The Trail to Walter

BY MEL LANGTON
@ VOL 3 ON OCT 07, 2015

Lincoln Barons' Charter Trail was part of the 800th year Magna Carta Celebrations and artist Mel Langton takes us through a fun behind the scenes of her work on Sir Walter Style (aka William Malet a feudal baron from Somerset). 

All 25 barons lined the streets of Lincoln during the summer and were later auctioned raising almost £170,000 in one night. Lincolnites will miss them but the funds raised contributed to fight hunger and poverty in the UK. Well done barons!

PKN Lincoln in the News

Here's a nice video report on PechaKucha Night in Lincoln from NewsNetNebraska. PKN Lincoln Vol. 6 was held earlier this week, and the next edition, Vol. 7, is already set to happen in May.

Comparing the US to the UK and Projects for Alternative Living

For this presentation (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 1), let David Hyde take you on a tongue-in-cheek comparative tour of the US and the UK -- expect stereotypes galore, and a good laugh. Redesigna is a collaboration of different projects in Augsburg -- each of these projects focuses on alternative living. This presentation (in German, from PKN Augsburg Vol. 1) shows a variety of recycled and upcycled projects created by Doris Leitner.

PK Special: Chicago | UK

Two Fridays ago, from the heights of Olympia Center in Chicago, in the residence of the British Consul General, a very special PechaKucha eve was held. British creatives residing in the Windy City presented on topics aplenty: Tom Burtonwood and Mike Moceri let us peer into the world of 3D printing with a MakerBot presentation, Michael and Dianne Jackson discussed married life, Kenny G, and twins (we're sure there's a line to be drawn through those three topics), and Robert Chatterton Dickson chatted a ton about his life as a British diplomat. The home of Robert and Teresa Albor was opened to about 100 frequenters of PeckaKucha Night Chicago, and all entry funds went to Vanavevhu: a charity benefiting children in Zimbabwe.  As you can see, the downtown city-view was downright impressive, which may have you asking, "Can we get much higher?" Well yes, in fact, the highest PechaKucha soirée was for Inspire Japan -- held in Roppongi Hills Mori Tower's 52nd floor. Anyone up to challenge Tokyo's title? A full album of photos from this affair can be found on PKN Chicago's event page.

From Batman to Lincoln

"They both could be pessimistic, dark, morose, they went through tragedy early in their lives..."  In today's Presentation of the Day, "From Batman to Lincoln" from PKN Bowling Green Vol. 2, Christy Spurlock discusses the fangirl/fanboy phenomena, and goes into depth on her infatuation with Batman (she specifies the 1960s Adam West Batman as her entry-point) and Abraham Lincoln. She looks at what drew her to these sorts of figures throughout her life, and discusses some of the popular culture surrounding fanboyism/fangirlism found on the internet and in real-life.

Welcome to Pecha Kucha Lincoln

Meet Elika. Elika had a dream… After spending most of her childhood growing up in Honduras with her Japanese father and Honduran mother, Elika went to live in Tokyo to get to know her Japanese heritage. While she was there, she discovered this amazing new community had opened up to allow creative people to start sharing their ideas and work with audiences beyond their normal circles. She went to one. She was hooked; the Pecha Kucha seed was planted! It’s probably important to point out she also met her husband Joe there. This is a vital piece of information, not just because he’s her husband but also because he’s the reason she ended up in Lincoln. After being in Lincoln for almost a year, Elika had (naturally) made some friends. Meet Atma. Atma, AKA The Wisp, and Elika hit it off immediately. They became great friends and spent a lot of time drinking tea with each other.  One Monday (after a lot of tea) Elika excitedly ran an idea past Atma; she wanted to bring Pecha Kucha to Lincoln. Atma was thrilled by the idea and immediately started planning acrobatics and dancers floating down from the ceiling on beautiful white fabric…. Meet Sam. She said no. After much tea, sushi, yoga and chit chatting Lincoln Pecha Kucha was born. It wasn’t easy to pull it off. This was new to the city so there was no way of knowing of how many people would come or how well the evening would go, but with infectious enthusiasm and a small amount of pressure, the team managed to persuade 7 really interesting local people to share their stories.  It’s incredible what happens when people are asked to do something from the heart… they just say yes.  It’s really important to mention that this isn’t a charity even and no money exchanged hands. With no financial contributions or sponsors the team had to rely on the good will of friends, both new and old. The team added a new member; the youthful, tenacious and fantastically enthusiastic Jay, a student at a local school.  With youth firmly on his side, posters advertising the event found their way all over Lincoln. The posters themselves were stunningly designed by Jack, another great friend of the team.  2015 is a huge year for Lincoln with the castle re-opening, the Magna Carta celebrations, the National Cycle Championships and the 50th anniversary of the Red Arrows. Jack managed to capture all of this in a poster that has caught the attention of Pecha Kucha friends all over the world. It took some considerable effort and patience but the end result was well worth it! The first event was held on 31st May in the beautiful historical Brewhaus bar in Lincoln. Brewhaus itself is a stunning building in the city which for years lay empty.  It’s been thoughtfully restored to be one of the best bars in Lincoln with an ethos on showcasing all the great things that are happening in the city.  The staff were also incredible, managing a last minute room change.  However none of this can happen with a great, patient tech guy. Meet Joe (Elika’s husband) properly, a great tech guy.  Who knew a projector could be so hard to find! After much running around Lincoln, the ladies from another local project, Nerd Nite, the day and loaned a projector. There was light. There was sound.  There were speakers and their presentations. All the team needed was an audience…  The turnout far outweighed the teams expectations, filling the club room in the building, and the audience were completely immersed in the stories from the speakers. After John Knight kicked off the event with a wonderful presentation on Fashion Under Fire in the 1940’s, the speakers really got into the spirit of the event and delivered interesting, enlightening and engaging presentations on painting barons, composing music, stand-up comedy, herbalism and cycling. The evening finished with an incredible talk from David Bramston about his passion for turning industrial waste items from the recycling ‘department stores’ of China into lighting.   Once the event had finished, there was a real reluctance to leave the room as people mingled, got to know each other and chatted to the speakers.  The Pecha Kucha magic extend far beyond interesting talks from passionate individuals; people made new friends. Over the next year, more Pechakucha events will be happening in Lincoln so subscribe, follow, chit chat and join in.  The team has some BIG plans for the year so whether you want to become a sponsor, a speaker, a host or in the audience, come and be a part of celebrating all the great stories and people living in Lincoln today.
