Life Can Get Hairy

@ VOL 27 ON SEP 14, 2016

Some times life can get a little hairy. Kelly O'Leary knows this the best and took experience from Clueless, giving a variety of rad make-overs in an alternative matter.  When highschool didn't work out, hair school was the place to be with all the blonde highlights the world could tolerate.  

From embarassing hair accidents to the joy of her first child.  O'Leary has seen it all and took it with grain of salt and learned from all of it.  "It stays with you forever, and you learn from it".  Now addicted to working and pinterest (who isn't), she found her calling in vintage hair and pinup beauties.

Silence Can Be Visual

@ VOL 33 ON FEB 22, 2018

In a noisy world full of force fed stimulus and information, copious distractions that come at us on a daily basis fromr oad signs, radio, television, drama, personal relationships we are swimming neck deepin information. Not only that but we’re choosing to find ways to cram it in faster and more efficiently but multitasking our evenings away watching TV and scanning Twitter.

Luke Thiessen takes the audience through a period in his life where the noise was at an all time high and then came to a skittering halt, and amidst the silence that followed he found his creative self once more and the revelation that silence can be a visual thing.

And this time, at tea time. A very, very high tea: come join us at the 23th floor of Tasman Tower. "But, that building's not even finished yet!" you say? You are right. No walls. Great heights. A spectaculair view. And great, great presenters. If you're not afraid of heights (and please, wear something sensible) you are very welcome for a cup of tea and some inspiration.

I'll invite you to visit the "PechaKucha for Haiti" section of the site for more details -- yes, we are still updating that page with the latest news, including adding links to Haiti-related presentations that have gone online -- but we're very happy to announce that the funds raised so far have paid for a new school! Today - 20 days later - it gives us great pride in announcing that the PechaKucha global network of cities, organizers, presenters and fans has raised over $60,000 which allows Architecture For Humanity to build the first PechaKucha School in Haiti.

PechaKucha x School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Later this month (October 23), PechaKucha Night in Chicago is teaming up with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for a special PechaKucha event. Here's more from PKN Chicago organizer Peter Exley: Since PK began in Chicago, one of the most fertile sources of presenters and supporters seems to have been the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recognizing this, PKN Chicago is organizing a special PK event to coincide with this year's parents weekend. So Moms, Mums, and Dads from around the world converging on Chicago with their offspring attending SAIC will discover PK, and be on the lookout for it back home in their cities. And a new crop of young creatives will get their first taste of PK. We're very excited to be doing this with the [Art Insti] "tute." The poster for the event was designed by Eric Baskauskas.

Thank you everyone who supported PechaKucha for Haiti and a massive thank you to Cameron Sinclair and his team for making the school a reality.

"Research has illustrated that 90% of us will do almost all of the drawings we will make in our lifetime before the age of 10. That’s the threshold we pass when someone tells us that we aren't good at art or math or science.” In The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag] from PechaKucha Night Batavia’s first volume, Speaker Peter Exley discusses the importance of thoughtful and deliberate sketches. We all spent time in our youth expressing ourselves through drawing. At some point, many of us turned our attentions to things less creative. Peter did not. Here’s why.
