Quilting and I

PRESENTED ON SEP 24, 2016
IN BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN @ VOL 8

“There is a human cost to what we wear."

In "Quilting and I" from PechaKucha Night Bandar Seri Begawan Vol. 8, Nur Ahmad urges us to reconnect to the forgotten creative skills of sewing through quilting (it's just squares and straight lines - a good place to start!).  She hopes that will eventually lead us to the merrier path of knowing what we wear, understanding the real cost of our fashion choices and hurry us along to finding alternative sustainable textiles.

Why I Hate My Old Photos

BY JAY JOHAR
@ VOL 8 ON SEP 24, 2016

Get a friend who's as mad as you are about shooting photos, start with what (camera) you have and take pictures any time of the day, and you'll soon start hating your old photos, too.  Which is a good sign.  Two-time PKN presenter Jay Johar tells you why.

Never Solo

BY LIYANA SIDEK
@ VOL 8 ON SEP 24, 2016

Liyana was not active as a child, but today considers herself an athlete, born the moment the community of crossfitters, amidst claps and cheers, told her to 'get back up and finish what she started'.  She overcame the crushing weight of the barbell and the mentality that held her back thanks to the very underestimated thing we call support.
