Wander Often, Wonder Always


Life is filled with new beginnings, filled with uncertainty. That’s why you need to be curious, and why you need to wonder and wander. Use curiosity to taste new experience, meet different people, and use it to find out what you are passionate about. It’s never too late to experiment and don’t let the fear of unknown stop you from it.

Curiosity without Limits: Play, Art and a T. rex Named Sue

@ VOL 2 ON FEB 29, 2016

"The choice isn't about science and are, it's about living and not living."

In "Curiosity without Limits: Play, Art and a T. rex Named Sue" from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 2, Álvaro Amat works at the Field Museum of Natural History, where Sue, the world-famous Tyrannosaurus rex, is the star of a collection of some 30 million objects. His experience collaborating with the Field Museum’s scientists in the creation of exhibitions that inspire curiosity led him to combine art and science in spontaneous explorations and experiments with his son, Nicolas. As an artist, educator, and parent, Álvaro attempts to create an in-between space of curiosity and wonder to break the barriers between reason and imagination for the integral formation of a more complete, creative, and happy individual.

Fight or Flight: A Pilgrimage of Self Discovery

@ VOL 37 ON FEB 20, 2019

After a personally tough year, Danelle Cloutier decided to realize a recurring dream she's been having of being in a country where everything is completely foreign to her. Danelle's trip to Asia was an experience that was as enlightening as it was cathartic as it helped her realize what it means to be living with anxiety on a daily basis. Here in this 20x20 talk, she briefly shares her experience travelling in Asia and explains how she deals with the struggles of her life-long anxiety.

Danelle's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 37, on February 20 2019, at the Park Theatre.
