Art to Industry: Stumbling into the Business World and Sticking the Landing
BY ALISA TONINATO
@ VOL 18
ON AUG 24, 2016
When you're an artist, one of the biggest challenges when starting out is navigating the business of selling your art. Eventually a paradigm shift happens and the effort becomes making an art out of working your business. Sculptor and entrepreneur Alisa Toninato has found some reconciliation with the often stressful transition of being creative and makeing a living from her craft. The key to a successful career in the arts might have less to do with writing a buisness plan, and more about tenaciously defining your passion. Alisa will bring us through her story as an artist running a production company, and how she ended up in the cookware industry.
From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines

@ VOL 31
ON SEP 07, 2016
"How many gems of scientific discovery are out there, published in articles, that we don’t know about?"
One of the goals of scientific research should be the improvement of the human reality. But have we created a world in which the journey from discovery to society is so exhausting that it deters academics from embarking on it? And if so, can we do something about it?
In "From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, Bart Knols idiscusses how scientists need to better communicate with those who are outside their field in order to contribute to society's development.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, October 10th, 2016.

Алла Кошляк. Теле- та радіоведуча, 10 років у журналістиці.
Розповідати історії про українських підприємців — це круто.
Про проект «Бізнес-план», який я з командою знімаю для «Настоящее время» і Hromadske.ua, а також радіошоу «Власники» на aristocrats.fm, завдяки якому він став можливий. Про те, як важливо не забувати про свою ідею, навіть якщо її десять разів відхилили. Про те, як навчаєшся керувати колективом, знаходити компроміси, розбиратися в технічних деталях, яких ніколи не знав. І що найважливіше — про те, скільки навколо крутих людей роблять круті речі. І чому я вважаю таким важливим розповідати про це світу.
