Test Unit 2017: Pecha Kucha Talks - Occupying the Post-Industrial City
Like many cities, Glasgow has a wealth of vacant buildings and sites following industrial decline. As demand for space changes, we need to explore processes that are less capital intensive and quicker to respond to people and change.

Test Unit is a summer school and events programme that aims to nurture a relationship between people and place through building capacity to initiate grass-roots projects, and place culture, people and education at the heart of regeneration.  

This Pecha Kucha will feature Test Unit 2017's five facilitators who'll be sharing their individual practice and the 'prototypes-in-progress' at this mid-way point. They'll be joined by other leading cultural innovators exploring the central theme of 'Occupying the Post-Industrial City'.

Speakers on the night:

Elie Lakin, Jason Bruges Studio

Amica Dall, Assemble

Valentina Karga

Ainslie Roddick, CCA

Angus Farquhar, NVA

David Cook

Chris Leslie


Kat Loudon, Design By Zag

Plus more to be announced soon!

Produced by Agile City

Agile City is a platform for research and events exploring grass-roots approaches to city development. Often we find regeneration focused on physical and definitive outcomes instead of designing projects that are responsive to social and economic change. We are interested in holistic design and explore the business models, processes and cross-disciplinary practices that have a positive and sustainable impact on our cities.

Pecha Kucha is a simple idea: 20 images for 20 seconds each making talks that last just 6:40mins. The event has gone viral with a huge online following and events in over 800 cities worldwide.
Its a format that keeps things concise and moving at a rapid pace.
