When Food Brings Cultures Together

BY SONIA KAR
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

"People were interested not about only the food that it was made, but also the backgroud from where did it come from."

In "When Food Brings Cultures Together" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol.31Sonia Kar is an independent entrepreneur who tells us the idea about her online platform, where different cultures meet through their menus. We human beings are very different, each and every one of us have some principles and values in us which have been influenced by our family, culture, upbringing and country. We all are effectively ambassadors or representatives of our families, cultural backgrounds and countries. But how often do we share our culture or are aware about the culture of others and can this be done through our food?

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, November 1st, 2016.

Impressions from Germany and Russia

BY GERHARD MUTZ
@ VOL 5 ON MAR 02, 2017

Gerhard Mutz's presentation is a delight for the eyes! It is a succession of amazing pictures taken in Germany and Russia while Gerhard was working for the German Embassy in Moscow. The photographs were presented in Germany and Russia as a photo exhibition entitled “Impressions from Germany and Russia”. It is said that trough his pictures, we can feel the duality of the two world, reflecting the tension of Russia when it declared the Crimea peninsula belonging to their territory.  Perhaps what you will mostly see is the beauty of the pictures, their composition, light, subject, angle… and how Gerhard describes them with such passion!
