@ VOL 19 ON MAR 27, 2019

At the 17th instalment of PechaKucha London at the amazing design studio HASSELL, Jeremy used his 6 minutes and 40 seconds to great effect by sharing with the crowd the story behind his "unique" and "useless" objects produced by manufacturers around the world, under instruction from Jeremy to insert errors into the designs.

This lucky PechaKucha audience was in stitches of laughter from start to finish!

@ VOL 19 ON MAR 27, 2019

At the 17th instalment of London PechaKucha at the lovely HASSELL design studio, Tayo used her time up front to share with the audience a heartfelt tale of her approach to design. Design should be about delivering solutions with humans at the heart.

Photography as image and process

@ VOL 19 ON MAR 27, 2019

At the 17th instalment of PechaKucha London, Adam told us all a standout story showcasing his amazing images of an untrained architect's (i.e. a normal person) unique approach to architecture.

PechaKucha at We Work on 15 May

Hi there!
We are super excited to announce the next PechaKucha Night on 15 May 2019.
We have an awesome line up of speakers coming to speak about "anything and everything!" - the breadth of topics we know you PechaKucha lovers are dead into!
This time we are hosting the event at We Work Fox Court - chuck this postcode into CityMapper and you will see it is a great central location WC1X 8HN. As always beer will be flowing (FREE as the flow will be coming straight from the lovely We Work hosts!).
This time around we have the following speakers lined up (more to come!)
Nathan Ardaiz / Nathan runs Almost Any How (almostanyhow.com) / Nathan facilitates teams to reflect and feedback more regularly, communicate more empathically and design more collaboratively. Nathan believes that design and the things people are manifesting in the world cannot be distinct from (human) nature and the complexities of our emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual worlds. @almostanyhow_ / nathan@almostanyhow.com
Anya Marco Harris / Anya Marco Harris is the UK coffee queen helping organise the much loved London Coffee Festival / She is also a burlesque dancer and felt flower designer. She recently completed her MA in cultural cosmology specialising in archeoastronomy and discovered how the Neolithic chose to place the stones in Avebury Stone Circle. She’s a blogger (who isn’t) and is going through the menopause (possibly dangerous).

Lucy Pickford / Co-Director at OLGA Agency / As a new director at OLGA Agency, a Hackney-based, boutique agency, Lucy’s keen to shout about design to anyone who’ll listen. Her journey has taken her via Landscape Architecture, Ops Management in the cutting edge tech world and some hitchhiking and working in Japan all with an Art History MA thrown in. While it’s not what you’d call a standard route, it’s left her with a swiss army knife of skills and a thorough understanding of the importance of design in every aspect of life / https://www.olgaagency.com/
Louise Holstein / Founder Mike's Table, Directer Uncharted Wines / Louise founded non-profit CIC (Community Interest Company) Mike's Table in 2015 and her positive experience of the social enterprise community inspired her to bring some of these principles into her commercial company Uncharted Wines. She'll talk about her businesses are about much more than making a profit. / https://www.mikes-table.org/ / https://www.unchartedwines.com/
Nikolay Piriankov / Chief Executive Officer at Taylor and Hart / Nik is passionate about entrepreneurship, custom-design and space travel. He is going to be talking about the key to developing and great company culture / https://taylorandhart.com
