Human Rights Tattoo

@ VOL 8
ON DEC 03, 2013
The Human Rights Tattoo project is an art project to create awareness and underline the importance of Human Rights. The idea originates from Sander van Bussel. The murder of fellow artist Steven ‘Nyash’ Nygah in Nairobi motivated him to pursue this idea. HRT's goal is to tattoo the complete text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on individuals, letter by letter. The complete text of this declaration contains 6773 letters. Each person gets one character.

PKN Providence Vol. 7
Another great showing for PechaKucha Night in Providence at last month's Vol. 7, as organizer Stephanie Gerson reports. Looks like our half-year anniversary flew by unnoticed, and Providence already arrives at our 7th PechaKucha Night on Wednesday, September 23rd. (But no worries, we definitely won’t miss the opportunity to celebrate our one year anniversary when it rolls around in March of 2010.) And as an indicator of how we’ve grown, we had four (yes, four) politicians in the crowd: the mayor of Providence David Cicilline, former Rhode Island Senator Lincoln Chafee, member of the RI House of Representatives David Segal (who’s actually come to most PK Nights), and Providence City Councilman Seth Yurdin (who’s also come to most PK nights). As friend and Pecha Kucha regular Andy Cutler so eloquently put it, “if someone threw a grenade at PechaKucha in Providence, Providence would be ---“ Well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be a pretty site for Providence. Without intending to, many of the presentations of the night had a political, activist, or at least civic orientation. Long-time community leader Lorne Adrain talked about the importance of active and ongoing dialogue between citizens and local government, and the organization he recently co-founded with Meredith Pearson in order to cultivate just that: Citizens for a Better Providence. Physician and public health advocate Peter Klatsky discussed the over-allocation of public resources towards increasingly sophisticated medical technologies to help an elite minority versus the alleviation of treatable illnesses for the lower-income majority, with malaria as a case in point. And coordinator of the Center for Prisoner Health and Human Rights Nathaniel Lepp presented about the topic of conspiracy theories, ending with a surprisingly soft and human message regarding the need to include all stakeholders in the recording of histories; a staple of transitional justice. Below, a few more photos from PKN Providence Vol. 7 -- there's more to see in this Flickr photoset. Below, a few presentation images.
You may remember that it wasn't so long ago that Tokyo featured a presentation by an 11-year-old -- Kaden Cowan, whose presentation you can actually watch online -- and now it's Providence's turn to feature a very young presenter, Shae Janiga. Here's a report from organizer Stephanie Gerson. She was fabulous: her name is Shae Janiga and she's a 6th grader at Wyman School in Providence. She plays the piano, violin, and soccer, and Loves horseback riding. She also speaks fluent Slovak and Loves to travel. But most importantly, according to her, Shae is a great big sister to her 3 siblings. Her presentation was called "Global Soccer for All." She started by talking about how soccer has enriched her own life, e.g. by giving her the opportunity to make new friends, travel, and gain more self-confidence. Then she zoomed out to what soccer can do for countries, e.g. enabling the people of countries that have geopolitically tense relations to get along, and respect each other, on the field. (May I remind you she is 11!) But, there's one major problem. (And yes, she made us wait a whole 20 seconds on that 'problem' slide.) The problem being: that girls all over the world don't play soccer. In fact, in many countries, especially countries where women have fewer rights than men, women are actively discouraged from soccer. So how to solve this problem? Well, what she plans to do is live next year with her cousins in Slovakia, and start a girls soccer team there! (The entire audience erupts in cheer.) It was moving, thoughtful, self-aware, and well-delivered. And of course afterward, I got a slew of parents asking me if their kids could present, and we have a 10-year-old lined up for February. You can see more photos from PKN Providence Vol. 10 in this Flickr photoset.

Musings of a Courtroom Sketch Watercolorist

Presenter Bio: Fredy
Fredy is Congolese by nationality, but since 2014 has been in exile in Malawi. His family values of education and service for humanity led him to dedicate his efforts to fight for a noble cause: denouncing the human rights abuses in the Congo. Since coming to Malawi Fredy has experienced life in a refugee camp. Discouraged by the multiple legal, socio-economic, socio-cultural, and psychological bounderies that refugees are faced with, Fredy and his brother saw enormous potential in the youth at the camp and founded Salama Africa in 2014. Only two years later, Salama Africa has promoted youth who were nominated vice-champions in a national-wide dance competition, youth who won the Malawi’s Got Talent competition, and have attracted attention of American filmmakers who produced a documentary about their work. This has been a renaissance of Fredy's desire to serve, and also a fresh start for the youth who are developing their potential and living just some of their dreams. Forced, and forged, Fredy has experienced many new beginnings.
Announcing Our Presenters for Volume 7 – September 20, 2018
We are super excited to announce our next line up of speakers for our seventh volume of PechaKucha Night #ldnont. On Thursday, September 20 we will have FIVE super cool presenters. Here is the lineup (in no particular order yet): Megan O'Neil | Empathy on Fire Empathy on Fire is a talk about understanding empathy as a volunteer in the 2017 BC wildfires. Harry Cosgrove | I’d Rather Be Coaching HockeyHockey is a passion in Harry’s life and he has inspired players to enjoy a sport that is as Canadian as maple syrup and back bacon. David Billson | Business is Broken: Change the ScoreAn entrepreneur faces a stark choice in building her business - build the impactful business you want or change the score? Katy Boychuk | Leading with Your Strengths, Passions, and Values to Live Life to the Fullest Bouncing from contract to contract was not Katy’s idea of a long-term career plan. Last year, she took a purposeful pause to be intentional with her next steps. She hired a Life Coach to guide her journey, (re)branded herself, and leveraged her resources to explore a new career path. What started as a career development journey, became so much more as she discovered how to lead by her strengths, passions and values, in every aspect of her life.
