The desire to live in our home or the desire to live of "COSA nostra"?
I will tell you how a place that was previously owned by a mafioso can become useful.
Even in our much mistreated city, there is an association that protects those who want to live there have inborn: minors, with particular attention to our territory.
We protect their safety, their growth and their serenity.
La voglia di vivere a casa nostra o la voglia di vivere di "COSA nostra"?
Vi racconto come può diventare utile un luogo che era prima di proprietà di un mafioso.
Anche nella nostra tanto bistrattata città, esiste un'associazione che tutela coloro che la voglia di vivere ce l'hanno innata: i minori, con particolare attenzione al nostro territorio.
Tuteliamo la loro incolumità, la loro crescita e la loro serenità.

Liever talent dan geld
By Martijn Kagenaar In een maakbare samenleving gelooft niemand meer. Maar dat je een beetje kunt bijdragen aan een ‘betere’ wereld, dat staat vast. Zo kun je geld geven aan een Goed Doel. Zo’n aflaat is simpel, maar ook vrijblijvend. Je goede gevoel verdampt vaak waar je bij staat. Spannender, diepgaander en ingrijpender wordt het als je je eigen talent inzet. Dat kan leiden tot schitterende producten en projecten. Neem nou dit ‘Zero rupee’-biljet waarmee 5th Pillar in India de corruptie te lijf gaat. Als een ambtenaar je om steekpenningen vraagt, breng je hem met dit biljet in grote verlegenheid. Je maakt voor alle omstanders zichtbaar dat hij de corruptie in stand houdt. En jij niet. Het biljet heeft in twee jaar al geleid tot tientallen arrestaties en berispingen. Indiërs kunnen het in al hun landstalen downloaden. Je kunt je talent ook gebruiken om bewustzijn te creëren. Dat kan leiden tot bijzondere evenementen. Zoals bureau KesselsKramer dat tijdens het WK voetbal van 2002 een wedstrijd organiseerde tussen de twee laagst geklasseerde landen. De film The Other Final is een aangrijpend bewijs voor het feit dat sport alleen verbroedert als er geen zware commerciële belangen op het spel staan. (Nummer 202, Bhutan, versloeg nummer 203, Montserrat, overigens met 4-0. Hun ranking klopte dus.) En afgelopen zaterdag vonden op de zevende verjaardag van PechaKucha Nights (PKN’s *) meer dan 130 PKN’s plaats. De creatieve presentatiekrachten werden gebundeld om de aandacht nog eens te vestigen op Haïti. En zo ging er een heuse WAVE over de wereld: vanuit Tokio verplaatste die zich via Skype westwaarts. In elke stad hield de WAVE 10 minuten halt voor een livestream-uitzending van één presentatie. Helaas lukte het niet om op tijd in te bellen bij PechaKucha Maastricht. Anders had de hele wereld kunnen genieten van de hilarische Anti-Panda Propaganda van bioloog Lemke Kraan. Met de miljoenen die nu aan de reuzenpanda worden uitgegeven kunnen we volgens haar veel nuttiger dingen doen voor een ‘betere wereld’. Voor zo’n missie kun je moeilijk geld inzamelen. Maar dankzij Lemkes presentatietalent trekt haar boodschap nu wel de hele wereld over. * In 2003 organiseerde Klein Dytham architecture (KDa) in Tokio de eerste PechaKucha Night. Zij bedachten het concept dat nu in bijna 300 steden wordt toegepast: wie een origineel idee heeft, presenteert dat met 20 dia’s van 20 seconden. Na 6 minuten en 40 seconden springt de volgende spreker op het podium. Zo zie je op een avond 12 kakelverse concepten aan je voorbij trekken. In Maastricht kwamen al 1.200 mensen naar de vijf avonden en bekeken meer dan 16.000 mensen defilmpjes.
In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo's special PechaKucha x ArchiAid event), Kumiko Inui covers the difficulties associated with the reconstruction of a junior high school (in Shichigahama, Miyagi Prefecture) severly affected by the 2011 Great Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. With dozens of faculty members as clients, her firm worked to convince the future denizens of this school of the benefits of the small structures within the campus called "Little Spaces".
It's a Little Bit Weird...
In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 66, during Tokyo Design Week 2009) British designer Anthony Dickens muses about the various anomalies that lead him down the path to inspiration. Anthony has been running his London-based product and furniture design studio for nearly 15 years now. His firm's modus operandi is to re-think everyday established forms, and renew them for use within our present day lives.
Little Island Management
In today's Presentation of the Day, "Little Island Management" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 67, Mari Kojima haphazardly, yet hilariously, speaks in a stream-of-consciousness fashion on her photography, her past, and her artistic themes. She elaborates on the idea that the photographer learns about his/her desires through the act of viewing and shooting the world with their instrument.
Listening to Popcorn
The nefarious, hidden underworld of popcorn is out there; you just have to keep your ears to the ground. Is popcorn just a delicious snack to enjoy or is there some deeper meaning to be discovered? In "Listening to Popcorn" from PKN Sharjah Vol. 4, Rami Salame, an enthusiast for investigation and popcorn, cracks down on the mystery shrouded around popcorn and seeks to uncover the truth of its existence. Listen as he explains his comical deduction of popcorn's unlikely relationship to typewriters and accordions.

Do you hear that? For those that can hear, it is a constant and involuntary act. Listening, on the other hand, is a choice and takes effort. We, as humans, are listening less and less to the environments in which we live. Is this because we create sonically distasteful cities that aren’t worth listening to? Or is it our waning interest in listening to blame for inadequate urban soundscape planning? Mitch Allen will explore the answers to these questions at Pecha Kucha Night Ubud 20x20x20 on August 26th. Mitch is the founder of OneTwoStudios, with over 10 years experience in music composition and 8 years in acoustics. In both fields he has been engaged by big profile clients to work on landmark projects, and commissioned for various soundscape installations. His passion lies in sound design in the context of urban environments.
Little Maine Sculptures
"Created from driftwood collected over time, mixed with carved toys I made for my son with my grandfather’s tools, I feel like a kid having fun again.”Leith MacDonald spent six summers and a winter working on Monhegan. Years after moving off the island, Monhegan has resurfaced like a great whale in Leith’s art making practice. In "Little Maine Sculptures" from PechaKucha Night Monhegan Vol. 1, MacDonald explains how these pieces are inspired by years of memories and dreams of a place with which long ago he fell in love.
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." It is easy to grasp the concept that communication is a two-way street but how many of us really put the theory into practice? 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.
"It makes sense to me that we would be getting our power from the most powerful force we know of and if it gives us life and everything around us life, Why can't it give our cartoon characters life too?" In "Light Lite" From PechaKucha Night Taos Vol. 18, PechaKucha Night Taos' youngest presenter to date, Jackson Boyd, explains his experience of living off the grid and the future of solar energy.
