NEXT EVENT VOL 15

Save the date. We're back!

So I've been busy with a bunch of home improvement projects. What better opportunity to have a backyard PechaKucha? Come hang and chat around 7pm. Presentations will begin as soon as it's dark enough. We'll have some drinks and snacks, but everyone is encouraged to bring your own to share.

Bring your folding chairs or blankets. It's a tight street with ditches, so please park at Rawls Byrd Elementary parking lot, just a short stroll around the corner. Googlie mappy it, should be easy to find.

This is the official call to presenters. Get in touch through any of the usual channels. Hope to see you there.

Because Chickens

BY GRETCHEN BEDELL
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 17, 2015

"This is the stuff dreams are made of, which is why you should have chickens in your backyard because you can have experiences like these."

In "Because Chickens", from PechaKucha Williamsburg Vol. 14, Gretchen Bedell shares the hazards, perils, and general ridiculousness of suburban chicken keeping. She explains how her "Mexican ground parrots" as she calls them to circumnavigate the homeowners association's chicken ban. are basically just like fish for the backyard, but they lay eggs you actually want to eat. You bound to learn something interesting in this quirky PechaKucha, for example how one can actually reclaim eggs from thieving snakes. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015.

The Dropbox: Saving Lives. One Baby at a Time.

BY JANE KIM
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 17, 2015

What does it take to save unwanted babies? Every year, hundreds of unwanted babies are abandoned on the streets of Seoul, South Korea and many do not survive. Compelled by his love and compassion for such children, Pastor Lee Jong-Rak builds a safe haven for these unwanted babies in the form of a "Baby Box." During a recent trip to South Korea, Jane Kim witnessed the reality of the situation and the love that compels people, like Pastor Lee, to sacrifice so much—even for just one child.

Cascading Dreams

BY DOROTHY FAGAN

In this presentation we get to see some of the results of Dorothy Fagan's 6 week artist residency in France. And yet, through the PechaKucha process we also get to hear and see Dorothy take us through her inspriations, techniques, processes, details, and materials used to arrive at those finished pieces. The work is stunning. The background is fascinating.
