BY RACHEL MASON
@ VOL 2
ON OCT 16, 2014
Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

Penticton Vol. 2
Penticton's second Pecha Kucha night was a great success! We had a great turn out which, for a small city, attests to the appeal of the Pecha Kucha format. The presentations covered a diverse range of subjects by some really amazing people. Austin Hawkins spoke of his personal journey and vision as an architect in a way that made you see what his heart truly desires from his own practice. Michele Johnson shared the conception and successful launch of the language revitalization school for the Indigenous Okanagan People. Peter Wolf gave an emotive and insightful journey of his meditative growth over 1 year constructing a house designed by Landform Architects. Emily Elizabeth shared beautiful images that inspired the guests and explained some of the creative process involved in making her amazing beautiful jewelry pieces. To wrap it up Vince Freeborn celebrated the first year anniversary of his email journal The High Scribe. As always, Vince made the crowd laugh and the High Scribe experience was made complete with a sticker book of his 20 x 20 Pecha Kucha slides! It was a brilliant idea and had our guests greedily grabbing and trading stickers to be the first to fill up their books! Unfortunately I did not record the presentations correctly so once I reformat them I will post them for you to watch. We have already filled up the next roster for the January 2016 Pecha Kucha night! That is how inspiring these nights are! Check out Vince Freeborn's sticker book here. If you like his drawings and want to see more go to www.thehighscribe.com and get subbed up! In my opinion it is one of the best newsletters out there.
