On Personal Risk-Taking and Courage

@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

"Don't give up on your dreams, and give uncertainty a chance."

Michelle Claire shares stories about the risks that she has taken in her life, and that have brought her from San Antonio, Texas, to Washington, D.C. -- everything from white-river rafting, telling her mother she wanted to become an artist, and personal decisions about love and friendship. Speaking on PechaKucha has been on her bucket list for a long time-- and we're glad she took the risk, at PechaKucha Alexandria Vol.1

Exploring Empty Houses

@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

Emily Atwood is an architect who answered an ad for someone to draw house plans, and ended up documenting hundreds of empty houses as they were preparing to be sold. In her presentation, she takes us inside the homes, guiding us to see the unexpected beauty in their architectural details and the private worlds of the owners who occupied them.

Saying “YES”!: The Road to Untold Research

@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

Monica Sanchez and Kate Vasiloff are two friends who, a year ago, would never have imagined that they would quit their jobs and start a business together. Yet here they are, at PechaKucha Alexandria Vol.1, having done just that AND finishing each other's sentences. In their presentation they share their entrepreneurial journey, including some fascinating insights from their first project to document public opinion about rights to abortion in El Savador.



City Focus: Alexandria

As one of the newest cities to join PechaKucha's creative community, PechaKucha Night 
Alexandria graces this week's City Focus. Located along the Potamac River, Alexandria has preserved America's colonial culture through its 18th century style architecture, boutique shops, and museums. Having held their very first volume this month, be sure to keep a look out for fascinating presentations from historically rich Alexandria! See you all at PechaKucha Night Alexandria Vol.2!

About the City's Organizers

  • Nami Ishihara

    I am a group facilitator who loves to connect people and ideas. I believe that everyone has something original and interesting inside them, and PechaKucha is a great way to share that something special!

  • Ling-Yun Tang

    I am a sociologist interested in the intersection of creativity, the arts, and urban design. I have taught and researched internationally, and am always on the lookout for communities of artists and designers with a shared interest in building a more beautiful, inclusive, and inspiring world.

  • José Caicedo

    José R. Caicedo is a creative leader, problem solver, communicator and visual artist. He is also an achiever, a learner, an empath and a glass half-full perspective on the world around him. Above all he seeks to connect with others through real life stories and appreciation.

  • Andy Monaco

    As a "stay at home" architect and father, I love to find opportunities to keep my mind engaged in the world of design. It is all around us! I am interested in adaptive reuse and the layers of meaning that can be applied to the environment at all different scales, from buildings to products.
