The Streets Belong to Us

PRESENTED ON SEP 16, 2015
IN TOKYO @ BRAZILIAN LIFESTYLE POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA

"We can take over the streets. We can have fun there because the city belongs to us."

In "The Streets Belong to Us" from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, content creator Mateus Bagatini shines the spotlight on Brazilian street party culture, but not the carnival kind with which we're all familiar! Exhausted and bored with the exclusive and over-priced club scene, a new generation of partiers have decided to take the club to the street, hosting DJs and dancers under bridges, in the parks, or even in once-abandoned commercial spaces, bringing with them more people, cheap booze, the authorisation of the city, and well ... what looks like a damn good time. Not just simply focussed on cutting loose, the parties have taken on numerous forms, often with a social message and have successfully demonstrated being an agent of change for the betterment of cities. As a citizen-driven culture, at parties in Brazil's public spaces everyone is invited ...after all the city belongs to us!

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, November 6th, 2015.

The Necessity of Parties

BY ROB KRISTJANSSON
@ VOL 14 ON MAY 16, 2013

Rob Kristjansson has worked on hundreds of events as the City of Winnipeg’s Special Events Liaison, and here he tells us about something he learned as a party planner; celebrations are, as he says, "not a nice to have, but a need to have." They bring communities together and enrich our lives by reminding us just how good it is to be alive and be together.

Silent Dinner Parties

BY HONI RYAN
@ VOL 6 ON JUN 20, 2013

A Silent Dinner Party is no ordinary dinner party. Hosted by Honi Ryan around the world, there are certain stipulations to uphold: guests cannot use any form of vocal or written communication. With 35 performances in 11 cities (8 countries thus far!) Silent Dinner Parties are a means to bridge cultural divides, and function as a sort of "social sculpture."
