Recovery transitions

@ VOL 16 ON JAN 18, 2019

David's presentation started with honoring his mothers life.  David's mom recently passed and he wanted to ensure the world knew how amazing a woman she was in her life.    David's talk transitioned into a history of his own life from being a young boy with hopes and dreams, all the way to being on the streets in his late 20's with no hope and dreams lost. His presentation followed his path to being a person in long term recovery from a substance use disorder through having access to support from multiple entities along the way. David's story was highly impactful in helping attendees see a real life example of recovery in action for himself, others in his family, and many around the world!

Collage City

@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people."

In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December 14th, 2016.

Save the bees

@ VOL 25 ON AUG 22, 2019

Chandra MacDonald - Lilii Press

“The easiest way to help save the bees is to do nothing- don’t mow your lawn, your verge, don’t spray your weeds, don’t cut them down. Just sit back and relax, and know that you are actively supplying the bees with food”

My shop Lilii press was born out of my love for flowers and plants. There is something so magical about being able to press a flower and preserve its original beauty to be enjoyed all year round.

Holy Toledo!

PechaKucha Toledo, Ohio Vol. 4 is coming up on February 22. PKN Toledo was recently featured in the Toledo Free Press; artist and organizer Kimberly Adams was quoted:  The presenters that we have are invested in our community in some form or another and are doing great things. It’s always exciting to see PKN come together. So many people within our community are not aware of their surroundings and everything that is going on. I think most people in attendance are surprised and pleased to hear about all the positives that are happening in Toledo. Read the full article here.

To Feel at Home

Most of us can say with certainty that our idea of home is tied to a specific location. Can you? Roshi Givechi spent much of her youth on the move -- even now, she travels about Asia for work; never truly settling on any one place -- and in "To Feel at Home", today's Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 104) she defines the elements, experiences, rituals that as a whole form her amoebic idea of this concept we hold so dear.
