@ VOL 26
ON SEP 27, 2013
Alexander Josephson of PARTISANS speaks on the importance of liberty in an age wherein "Celebrity" (meaning an individual's imprisonment to the idea of fame alone) is such a strong force in our society, for good or bad. He has coined the word "Celiberty" as a concept that attempts to strike a healthy balance between hollow self-promotion and a legitimate creative struggle to do politically relevant work at its highest calibre.

From Tyranny to Liberty... A Personal Story
BY BILL SUHAYDA
@ VOL 6
ON FEB 16, 2017
In an all-too-rate look at life behind the Iron Curtain, Bill Suhayda explores the conditions that caused the Hungarian people to revolt against both Soviet occupation and the tyranny of communism in the country of his birth. In 1956, some 200,000 people fled Communist Hungary; Bill’s family was among those people risking their lives to escape. Bill dedicated his presentation to those people in Hungary, Austria, and the United States who helped his family escape from tyranny, and those Americans who helped his family assimilate into American culture.

PKN The Hague Vol. 3
PechaKucha Night in The Hague Vol. 3 was held earlier this month, and here's a glowing report from organizer Bram van Hasselt. You'll also find more photos from the event in this Flickr photoset. On Wednesday March 10th, something special happened in Pip. To us as an organization this would have to be the best PechaKucha Night in The Hague yet! Over 100 people showed up to get inspired and be entertained, to laugh and to meet new people. Now, we look back at the last edition with you to enjoy it for one last time and get ideas for the next PKDH, which will take place sometime in June. This time, more than during the previous editions, speakers took the liberty to find their own creative way of using the 20×20 format. We saw combinations of pictures, videos and sound, but also performances in fragments of 20 seconds. Some speakers chose to not talk, others seemed to have everything planned out. Variation is what makes a PechaKucha Night so unique. Not only in content, but also in locations, variety was the key word of the night; we went to Gambia, Nigeria, Birma, The Kyrgyz Republic, Sankt Moritz or stayed in the city centre of The Hague. As you may have noticed, we filmed everything, which is now availabe through Pip TV: part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4. We also uploaded pictures to our Flickr group, feel free to spread and share! Credits for the pictures go to Anna Czyzewska. Of course, we have some people to thank, starting with the speakers, in order of appearance: Joost Haas Bas Ackermann Christian Kryl Saskia Mees Shireen van Dorp Ruben Steeman Sieko Kloosterhuis Ibrahim Ineke Maurice Ajanaku Martijn Kramp Peter de Ruiter Sietze Kalkwijk Of course, much love to Pip who once again opened up their doors for all of us. Much thanks to Jorick.tv for helping us out with the technical part and the stream, brought to you by Zapstream. And a very special thanks to Tanja Busking and Dayna Casey, for the very slick design of the posters and flyers! And last, but not least, thank you! Without your enthusiasm, support and you being there, PechaKucha Night in The Hague would not be here. We will keep you posted when we have the next date, and we hope to see you there. To conclude, a drawing Ruben Steeman made of PechaKucha Night in The Hague Vol. 3.

Beautiful photos and amazing process was described and the evening truly finished in the PechaKucha spirit. Efterklangs trailer put a dot on it Thank you for a wonderful evening - see you at Huset on april 10. :-) Annette

Understanding Architectural Needs in Liberia
“To really understand local needs, we didn’t come with answers but rather questions.” Architect Jack DeBartolo and his father have been taking ordinary projects and turning them into extraordinary solutions. Their work has taken them all over the country, but also to the developing world. In "Understanding Architectural Needs in Liberia" from PKN Phoenix Vol. 1, we see that his efforts working in Liberian Africa with architectural students opened his eyes to a very different set of standards of construction and culture.
