Let the chit chat begin! Pecha Kucha nights, Birmingham edition
Rocio Carvajal Cortés writes about her experience talking at the 12th Birmingham Pecha Kucha! Taking part on a multicultural, interdisciplinary and international conversation, meeting new people, new ideas and be surprised by the infinite resources of human creativity is what PechaKucha is all about. As long-time fan, host and speaker I was excited to see the open invitation to participate in the 12th edition of PK nights in Birmingham, UK. It had been a long time since I last experienced one and it was in another continent, another latitude and I was involved in projects around urbanism and regeneration. Here you can see a sample of the works I presented years ago for a PK in Oaxaca, Mexico. After a friendly and quick exchange of emails with Ben Waddington and Pete Ashton I was signed up to share my new projects on gastronomic heritage and colonial bread from Mexico. The impeccable organisation was only compared with the rather sophisticated venue, the brand new and dare I say already emblematic Curzon Building of Birmingham City University was a glamorous canvas for a night full of thought-provoking projects and interesting people. It was a great experience and I’m ever so thankful to the PK-Brum team for having us all on the 12th edition. I invite you to believe in the power of open and limitless imagination; make things happen and share. Rocio Watch her talk: The Language of Food: Bread Stamping in Colonial Mexico.
