VOL 22

March 04, 2014
@ The Kelvin Club

Members' Only!
Gentlemen’s clubs are mysterious and secret places. For Pecha Kucha vol#22 we explore the Kelvin Club, a Melbourne institution of nearly 150 years.

Club-sandwich. Boy’s Club. Footy club. Jack of Clubs. In Da Club. Golf club. Nightclub. Book Club. Network.

Which club did you always want to be part of? How did you break in? What made you leave, resist or relent? How can we work together and join forces? What can our collective action achieve?

Person on Purpose

@ VOL 22 ON MAR 04, 2014

Cece Ojany poses the question we always ask but never seem to find an answer to: What is our purpose? She explains how successful we can be by choosing to live a life true to ourselves rather than the life others expect of us. We must work not from motivation, which is finite, but from inspiration, which is always present.
