In July 2016 the Mayor of London launched the #LondonIsOpen campaign, sending a vibrant message to the world that London is a united city where everyone is welcome. 
 
Pecha Kucha is proudly joining this campaign with our 12th London event: #PKNLDN12. Taking place at London's museum of the home, the Geffrye Museum, the evening will host inspirational talks from speakers on the theme of WELCOME. It also happens during London Design Festival - an annual event showcasing London's design heritage, when the world's design community comes to town.
 
Hosting the evening is author and journalist Sarah Thompson. Among other subjects, Sarah has written about the surprising homes found in some particularly unwelcoming buildings, and about the mixed-up experience of welcoming a child into the world. Welcomed by Sarah, our speakers will then offer their interpretation of the word WELCOME. In true Pecha Kucha style, each speaker has 20 seconds to talk us through 20 slides. With only six minutes to share their thoughts, talks are always fast, funny and fascinating. 
 

Our wonderful line up of speakers includes - 

Sarah Buxton / Observational Strategist / In 20 slides Sarah will explain how to tell a great story, to build a narrative that will conjure a feeling of instant connection, and a sense of belonging - no matter the medium you choose to use / http://observereffect.io/author/sarah/

Welcome!

BY SIMONA POP
@ VOL 12 ON SEP 19, 2016

In 'Welcome' a talk given by Simona Pop at PechaKucha London Vol 12, Simona definitely pops!

Simona takes us on a weird and wacky tour through all things that represent 'Welcome' to her - such as the PINEAPPLE!! - Any guest who was invited to a party where a whole pineapple was displayed, knew that no expense was spared in guaranteeing the guests' enjoyment. It was this that made the crowned fruit the high symbol of social events and became the meaning of welcome, friendship, and hospitality.
