Volume 8 of PechaKucha Night Chengdu is all about tools. We invite all speakers to explain what tools they use and how these tools are used to shape creativity into actual work. With this edition we bring an ode to the toolmakers that empower creators to decorate, lift up, and innovate the world around us.

With tools we include the obvious tools, such as the pencil of a painter, the instrument of a musician, software of a game developer, or even our bare hands. We also include abstract tools, such as “help” on the road of creation; friendships, inspiration from a book or a journey. 

“年度系列”的第二场PechaKucha选择了“工具”这个主题。我们希望邀请嘉宾们聊一聊他们在创意工作中所不可或缺的“工具”—— 它也许是创作者手中所不可或缺的那个具体的工具、器械和生产方式;而在更广阔的层面,它也是创作的思路、技巧和立场。我们相信,除了为创作者们提供了创意的实现条件,对“工具”本身的深入琢磨,也将启发不一样的思考。

无论是工匠手里锃锃发亮的钉锤,画家的一根铅笔,工作室的一个软件,音乐人的一台乐器;还是创作路上更加抽象的那份“帮助”,例如一项技能、一份友谊、一段经历、一次激动人心的旅行、一本爱不释手的书籍……

在创作中,在生活里,

在手边或在心里,朝夕陪伴你的“它”是什么?
