VOL 38

July 20, 2019
@ Shop Front Theatre

In times where the news is dominated by human disconnections, we get together for a Pecha Kucha Night exploring and celebrating what human beings, as a species, can achieve when we join together.

We're inviting speakers to use this quote from Helen Keller as a starting point: "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much".


Presentations include:

In Keeping Busy, comms specialist Casey Leaver tells the story of what she learnt while she was between roles and volunteering at Coventry Foodbank last winter - an insight into how foodbank works and how to be a good ally.

In Sherbourne Fields Challenges, Charlie and Jake talk about their experience of the Sherbourne Challenges and how, with the support and help of friends, family & staff, Jake has completed 7 amazing challenges that he would never otherwise have done.

In 2004 a Tsunami in the Indian Ocean devastated the coastal areas of 14 countries including Sri Lanka. In Being part of a Global Village Team Jen Cooke describes how she volunteered to be part of a global village team led by Habitat for Humanity to help rebuild a home but ended up building a brand new self.

Gareth Withers - The Choir - the proven antidote to loneliness.

Bengy Jake Speer - Singular Goals.

In A Growing Concern, Lisa explores the power of growing food, both as an individual & as part of a community. She hopes to challenge the theme that "alone we can do so little", instead arguing that "no one is too small to make a difference".

Edward Spence on How does this apply to science?


This Pecha Kucha Night is brought to you in association with Grapevine, an organisation working to combat isolation in Coventry.
