As Greg Jorgensen's presentation (from PKN Bangkok Vol. 5) will reveal, it's all about the traffic. Pep Joan Tugores is a local jewelry handcrafter and in his presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mallorca Vol. 1), he talks about how he learned to make hand-made jewelry, and then shares a few of his recent projects.

Plastics from continents thousands of miles away wash in on countless beaches every day. Artist Jo Atherton weaves artwork from flotsam found washed up on beaches. In "Flotsam Weaving" from PKN Bedford Vol. 2, we see that their cheerful familiar forms belie a shocking truth: we get older but plastic remains. Though Jo's work isn't intended to foster a culture of blame, she does communicate through her work that we are all tied together in this global waste problem.

Doan Linh Hand Written Letters

“I use handwritten letter to listen and encourage people…” In "Hand Written Letters", from PechaKucha Night Ho Chi Minh City Vol.9, Doan Linh started "Letter to Angel", a non-profit organisation committed to bringing the lost art of handwritten letters back to people in Vietnam and around the world. In this presentation, she shares with us her vision behind L2A and what she hopes to achieve through it. It would be unfair to mention that she’s only 20 years old because her thoughts are much bigger the tiny number!

Hand-Lettered Signboards

"I wasn't worrying about money anymore ... by keeping money out of the social relationships, I also engaged entirely different with the people around me. It was just a much more natural way of being and it released a lot of freedom which was translated into creative expression."In Hand-Lettered Signboards from PechaKucha Night Leiden Vol 15, Lilian Leahy shares quitting her job to trade it for a backpack, sketchbook, pencils, paint and brushes. She travelled for more than a year through South East Asia and India. In more than 100 illustrations she documented her experiences. She also hand-lettered signboards for guesthouses resorts and restaurants in exchange for food and accommodation and that is how she was able to afford a long time of traveling. www.lilianleahy.com

2nd Hand Scenery

"Can you imagine that in a school playground? It would be a wonderful thing to have. At the moment, it's sitting in a landfill." From "2nd Hand Scenery" from PechaKucha Night Glasgow Vol. 31, Matthew Doolan presents 2nd Hand Scenery, a fledgling organization based in Glasgow that aims to find creative ways to help the Scottish entertainment sector reduce the amount of scenery, props, and furniture going to landfill once a production cycle has finished. 2nd Hand Scenery's primary goal is to connect the different elements of the industry with one another, to let the school drama club see what the National Company no longer needs and to facilitate the exchange, to let amateur dramatics groups share a show and to make it as easy as possible for companies and individuals to display their used items before they run out of time and space.  It was founded by two scenic carpenters who after many years in the industry had become dismayed a the sheer volume of useful materials that are lost due to relentless production cycles and crushing time pressures inherent across the sector. So they decided that something had to be done about it.
