How to survive getting older?

@ VOL 29 ON FEB 29, 2016

How to survive getting older? That is the question asked by Ludo Hellemans. We are facing an ageing society, especially here in Limburg. The demographic change poses new challenges for the entire society. It is not only a challenge for the elderly but also for younger citizens.

Ludo has a solution for this challenge, a new form of community housing for citizens over 50, located right in the middle of the city holding two core characteristics: mutual support to ensure autonomy of the residents and sustained interaction with the neighbourhood.

There's a broad upcoming sense that in our daily, busy life making a true connection with another person is not that easy. We feed ourselves with a spectacular variety of social activities that are maybe not that social at all, when we take a closer look.

How I became a refugee

@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

We have all seen the images of migrants arriving in Europe, but have you met one? Haroon Rezaie and his family took the risk and journeyed to the Netherlands. Now he wants to share his experience in order to give people a vision about the life of refugees and why they became a refugee. This could be either that they came by favour or they were compelled by the living circumstances to leave everything behind and start life again in a new place. This is the ultimate story to inspire perseverance and determination in any situation.

Providing hope to children in the Gambia

@ VOL 34 ON JAN 30, 2018

For Mariëlle Daemen, starting a foundation had been a dream ever since she visited the Gambia for the first time. Back then, she witnessed poverty and many children not being able to go to school. This led her to co-found the Kids2School Foundation. 

Starting from the principle that education is a basic right for every child in the world, Kids2School is trying to give more children in the Gambia access to education. Children who out of poverty would never have a chance to go to school and as such could never hope for a better future for them and their family. For the sponsors of the children, the foundation provides a very direct, one-on-one opportunity to contribute to a better world as well.

Do you feel at home in Maastricht?

@ VOL 36 ON JUN 19, 2018

Why do highly-skilled individuals come to the Maastricht region? Why do they want to stay? Or why do they plan to leave again? And how can we make the Euregio Meuse-Rhine more attractive for them? 

These are some of the questions that Julia Reinold tackles in her PhD research at Maastricht University. She also is a true child of this region herself: Julia grew up in the German part of the Euroregion, studied at Maastricht University and is now working there as a researcher.

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.

Deanne the Hooper

Not only did Tokyo-based "hooper" Deanne introduce the art of hooping -- that's right folks, it's no longer about the "hula" anymore -- to a captivated crowd at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 61, she capped her presentation with a brilliant display of her art for the audience. If you're new to hooping, than you'll find out all you need to know from Deanne's Hooplovers website -- she gives classes on top of performing regularly. For those in attendance, we were treated to a very clear approach to the topic: the presentation was built as a series of answers to FAQs. The photos of Deanne's performance come courtesy of Masao Tamaoki.

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.

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.
