Art of the Pencils

BY CAROLINE WEAVER
@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

“Pencil is a small thing that can make a big difference in the lives of people who use them.”

In "Art of the Pencil" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16 , Caroline Weaver, amateur pencil collector but lifelong pencil lover, founded CW Pencil Enterprise in November 2014. With her pencil experts, Caroline digs up the stories and origins of these objects and make them accessible to those who appreciate them for their functionality, beauty and history. As simple as it may be, the pencil is something which despite advances in technology will never become obsolete.

From MechaKucha to PechaKucha!

  "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 Vol. 126 to deliver this compelling presentation, "From MechaKucha to 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!
