Last semester, 25 KNU students including me took part in a project to help people find nice cafés in Daegu. We were enrolled in a class called ‘The Sociology of Culture’ in the fall semester 2016, taught by Dr. Chun, Sun-young, and we worked together to make a ‘Daegucafemap’ using Instagram.
During the class lectures, Professor Chun led the discussion about efficient ways of uploading the contents about cafés and promoting them. Classes involved individual work as well as team activities. The personal assignment was mainly about uploading the contents, while the group work focused on promoting the contents.
The Daegucafemap recommends a lot of characteristic cafés in Daegu for local residents, visitors, and foreigners. This map contains about 230 contents on many kinds of cafés. The contents include our impression of the cafés and helpful information, including the address, phone number, and what we recommend on the menu. We uploaded posts about many cafés with distinctive themes such as pets, books, study, celebrities, desserts, music and complex cultural space. In the complex cultural space, there are many interesting events such as social gatherings, lectures, parties on a variety of topics. Among the various cafés, Angie's Coffee & Antique Gallery was the most memorable café for me. This café is at the foot of Mt. Palgong and is run by a unique owner. She loves antique props and dishes, so she has collected them for about 20 years. She wanted to share her happiness with many people, so displayed them in her café. The café took its name, Angie in New Zealand, from her name. Therefore, visitors can realize that the café has her own stories.
This project was based on our belief in ‘the power of space’: good people make good spaces, and good spaces make good people. Our team felt that it is meaningful to share good places with other people. We hope many people can relax, find inspiration, make pleasant memories, and create happiness in their daily lives. If you want to bring more happiness into your daily life, please check out the ‘Daegucafemap’! Our account is also available in English too!
