"You can make just about anything into booze, right? Dandelion flowers, rotten potatoes, roadkill, ...just about anything!"
Kathleen thought she won the lottery when she and her new family moved into their new home and discovered a mature pear tree growing in the front yard…until they tried to eat one. The pears were either rock hard or complete mush, with no happy medium. She tried every which way to make something edible out of the fruit, but nothing turned out quite right. Kathleen finalized realized that the solution to her problem was not edible, but drinkable! Join maker and crafter extraordinaire Kathleen Angelski are she guides us through the step-by-step journey of making pear wine.

Hot on the heels of Providence's latest PechaKucha Night -- this week's Vol. 12 -- let's give a listen to a presentation from last month's Vol. 11 in the form of Melissa Withers' "A New Paradigm for Civic Engagement (Or, How I Got My Groove Back)." Melissa gives us a great introduction, well OK a pitch, for Independent Diplomat -- a newly formed organization that gives voices to countries that can't be heard.

Drink Wine, Eat Chocolate
"Getting more pleasure, and enjoying [life] more, together." Good motto. Contemporary Swedish glass designer Åsa Jungnelius is interested in what is considered genuine or fake, and how value is created around an object. In "Drink Wine, Eat Chocolate" from a special Swedish Style x PechaKucha edition of PKN Tokyo (Vol. 66), we see that Åsa often uses stereotypes as a language that informs her design theory, and challenges the conventional meaning of these formulae.
Urban Innovation Winners
It's been a month since the first PechaKucha Urban Innovation Month came to a close. Dozens of projects were submitted from all over the world, from Buenos Aires to Vienna, from Lisbon to Vancouver. Each project is unique, but they all have one thread in common: they're all insanely passionate people looking to make life in the city better for the rest of us. The New Cities Foundation went through the over 30 submissions and chose two among them to be flown out to Dallas, Texas this June 17-19 to speak at the WhatWorks workshop at New Cities Summit 2014. To find out who won, have a look to our latest global newsletter in which we announce the winners.
Gardens of Winter
“What caught my eye was the border between the man made landscape, and the natural landscape.” Printmaking MFA graduate Hannah Skoonberg speaks on her art work, which explores the concepts of memory and object.

Introduction of Jackson Wells
Before the sun sets, we have a pleasure to introduce you one more person who loves snow: Jackson Wells. Jackson is the youngest from the Wells brothers. He added a new trick, a switch quad 1620, into the trick lexicon this winter. In the age 18, he is the first on the world to do the quad cork - four spins - on skis. Skiing since the age of three, Jackson oozes pure enjoyment on snow and is easy to spot from the huge grin on his face. Jackson represented NZ in freeski at the 2014 and 2015 FIS Junior World Champs and at the 2016 Youth Olympic Winter Games. His disciplines are Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Big Air. Picture by Hannah Peters.
