“Enter Pyongyang” is another stunning collaboration between city-branding pioneer JT Singh and flow-motion videographer Rob Whitworth. Blending time-lapse photography, acceleration and slow motion, HD and digital animation, they have produced a cutting‐edge panorama of a city hardly known, but one emerging on the visitor’s landscape as North Korea’s opening unfolds.
North Korea was the last country seemingly immune to change—but no longer. Recent years have witnessed mobile phone penetration, a surge in tourists, and even a marathon. Numerous special economic zones have been launched in cooperation with China, Russia, and South Korea, with railways planned linking all countries in the region. “Enter Pyongyang” captures not just the city, but this dynamism and sense of potential.
This video is the single most significant multi-media contribution to transcending clichés about North Korea as a society defined by reclusiveness and destitution. To travel there is to witness a proud civilization, though one caught in a Cold War time-warp. Korean cultural traditions are meticulously preserved and displayed in authentic richness. Anyone who has witnessed the awe-inspiring Mass Games knows that, with great sacrifice, North Koreans can pull off a performance unparalleled in its precision.

TRACK MEÆT brings together wayfinding, microfunding, and an exciting scavenger hunt for a night that is like no other.
Use your body and mind
(this time you won’t be blind)
To find your way around
The streets of E-town
A night of puzzles and games
Involving both brawns and brains!
Follow the clues (the “Tweets”)
For fun times and good eats!
Attendees will enjoy an evening of scavenger hunting and strategy. Starting from a central location, you’ll join an eight-person team to conquer the hunt and solve the puzzles. By the end of the evening, each team will discover the secret final location, where you’ll be treated to a celebratory feast and listen to Edmontonians pitch their cause/project. Finally, vote for the winner to receive your collective pot of gold!
Tickets are $25.00 (including fees). $10.00 of this ticket goes directly into the funding pot.
What is MEÆT?
MEÆT is a local crowdfunding event designed to bring us together for a meal and listen to a variety of home-grown ideas. The one thing all the presenters have in common is that they need your funding to bring their idea to reality.
You can (1) apply to present your project, or (2) experience the presentations and vote for your favorite. Though no matter which side of dining table you are on; you will enjoy a dinner with excellent conversation with like minding philanthropists. So come donate $10 towards something awesome!
The best presentation (as determined by the votes) receives the night’s funding.
Located in Siberia, Norilsk is the world’s northernmost city with a population of more than 100,000, and it’s not just one of the coldest cities of the world—it’s also one of the filthiest. Nickel ore smelting has transformed the landscape into one of the ten most polluted places on Earth.
