As a teen Sergej got sucked into anime culture, however it turned good to him as he is the founder of nowJapan – most spectacular Japanese cultural festival in the Baltic States. Sergej noticed there was something missing in the lives of Baltic tribes, and so he started a new series of events MADE IN JAPAN, dedicated to encourage creative industry collaboration of Japan and Baltic States.

Vilnius of Tomorrow

BY SERGEJ GRIGORJEV
@ VOL 130 ON NOV 25, 2015

"We invited electronica producers and singers from Japan to come to Lithuania to have a concert at a traditional Catholic church. Not to be mistaken, this was an LSD dream coming true."
 
In Vilnius of Tomorrow from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 130, cultural planner, graphic designer, and altogether eccentric Lithuanian, Sergej Grigorjev spotlights some of the hidden creativity that can be found in one of eastern Europe's most beautiful and forward-thinking capitals, Vilnius. He shares how the community is taking old traditions and re-imagining them in new ways to cultivate fresh perspectives and world-wide attention. And as part of Vilnius' creative resurgence, he has started a series of events - MADE IN JAPAN - with a focus on creative collaboration between Japan and the Baltic States.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, December 11th, 2015.
