The Trail to Walter

BY MEL LANGTON
@ VOL 3 ON OCT 07, 2015

Lincoln Barons' Charter Trail was part of the 800th year Magna Carta Celebrations and artist Mel Langton takes us through a fun behind the scenes of her work on Sir Walter Style (aka William Malet a feudal baron from Somerset). 

All 25 barons lined the streets of Lincoln during the summer and were later auctioned raising almost £170,000 in one night. Lincolnites will miss them but the funds raised contributed to fight hunger and poverty in the UK. Well done barons!

Just Roll with It...

BY JANET VINCENT
@ VOL 7 ON JUN 07, 2016

“I think something that attracts a lot of people to roller derby is the culture of it all, like you can create a whole new persona identity.” 

In Just Roll with it from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 7, Roller Girl, “Jammin” Janet Vincent talks about her love of roller derby in this presentation. She was really shy when she moved from Costa Rica to US for college. Then her family members encouraged her to join the roller derby team, and she found out her passion of roller derby. Now she is attending the roller derby competitions around the world with her teammates.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, June 30th, 2016.
