Comedy TV in Turkey, a Primer on Schizophrenia, and a Teaser from Guatemala City

Presentations
Can Yücel Metin's presentation (from PKN Istanbul Vol. 14) is all about a comedy TV series called Aye, Thanks! that airs Friday nights in Turkey. He is an actor on the show, as well as a writer.

Presented as part of a special PechaKucha Night that was themed on "schizophrenia," Philippe Conus is a psychiatrist who used his presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 8) to cover all aspects of the disease, debunking many aspects that are mistaken by many.

She has developed programs in partnership with local, state and federal government as well as education, health, welfare and cross-cultural contexts. Currently her creative work is focused on digital technology and culture, which has seen her travel to India delivering ‘info-activism’ workshops at the 2012 International AIDS Conference Official Hub The Sex Worker Freedom Festival in Kolkata India, for sex workers and their allies.

Under her leadership the organisation grew to become internationally recognised for an award wining body of work at the intersections, of art, culture, community and peace-building. Her visionary approach to funding and artistic programming, saw the organisation receive significant long-term investment from state, federal and philanthropic funding including becoming a Key Producer with the Australia Council for the Arts.
