Cambodia and Montana are about as different as two cultures can be, but Sunflower Phon recounts the wild and rocky road she took to become an entrepreneur in her new land; Seth Ward tells the little-known story of how Montana got its unusual shape; and Kayte Kaminiski fills us in on an ambitious project to spread compassion throughout schools in the Gallatin Valley
The presentations highlight the next PechaKucha Night at the Ellen Theatre, Tuesday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 24. Both nights start at 6:40 p.m
Other presenters include Lisa Lord on how she battled smoke, vandals and heat to create and install a commissioned 25-foot mosaic ode to water at the University of Montana; Sky Wernik, who urges us to stop moralizing about food and free ourselves from misguided ideas about food and wellness; David King on the many pleasures of trekking 500 miles across northern Spain on the Camino de Santiago; and Stacey Tompkins and Anna Ourusoff on learning to overcome fixed behaviors by seeing them clearly.
Also presenting both nights are; Gennifre Hartmann on her life as an “edu-preneur” that has brought her to her latest effort—reinventing the one-room schoolhouse; Erin Graf on the growing movement to bring an art museum to Bozeman; Katie McLain on making sense out of our country’s drug policies over nearly 250 years; and Lori Byron on why encouraging “divestment” is a worthy way to sway corporations to take action on climate change.
Actor, dancer, teacher Heidi Krutchkoff will emcee the April event, which is sponsored by The Compassion Project.
PechaKucha (peh-chak-cha) offers anyone with a passion or a vision--designers, artists, inventors, architects, adventurers, entrepreneurs—an opportunity to share their ideas with the community during a fast-paced, friendly social get-together. There's just one catch—presenters have only 20 slides x 20 seconds each, a total of 6 minutes, 40 seconds!
