"The only way to shed light on ignorance and resentment is to talk about it."
In St. Joseph - Small Town, Big Heart, from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 134, Lana Rappette, Assistant and Communications Lead for the Whirlpool Creatives Association reveals that St Joseph, MI is far more than just a sleepy summer tourist destination on the shore of Lake Michigan. Sure, St Joseph has its sandy beaches and an agricultural industry fit for making apple pies, but it also has a thriving, respected and close knit arts community. One that is immune to city borders and has helped heal relationships and restore the beauty in the neighboring city of Benton Harbor. PechaKucha St Joseph was started just one year ago in early 2015. Now all people, everyday people, have a chance to share ideas and fun doing it! The city hopes to fuel a positive and creative culture through its PechaKucha platform.
