Hand Written Letters
“I use handwritten letters to listen and encourage people…”
In "Hand Written Letters", from PechaKucha Night Ho Chi Minh City Vol.9, Doan Linh started "Letter to Angel", a non-profit organisation committed to bringing the lost art of handwritten letters back to people in Vietnam and around the world. In this presentation, she shares with us her vision behind L2A and what she hopes to achieve through it. It would be unfair to mention that she’s only 20 years old because her thoughts are much bigger the tiny number! Grab some paper and a pen, you might want to hand write your loved ones a letter right after listening to her talk.

Letters from Poland
From the Polish city of Koszalin, we heard tell of some changes in the wind. It began with a correspondence saying Gall Podlaszewski (PKN Koszalin founding organizer) would be taking himself and his new family back to Weimar, Germany -- upward and onward to new things. Gall went into detail, in this very heartfelt post, on the past, present, and future of PKN Koszalin (Weronika Teplicka will take the helm as PKN city organizer). We couldn't help but be moved by this tale from another continent. Best of luck to Gall and those of Koszalin!

"I wasn't worrying about money anymore ... by keeping money out of the social relationships, I also engaged entirely different with the people around me. It was just a much more natural way of being and it released a lot of freedom which was translated into creative expression."In Hand-Lettered Signboards from PechaKucha Night Leiden Vol 15, Lilian Leahy shares quitting her job to trade it for a backpack, sketchbook, pencils, paint and brushes. She travelled for more than a year through South East Asia and India. In more than 100 illustrations she documented her experiences. She also hand-lettered signboards for guesthouses resorts and restaurants in exchange for food and accommodation and that is how she was able to afford a long time of traveling. www.lilianleahy.com
