Featuring talk summaries and insights from our 2013 symposium
Despina Hadjilouca, Yukie Nagasawa and Nina Honiball met at Central Saint Martins while studying on the MA Narrative Environments course. They share a passion for narrative, which they perceive to be a combination of STORY plus TELLING.
Despina has a multi-disciplinary background. She is one of the co-founding members of eclective, a London-based collaborative design group. She is also one of the founding members of Schedia, a design collective which promotes socially engaged design in and amongst young creative thinkers in Cyprus.
Nina’s background is in graphic design for print and motion graphic. She is a part time design lecturer and PhD candidate at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. Nina works in the field of social design and community engagement.
Yukie comes from a background in spatial design having completed her Masters degree at Central Saint Martins. She is also one of the co-founding members of eclective. Since joining Fluid / Soundings in 2013, Yukie has been involved in the community engagement and consultation process for a range of redevelopment projects from a single tunnel to a mixed-use scheme masterplan across London. She enjoys developing and testing a unique methodology for understanding people and exploring the social value of a place.
Behind the events of a symposium sit many hours of work, between Despina, Nina and Yukie, and also with the speakers they draw together. Delicious meals take place, where wine is plentiful and ideas are being discussed as to how the guests use narrative in their work, whether or not they find it important, and what they might talk about at the symposium. The end result is a symposium structured around gathering and ideas swapping.
