Lab Café Special/Community-University Collaboration Project 10th Anniversary Program - "10 Years Since the Community-University Coordination Project 'We're Getting a Station!': The Possibilities of 3-Way Cooperation Between Company, University, and NPO"

2016-10-28 (Fri) 19:00 - 21:00

October 2016 marks 10 years of community-university collaboration in "Nakanoshima Communication Café 'We're Getting a Station!'" the predecessor to Art Area B1. Beginning with a project in which we experienced the possibilities of three-way cooperation between company, university, and NPO at the construction site of Naniwa-bashi station that has lead up to the present, Art Area B1 has continued these 10 years of activity while trying and carrying out various projects of its own. So in October's Lab Café, we'll look back on the past 10 years with former steering committee members from over the years, while discussing what needs to be done to see 10 more.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

Through cooperation between NPO, corporation, and university, the "Nakanoshima Communication Café" was established during construction of Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line to explore the possibilities of the station in an urban space. As a successor to the Nakanoshima Communication Café, the concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
