Your surrogate-cool-cousin guide to creativity and karaoke in China
Posted on by Jason Li
In case you haven’t noticed, organizational designer and ethnographer extraordinaire Christina Xu has joined us here at 88 Bar. She was responsible for our articles about Chinese people looking at QR codes, Chinese public mascots, amongst many others.
Just today, she’s announced her latest endeavor: Multi Entry, a guide to China of the young creative Chinese people. Through two months of fieldwork this fall, she’s aiming to produce a zine that will cover topics such as:
- The Tron-ification of the Chinese skyline
- 5 karaoke songs to kill the game in 2016
- What it’s like to run a hipster coffee shop in a town of “only” 700,000
- Cutting-edge Chinese fashion designers and how to buy from them on Taobao
- Apps for navigating China if you’re semi-literate
Alongside this project, she is running a Kickstarter campaign with some great rewards (language-learning flashcards, mystery souvenirs, VIP WeChat groups) – check it out and pledge now.
