Würdevoll leben bis Zuletzt

BY GISELA TEXTOR
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 27, 2014

Jeder Mensch hat ein Recht auf würdevolles Leben. Und ebenso auf ein würdevolles Sterben. Nur wird das gern verschwiegen. Denn Sterben und Tod sind unangenehme Themen, mit denen sich keiner so Recht auseinander setzen möchte, selbst wenn ein naher Angehöriger im Sterben liegt.

Mit Ihrem Vortrag macht Gisela Textor, Leiterin des Koblenzer Hospiz, deshalb auf diesen Umstand aufmerksam. Und Sie zeigt, was die Mitarbeiter des Hospiz täglich leisten, um ihren Patienten und deren Angehörigen die letzten Tage so angenehm und würdevoll wie möglich zu gestalten.

It is also possible to live a life smarter, than bigger, to take steps in the right direction of keep plastics out of the enviroment.

Living Differently

BY JAN BIERHOFF

An Active Life, Is a Life Well Lived

BY LINDSAY SOMERS
@ VOL 30 ON MAY 11, 2017

Faced with the ultimate end, Lindsay Somers discusses how her Mother's lust for life even in her final months inspired her to chase her dream. Her work embodies her Mother's spirit and allows it to live on every day.  She bares her heart and soul in this beautiful ode to her Mother, the Thursday before Mother's Day.  

Take a moment to stop and smell the roses, watch the clouds roll across the summer sky, and take a deep breath in the middle of all the bustling about. 

AND HUG YOUR MOM!

A Creative Community for Designers in Sydney, Living with Schizophrenia, and a PKN in Brighton

Presentations In this presentation (from PKN Sydney Vol. 21) by Anna Lise de Lorenzo you'll find out all about &company, a project that gives emerging designers the opportunity to build their design experience within a creative community. They provide mentoring, facilitate production with local craftspeople and manufacturers, and take care of the marketing and distribution of the design. &company is on a mission to give designers a leg-up as they develop into capable and confident professionals. Not just for designers, the new Pop-Up premises in The Rocks invites anyone in to come and make something in the workshop, learn new skills in a class, or check out the work by their designers in the gallery and store. Poet and rapper Pablo Xavier suffers from schizophrenia, but he feels much better now. Through poetry and images, he explains how hard it has been. A very personal and touching presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 9). Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, first for PKN London Vol. 7 (pictured above), and then for PKN Gainesville Vol. 4, which are happening on June 28 and 29 respectively. Photos We have one set of photos to share with you today, taken at last week's PKN Brighton Vol. 11 -- you're seeing one of those photos above. Of course, you can always find plenty of other event photos on our PechaKucha Night Flickr account. Calendar Back from the weekend, you can start your week with tonight's PKN Rotterdam Vol. 30. Tomorrow (June 26), you can look for the following two events: PKN Amersfoort Vol. 7 and PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 25.

Living in Sublimity

"I like the way the markings imply an effort to impose some sort of order on infinity." Dozier Bell, an artist in Rockland, Maine, elaborates on her drawings that encompass natural and conscious elements of the world. In "Living in Sublimity" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 we see her artwork, in its simplicity, lessens our human understanding of these natural forces and gives us a greater sense of sublimity to our surroundings.

Don't mess with Texas! (Photo by Scott Ball.)

7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living

“I’m that annoying friend that can’t just sit and watch a movie, I knit and watch a movie. But I also make really awesome homemade gifts for everybody so you know– they can only get so mad about it.” When you hear the word “homestead” what do you think of? I think of the old west in the US of A’s past, of folk heading out into the unknown with just their wits and wares and know-how. In 7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Volume 28, speaker Kimberly Coburn would do just fine out there on her own given that she is helping revive the hand-me-down knowledge that was once passed from generation to generation but has somehow stopped now. Sewing, smithy work, growing food, glass making, and more! Tune in to hear Kimberly make the case for bringing back the “old knowledge”!
