bones of contention. This year’s fundraiser/member party, 02: POST, is the climax of the Pub Projectâ€™s first initiative that engaged the design community through a series of 26 pointed, probing questions distributed through print and the web. This provocative and illuminating event will showcase all 1000 angry, inquisitive, thoughtful, and humor-tinged responses. It will also demand attendees to contribute more of their impressions through interactive exhibits, raffle giveaways, installations, and even improvised musical performances of the most provocative responses received, aided and abetted by good food, drink and AIGA San Francisco good cheer. It’s our biggest event of the year, and promises to be an unforgettable evening! In collaboration with the San Francisco Food Bank.
