@ VOL 14
ON FEB 25, 2016
Siôn Parkinson shares the gruesome yet fascinating history and characteristics of the ever-vital body part, the neck. With Siôn's comedic performance, this will be a presentation you won't want to miss.
Siônis an artist, singer and producer. His performances often see him appearing in costume to invoke the voice of an animal, variously a burning elephant, a stuffed walrus, a lovelorn worm, and most recently a seal who talks and vomits. His work as a producer for Cape Farewell’s ‘Sea Change’ project took him to the Isle of Mull where he was Creative Director of Exhibitions for Comar, a role that in turn inspired his return to Dundee, the city in which he was born. He is producer of the inaugural Dundee Design Festival 2016. @sionparkinson

The Teacher Who Learned to Listen
"Teaching isn’t just about bestowing substantive knowledge to students. It’s about teaching them and giving them experiences that Google can’t."

How easily do we fall on the default of just trying to put our point across, specially if we think about education? Mark Kawakami is passionate about teaching and also describes himself as a failed comedian. In The Teacher Who Learned to Listen from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, he shared what conclusion he came to over the years of teaching.
