In 'Welcome' a talk given by Simona Pop at PechaKucha London Vol 12, Simona definitely pops!

Simona takes us on a weird and wacky tour through all things that represent 'Welcome' to her - such as the PINEAPPLE!! - Any guest who was invited to a party where a whole pineapple was displayed, knew that no expense was spared in guaranteeing the guests' enjoyment. It was this that made the crowned fruit the high symbol of social events and became the meaning of welcome, friendship, and hospitality.

Envision. Inspire. Improve. Welcome to The East Tennessee Community Design Center

@ VOL 28 ON AUG 16, 2018

Non-profits are not typically thought of as resources for architecture, design, and
planning services. Dustin Durham is here to change that mentality. He works for The East Tennessee Community Design Center, a local non-profit that has been around since 1970 with the sole purpose of making East Tennessee a better place through design. He runs through who they are, how they operate, and shows examples of a few of the 1,000+ projects they have designed in our region over the previous fifty years.

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.

It also happens during London Design Festival - an annual event showcasing London's design heritage, when the world's design community comes to town.   Hosting the evening is author and journalist Sarah Thompson. Among other subjects, Sarah has written about the surprising homes found in some particularly unwelcoming buildings, and about the mixed-up experience of welcoming a child into the world. Welcomed by Sarah, our 12 speakers will then offer their interpretation of the word WELCOME. In true Pecha Kucha style, each speaker has 20 seconds to talk us through 20 slides. With only six minutes to share their thoughts, talks are always fast, funny and fascinating.    Our wonderful line up of speakers includes -  Sarah Buxton / Observational Strategist / In 20 slides Sarah will explain how to tell a great story, to build a narrative that will conjure a feeling of instant connection, and a sense of belonging - no matter the medium you choose to use / Rachel South / Upholsterer / Drawing on her experience travelling and working with weavers in India, Central America and Europe, Rachael has added exciting flair to her approach to furniture and upholstery.
