B52 – Emerging Designers make their mark:
B52 is a bunch of emerging Designers full of passion, curiosity and freshness. They are a group of self-driven, self-motivated students at KMUTT’s School of Architecture and Design who want to make their creative mark and leave outstanding footprints behind.
B52 is a group of students who agreed to organize and meet on a regular basis to practise and enjoy the art of conversation by using the universal intellectual standards (=Critical Thinking Standards). Take part and improve your skills which give a beautiful mind! Critical thinking can improve your academic performance. Grasp the value of critical thinking in daily life.
B52 is for those who want to enjoy thinking and for those who want to develop their skills at thinking. Thinking is no different from any other skill or hobby – if you want to get enjoyment from it, you need to put in some effort. Walking along the road will not make you a better tennis player. You need deliberate practice in a place that is set up for it: Join B52 @ SoA+D. The kick-start makes the first B52 Project "Avant-Garde Cinema for Designers”.
B52 is a non-profit group established by a bunch of SoA+D first year students who are not afraid to open their minds and who love to hear what other people think. What we do is screening alternative Art, Design and Documentary Films and encourage the audience to speak their minds. Thought-provoking, fun and of course critical, the screening session ends with some aftertaste for you to ponder about later. The Organizers as a host, handling questions and observations from the viewers and provides a brief introduction before screening. Freedom of expression is our greatest value and a basic human right.
B52 follows strict to the idea of alternative films, saying the programme should not be redundant with commercial cinemas and film rental shops. B52 provides film alternatives and diversity. The aim is not to screen mainstream films for the sake of making it more attractive to general viewers, particularly young students. The current programme comprises award-winning works from around the world. The selected movies are not too abstract and it is not too difficult to follow.
Take care, sunny greetings, see you !
The B52 Organisers: Freshies Aof, Win, Kao & AJ Chris
