PechaKucha Night Genève est un évènement festif pendant lequel genevois et internationaux partagent leurs histoires de vies, idées, projets, pensées, passions - à peu près n'importe quoi - dans le format PechaKucha 20x20. Les courts récits seront suivis d’un apéro festif en musique dans les locaux du nouveau Foound. 

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where local and international people get together and share their ideas, works and thoughts — just about anything — in the “PechaKucha” format: 20 images in 20 seconds each. Expect an interesting evening with stories about initiatives, hidden secrets and exciting cultural happenings from Geneva’s melting pot. The series of short presentations will be followed by a party with food & cash bar.

Mobile Storytelling

BY ULRICH FISCHER
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 17, 2019

Grâce à nos smartphones, nous sommes connectés partout, tout le temps. Mais avons-nous accès aux histoires qui font vivre les lieux que nous fréquentons ? Comment se laisser inspirer par les archives, comment interagir avec les histoires qui nous touchent ? Comment partager des récits en mobilité ? Cette présentation se base sur l’application traverse pour apporter quelques réponses à ces questions..

Les merveilleuses machines de Jaques Besso

BY LAURENCE-ISALINE STAHL-GRETSCH
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 17, 2019

Un ingénieur genevois du 16e siècle invente de merveilleuses machines et espère vendre son projet au roi de France. Il fait réaliser de magnifiques planches qui sont la base de cet accrochage. On y découvre d’étonnants systèmes pour tirer des bateaux de l’eau, transporter des voyageurs confortablement, dompter le vent et même … ratisser large.

Une jolie façon de mettre en lumière un étonnant best-seller de 1578 dont un exemplaire est conservé à la Bibliothèque du Musée d’histoire des sciences et de faire un lien avec son exposition « Roulez les mécaniques, la loi du moindre effort.

Building friendships around a great meal

BY MR. JAUMESSE
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 17, 2019

«What are the similarities between you and me? » This question is behind the concept of Food N'Friends. The world is in need of quality and positive social interactions, greater cultural awareness, and appreciation of diversity to combat increasing isolation and loneliness.

Based on experiences in different countries and conversations with people from every background, Food N’ Friends event model was shaped and now serves as a social catalyst to enable new connections and friendships, and create a bridge between locals, expats and travelers.
The simple motto is « Let’s make friends around a delicious meal ».
