Disabling Labelling

@ VOL 3 ON SEP 22, 2015

"By and large, most people thought it was time for change. And I was going to be part of that change."

In "Disabling Labelling" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3, writer, mentor, and idealist Ann Hawkins passionately talks about equal opportunity and the modern world lessons that she insists we must learn that race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, and all the various labels that we are so accustomed to assigning each other, have very little to do with the kind of people we actually are or how effective we can be in the world. "It's time to tidy up our language" she adds referring to limitations labels give us, concluding "we owe it to the next generation."

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, October 15th, 2015.

Ravi Jetshan

Ravi Jetshan (Ravior) has been a jewelry maker since 1982, and he presented some of his work at the recent PechaKucha Night in Mauritius Vol. 2. That city's organizer, Stephen Ng, writes this about Ravi: Volume 2 was certainly highlighted by Ravior, a jewelry making company led by Ravi Jetshan since 1982 -- "or" means gold in French and in Creole, Mauritius' very own dialect that Ravi uses when naming some of his collections. One thing you'll soon realize with Ravi is that he really holds a lot of affection towards his culture, his tradition, his country, and he perfectly translates all of that through his designs. Add to this the fact that he has traveled the world and speaks six languages -- the audience at Vol. 2 could well understand how the man delivers such great creativity, innovation, and attention to detail. "The success of Ravior is essentially the product of fine-tuned teamwork by groomed professionals equipped with multiple skills reinforced by continuous advanced training. Rigour in craft and skill is the key to quality production for each and every jewellery piece, all this driven by professional and civic ethics." This was taken from, where more of his collections can be viewed. At the start of his presentation this is what Ravi had to say in Creole: "Ene le monde sans bijou, c'est ene ene le monde sans lamour." Literally, a world without jewelry is a world without love...


Unsanctioned Racing, Chance Meetings at Guido's (With Photos), and More Photos from Hong Kong

Presentations In his presentation (from PKN Chattanooga Vol. 11), Jim Farmer takes a look at all manner of unsanctioned racing, from the nostalgic to the crazy, to the plain old fun. As we discover in her presentation (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 3), Diane Firtell goes out and takes photos of people she meets at the Guido's grocery store (and sometimes other places), a project that then saw her add computer "painting" to eliminate the visual noise in the background of the photos. Posters For today's additions to the Tumblr blog, we start with a look at the flyer and poster for the upcoming PKN Guimaraes Vol. 4. We've also added the poster for PKN Castellon de la Plana Vol. 2  Photos Adding to the photo gallery for last week's PKN Hong Kong Vol. 12 we've already shared, here are two more Facebook galleries to share, with photos by Cheehaur Tan and Vic Shing (Art Surveillance).  Calendar There are no events this evening, but tomorrow night sees PKN Providence Vol. 42. Thursday will bring the following five events: PKN Guatelmala City Vol. 2, PKN Lille Vol. 2, PKN Knoxville Vol. 5, PKN Chillicothe Vol. 1, and PKN Vladimir Vol. 9. 


Adopting a Racing Dog, Moving to the Shakespeare Beat, and Pinteresting Finds

Presentations Another fantastic kids presentation from Derby (Vol. 5), this time with Freya talking about her dog Alfie, a retired racing greyhound. If this doesn't convince you that adopting a retired racing dog is a good idea, we don't know what will. Can you move to the Shakespeare beat? Ben Spiller will make sure that you do in his presentation (from PKN Derby Vol. 6), before introducing you to the Shakespeare workout. Some presentations see a person sharing their work, and some see the presenter sharing what inspires him or her. Here (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 3), Richard Britell does the latter, sharing finds from Pinterest. This presentation (in French, from PKN Lyon Vol. 4) is about Alles Gut, a graphic design studio founded by Antoine Eckart and Francis Josserand. The idea was born from the desire of putting together their skills and their vision of design combining esthetic and function. They act in the field of print (ID, posters, editing), web design, and illustration. And with these four presentations we hit a new milestone today, reaching 600 online presentations -- or make that two, since our city count has just hit 580. Events We announced it a couple of weeks ago, but here's a reminder that here in Tokyo, PechaKucha is teaming up with ArchiAid for a very special event next week (Thursday, November 22) at SuperDeluxe in Roppongi. This PechaKucha event will be jam-packed with an inspirational lineup of architects -- including SANAA and Atelier Bow-Wow -- who will present their ArchiAid-supported projects in Tohoku (northern Japan, the area most affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami), using the 20x20 format you know and love. You'll find more event details and the full lineup of presenters on our Facebook event page and Inspire Japan site. Participants will also contribute books to be auctioned during the break, to raise funds. You can also support ArchiAid initiatives through the PechaKucha website -- click on the big blue "A+" logo. Photos Tallinn had its Vol. 6 earlier this week, but here's a photo gallery [Flickr] from the city's Vol. 5, held back in September. You'll find the list of presenters on the official event page.  Calendar After a busy week, it's a relatively quiet weekend, with two events scheduled for tonight (Friday, November 16) -- PKN Aalen Vol. 12 and PKN Hamptons Vol. 2 -- and then PKN Johannesburg Vol. 8 happening on Saturday.


I'm Not Actually Speaking Tonight, I'm Rapping

In our "Presentation of the Day," Tokyo-based visual artist Rob Judges takes us on a tour of his work with a hip hop hippity hop style. Yes, the man can rap, and you'll have fun listening to him as he shares what he's been working on of late.


Rare Species

Glen Chilton is a biologist in search of rare and falsely-presumed-extinct wildlife species.  In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Townsville Vol. 2) Glenn speaks of his travels, conquests, and travails in seeking these rare members of the animal (and sometimes plant) kingdom. 


Electric Racing

In this edition of Presentation of the Day, Godert van Hardenbroek discusses (at PKN Shanghai Vol. 21) Dian Racing: a collaborative, Tongji University student-run group tasked with the challenge to build the future of electric racing vehicles. Godert explains some of the history behind alternative energy in cars, how he co-founded the Formula Zero racing class (for fuel cell vehicles), and how he's brought together student engineers and designers from all over to construct the ultimate zero-emission racer.

Raum für Talente - Osttirol

Space for talents - Osttirol     Ein Glücksgefühl durchströmt meinen Körper beim Lesen des neuen Osttirol Leitbildes 2025. Meine Töchter sind heute (2014) 7 und 10 Jahre alt. 2025 quasi volljährig. Wie schön ist die Vorstellung, wenn wir bis dahin mit 4 Begriffen gemeinsam weiterarbeiten....   Talent, Wertschätzung, Zusammenhalt und Individualität.   Allesamt im Vordenker Zukunftsbild Osttirol 2025 aufzufinden.   Ein kleiner Baustein zur "Talenteschmiede Osttirol" sind die  Pecha Kucha Nights LIENZ 2014/2015.   Diese Abende können einen wertschätzenden Umgang mit individuellen Talenten vor Ort unter Beweis stellen.     Ein Versuch ist es allemal wert ...   Der Zusammenhalt unter Frauen wurde im Vorfeld unter Beweis gestellt (Posterdesign, Organisation, Druck).   Sei Mutig, Frei und Wunderbar
