Scamming Your Way to a Better Community

@ VOL 10 ON OCT 14, 2013

Josh Scheuerman began his career by scamming his way into concerts by posing as photographer. Yet what he was really after was a way to connect with a community he associated with. Those early years led to work at SLUG magazine, which led to Josh publishing his own skate and snowboarding magazines. His art passion led him to start a local art adoption program. Josh's desire to connect with and improve his community has driven much of his life and his selfless actions improve the lives around him and the larger community.


Analog Creation in a Digital World

@ VOL 16 ON OCT 16, 2015

“What you use influences what you create. I say, take that into consideration, try putting down the macbook, pull out a notebook, and get your Hemingway on.”

In Analog Creation in a Digital World from Pechakucha Night Salt Lake City Vol. 16Tyson Call, who is a writer, photographer, and motorcycle rider, talks about his story. For Tyson, however, sitting down to write on a computer creates too many distractions. Receiving a typewriter as a gift opened up a whole new perspective on the creative process and created a connection to the inner workings of other great writers like Hemmingway, Steinbeck, and Hunter S. Thompson. In this presentation, Tyson, muses on analog creation in a digital world and asks, "What have you done with a piece of paper? Nothing!"
