How I Understand the Work I Do (and Myself) Better Because of My Little Sister

BY JESSICA CALDAS
@ VOL 28 ON FEB 21, 2016

"My sister reminds me every day why I do the work that I do, why these open, hard conversations are important, how we learn from them and how we help ourselves and others by having them"

In How I Understand the Work I Do (and Myself) Better Because of My Little Sister from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Vol. 28Jessica Caldas shares about the impact her little sister has on her and her art. Caldas is an aritist based in Atlanta and one whose work stems from challenging subject matter such as domestic abuse and sexual violence. Over the last year, Jessica's younger sister Shoshana has increasingly become an influence in Jessica's work through her openess, honesty, and challenging nautre. Jessica stood before strangers, some friends, and her sister to tell everyone of the special bond these two have and what the bond has meant for Jessica's art.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday July 19th, 2016.

The invisible work against terrorism

BY MARTIN LARCHER
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

Terrorists are invisible. It is impossible to find a terrorist in a crowded place full of people. Terrorism is based on fear. This fear might prevent people from doing things that they would normally do, going to places they used to visit, or just enjoying life. We might feel powerless with the knowledge that there is not much we can do about this threat. But in reality, a lot is being done. In this presentation, JRC researcher Martin Larcher talks about the invisible work to protect people from terrorism
