PechaKucha Presentation

Emma Exley traces the history of Africa's last colony, the Western Sahara, located on the continent's northern coast. Through images of traditional Sahrawi architecture and culture, we learn about the challenges of desert living, and how something as small as a cup of tea has massive significance in the every day life of the Sahrawi people. 

Emma Exley is a creative designer, former art educator, and diving enthusiast. After first discovering PechaKucha Night in Chicago in 2007, it was only a matter of time before she founded the Brooklyn chapter in 2014.

Let's Fall In Love With Tea

BY RATNA SOMANTRI
@ VOL 18 ON JUN 24, 2014

Ratna Somantri's first encounter with tea was from her mother, who always serve tea to the family. During her time at Le Cordon Bleu, Sydney, she continues to learn about tea from all over the world. She established Tea Lovers Community with some other fellow tea lovers in Indonesia. Currently, she is also the Chairman of the Tea Board of Promotion of Indonesia for 2014-2017. Ratna often invited as a speaker in various tea-related events and enjoyed teaching classes through tea at Tea Institute. In her presentations, Ratna shared her knowledge about tea history in the world and in Indonesia in particular. Indonesia is one of the largest tea producing country, but the awareness for the tea culture itself is still low. Through her community, Ratna believes that Indonesian teas should be more appreciated in our own country. Her dream is that our best teas should be available and enjoyed in every Indonesian home and that their growing popularity will prosper local tea producers.
