The Infamous Gilbert Imlay

@ VOL 9 ON SEP 18, 2012

Abbey Smith tells us the dramatic and shocking story of a relatively unknown individual named Gilbert Imlay. His transgressions made a significant impact on the world. From using a real estate position to swindle people out of money, to his abandonment of his lover Mary Wollstonecraft, to plagiarism, his acts could be said to have delayed the progress of Women's rights by over 40 years.

Disabling Labelling

@ VOL 3 ON SEP 22, 2015

"By and large, most people thought it was time for change. And I was going to be part of that change."

In "Disabling Labelling" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3, writer, mentor, and idealist Ann Hawkins passionately talks about equal opportunity and the modern world lessons that she insists we must learn that race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, and all the various labels that we are so accustomed to assigning each other, have very little to do with the kind of people we actually are or how effective we can be in the world. "It's time to tidy up our language" she adds referring to limitations labels give us, concluding "we owe it to the next generation."

Heroes and Heroines

@ VOL 3 ON SEP 22, 2015

"Carrie Fisher was 18 when she starred in Star Wars. She owns that film. She commands all the other characters. [She's] a female character that doesn't have to become masculine to be in charge"

In Heroes and Heroines from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3 Jon Torrens passionately shares about the heroes and heroines from the big screen (and some from the small screen) that have inspired him over the years, highlighting their strengths but not over looking their flaws. The last hero he features is his greatest, adding a sweet twist to a solid line-up of true greats.

@ VOL 1 ON JAN 27, 2018

In her presentation, Seyhr Qayum shares her current studio practice and the concepts that inform her art-making decisions. 

Conceptually, Seyhr's art is largely about cross-cultural exchange, and her perception of the differences between liberal and conservative societies. She combines representational portraiture and figurative illustrations, with elements of abstraction. 

The idea of women empowerment is a focus in Seyhr's artworks. She has seen both the liberal and conservative side of life, and therefore has a fair idea of what it means to be a woman in both these worlds. All her work portrays Pakistani women as strong, empowered members of the society rather than stale and stereotypical illustrations. Her life-sized paintings of empowered female figures, such as ‘Here’s Looking at You, Kid,’ where a woman boldly stares back at you, encapsulate the idea of showing Pakistani women as strong and capable rather than submissive or troubled beings.

@ VOL 12 ON MAR 11, 2019

Lilly Cooper speaks passionately about women and their body image: the constant pressures that women face to look pretty and have an ideal body shape. She encourages women to resist mass media pressures to conform. 

"What can all of us do to support each other journey on the road to self love? I feel progress is happening and can definitely continue to happen, we just got to stick together and keep shouting that we're beautiful. Is there hope? I think there is! "

Feminism and Equity! What are the real issues?

@ VOL 40 ON MAY 10, 2019

Jennifer Azih addresses general misconceptions about feminism, female genital mutilation, gender-based violence, rape, child marriage, and girl child deprivation of education.

Many people are afraid to be called feminists or even associated with it. This is because the topic has been politicized and many people do not even understand its true meaning.

As a woman, Jennifer would like to educate people on the real issues of feminism that are constantly being neglected.

She thinks that it is important to change people’s perspective and stimulate real support to the feminist movement.

The Long Black Wig Project

“Recall the idiom Everything But the Kitchen Sink…This is NOT that space.” In The Long Black Wig Project from PechaKucha Night Bryan’s 5th Volume Speaker Becky Eddy Phillips rhythmically details a her multimedia artistic piece. The Long Black Wig Project enters contemporary plots in art, science, domesticity, mothering, and feminism. Using art like a verb, it wavers in leaps and falls between the intellectual and domestic realms. At the same time, the work is introspective, balancing the overlapping (though historically antithetical) realms of mother and artist: how to stay connected to art depends on the artists connectivity to her children. An ambitious multi-media exhibit, it is contained within A Vacuous Space. A multitude of video vignettes are projected within it’s relative space. With titles such as Miss Sara Tonin’s Fancy and My Feminism Hurts My Marriage, the imagery is strangely eerie with a feminine edge as if there were an invisible link to the past lives of women associated with Surrealism. A long wig is seen throughout the work and acts as a connective fiber.

Porn Nails

”I created Porn Nails as an interactive installation and performance using miami kitsch aesthetics and the flamboyance of the Miami chonga.” In Porn Nails from PechaKucha Night Miami’s 31st volume, speaker Rosemarie Romero presents a project near and dear to her heart.

Announcing Our Presenters for Volume 10 – Wednesday, October 2, 2019

We are excited to announce our next round of speakers for PechaKucha Night #ldnont happening on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019: Louis Engel Presentation Title: Curious? Presentation Outline: After a 12-year period under pursuit of Permanent Residency in Canada, Louis will share the ups and downs, the lessons learned, and the memories made from that experience. Jaclyn Siegel Presentation Title: Feminism with Benefits: The Personal and Interpersonal Benefits of Feminist Attitudes and Identity Presentation Outline: Broadly speaking, a feminist is someone who supports gender equality in the social, political, and economic domains. The feminist movement has made important strides in procuring and safeguarding the rights of women and gender diverse people, but supporting feminism also has psychological and psychosocial benefits. Research has linked feminist attitudes and identity to a variety of positive mental health and behavioral outcomes, ranging from less disordered eating to safer sex practices. This presentation will cover existing research on this topic, including theories as to why this link exists. Mercedes Caxaj Presentation Title: Taking A Moment in Seoul Presentation Outline: Mercedes will be sharing an inspiring moment she had when traveling in Seoul, Korea and how at the forefront of this experience included her values were curiosity, open-mindedness, and understanding. And having lived those core values this experience would not have manifested. Carolyn Martyn Presentation Title: Bring It: Inspiring others to love themselves. Presentation Outline: This presentation will detail how and why Bring It was created, and lessons learned along the way.   Laura Johnson Presentation Title: From Darth Vader to Luke Skywalker: A Journey Into the Light Side of Personality Presentation Outline: The media bombards us with stories of violence and corruption, which paints a bleak picture of human nature as self-centered. Similarly, research in psychology has traditionally focused on the “dark side” of personality. However, like the Force, there is also a “light side” to human nature. From everyday saints to kidney donors, who give to complete strangers, people regularly do good things for others. Using psychological research and theory, this presentation will discuss the “light side” of personality, the importance of gratitude, and how generosity and kindness to others can enhance our well-being.   Arielle Kayabaga Presentation Title: Ubuntu: The Universal Bond Presentation Outline: Where I’m from, we talk about Ubuntu. Ubuntu essentially means having humanity in you. Compassion and love for others. In Ubuntu, we take care of one another. This is where my passion to affect meaning and change comes from and why I got involved in politics.  REGISTER HERE TO ATTEND And a big thanks and SHOUT OUT to our amazing 2019 sponsors this year: City Match  rTraction  BringIt. And HIGH-FIVES all around for our partners as well: LAV Solutions MC Spirit Studios AtPrint    You have all helped make these three events possible this year and we truly appreciate it. Janic
