Thinking or Knowing?
BY JOHAN VAN DE BEEK
@ VOL 22
ON JUN 04, 2014
Johan van de Beek, as a journalist, is cautious not to express opinions on topics he has not studied or examined. More often than not, however, studying certain subjects only increases their complexity. In this compelling presentation, Johan explains how he has learned to embrace complexity and resist the temptations of simplifying.

Dutch Marines Rowing Challenge
BY MARCO HEIJMANS
@ VOL 1
ON OCT 16, 2014
Wij zijn mariniers die sinds 1665 met Verbondenheid, Kracht & Toewijding voor elkaar zorgen en overal ter wereld unieke prestaties leveren. In 2015 gaan wij met de Dutch Marines Rowing Challenge (DMRC) van Rotterdam, via Vlissingen naar Londen roeien, een afstand van 350 kilometer. Dit om de 350ste verjaardag van het Korps Mariniers te vieren. Hiermee zamelen wij geld in voor mariniers die door missies, namens de Nederlandse samenleving, in de problemen zijn gekomen en tevens de nabestaanden van collega's die ons zijn ontvallen.
From MechaKucha to PechaKucha!
BY SUELI BRODIN
@ VOL 126
ON JUN 24, 2015
"PechaKucha embraces all the Mechakucha-jin of the world to come and share their ideas!"
Hailing from the Netherlands, Sueli Brodin, editor at the United Nations University, PechaKucha's Maastricht organiser, and our dear friend, pays a visit to Pechakucha Night Tokyo to deliver this compelling presentation at SuperDeluxe about, of all things, PechaKucha!
Growing up very multiculturally (Dutch, French, Brazillian, Japanese), and having lived in Japan for part of her youth, she describes herself as a “Mechakucha-jin” - a hybrid word that borrows from Japanese, evoking an image of per person who is "all-jumbled up." Sueli talks about her personal background and how after years of never quite fitting in, she found a home in the PechaKucha team of Maastricht. She shares her gratitude for Pechkucha and how it continues to offer a home for people like her, and a global stage to everyone wishing to inspire others with their “mechakucha” side.
WOW! How inspiring! Thanks Sueli! We Love You!
This was "Presentation of the Day" on July 17, 2015.
The Netherlands, a Transparent Society? Think Again...
BY SJORS VAN BEEK
@ VOL 31
ON SEP 07, 2016
Transparency is of the utmost importance for a healthy, democratic society. A free press is the gatekeeper for that transparency and the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) is one of the tools to achieve transparency. The Netherlands prides itself for being an open, transparent society. Unjustly so, according to investigative Sjors van Beek, who has met many locked doors during his career spanning over 25 years.

BY LIMINAL PROJECTS (OMAR KAHN AND LAURA GARÓFALO)
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
"Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives."
In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.

Dutch Prime Minister Experiences PechaKucha
PechaKucha has always been big in the Netherlands -- PechaKucha Nights have been held in 16 Dutch cities -- and imagine our surprise to see even the Prime Minister experience PechaKucha first-hand, as he did on this episode of Dutch TV program Uitzending Gemist (the segment starts at the 9-minute mark). He even gives it a shot himself, albeit a shortened 5-slide only example.
Putting the Fun into Funky Spaces
"So after a lot of beer we decided to make a big, traveling park that flies to several locations all over the world." HUNK Design duo Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos come from Rotterdam, Netherlands and here they show off some of their radical interior and exterior design work. In "Putting the Fun into Funky Spaces" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 116 we see that from funky interior redesigns and remodels, to outdoor patterned park spaces using artificial grass, HUNK is changing the way people use and interact with space.
The Orchestra in Transition
“In order to survive the orchestra needs to search for a balance between artistic tradition and economic reason.” Director General and Artistic Director for the South Netherlands Philharmonic Stefan Rosu knows that the classical symphony orchestra is facing dramatic change in recent years. In “The Orchestra in Transition” from PKN Maastricht Vol. 23, Stefan shows us that orchestras must adapt to survive, and he goes into depth on how it can do so without losing its essence in the process.

Keep Calm and Carillon
If a 4000-pound bronze bell isn’t heavy metal, what is?

In “Keep Calm and Carillon” from PKN Maastricht Vol. 24 Frank tells us he’s “a DJ with a very nice instrument,” how he has taken bells out of the tower, and is now playing for audiences.

Greetings from the Colonies: Postcards from a Painful Past
"Some [postcards] promoted colonial ideology and served to uphold the supposed hierarchy of the world, with white societies on top." The Golden Age of postcards (1907-1915) coincided with the popularization of anthropology and renewed interest in European colonies. Colonial postcards from this time illustrate some of the most prominent ideas of colonialism and beliefs regarding ethnic hierarchy. In Greetings from the Colonies: Postcards from a Painful Past from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 27, writer and scholar Inge Oosterhoff retraces these ideas, as well as the ways in which France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and other colonizing countries viewed and propagandized their “colonized peoples.”
