Listen to Ingetje Tadros's stories - what she sees and feels is expressed fully through the words and her photographs. Through her photographs, Ingejte speaks about the families and people whom she met in Bali. Their stories of dealing with mental illness and forced to live in locked rooms. The experience has left her realizing that she takes her own freedom for granted.

"By and large, most people thought it was time for change. And I was going to be part of that change."
In "Disabling Labelling" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3, writer, mentor, and idealist Ann Hawkins passionately talks about equal opportunity and the modern world lessons that she insists we must learn that race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, and all the various labels that we are so accustomed to assigning each other, have very little to do with the kind of people we actually are or how effective we can be in the world. "It's time to tidy up our language" she adds referring to limitations labels give us, concluding "we owe it to the next generation."
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, October 15th, 2015.

PechaKucha Night Iloilo Volume 1: Pucha! Kucho-Kucho!
The first PechaKucha Night in Iloilo City is happening tonight at Brew Burgers and Cafe featuring 6 presentations, selector music, and spoken poetry performances! We are all excited for tonight. The presenters and the performers have prepared their asses off to deliver one pretty awesome event. Our featured speakers for the night include: Harren Fegarido, a staff writer for Project Iloilo, a blog-podcast project that aims to document and spread Iloilo culture - tell stories about Iloilo and its magic to those who live and have passed through the city. He was born and raised in Iloilo City but has been away from the city for more than 3 years. He wants to live a monastic life when he reaches 60. Ayn Bedonia, a practicing OB-Gyne in the city, is an advocate of safe sex and female sexuality. She is committed to empower women to embrace and enjoy their sexuality while being responsible doing it. She loves the beach and she loves wine and she has the luxury to enjoy both in Iloilo City that's why she can never imagine another home. Johann Bolaño, a part of Aftersyx, a collective based in Iloilo that aims to push the boundaries of self-expression through music. He has been one of the influencers of Iloilo subcultures since the early days. He believes that we, as Ilonggos have roles to play (in terms of music and the arts) in shaping Iloilo into a more legitimate cultural hub. Myka Perlas, the girl behind Live by Healthy Kitchen, the first health restaurant/health food store in Iloilo City that started out as a calorie-counted online delivery food service. She is an advocate of healthy living by healthy eating and is committed to spread the health-conscious culture in the city. Her passion to contribute positively to the Iloilo community is amazing. Clem Tan, the token urban gardener in his circles. He has been growing food in his garden for years. He has expanded his growing projects in friends' houses, in empty community lots, and in vacant spaces at work. He is passionate about growing food in home gardens (even work gardens now apparently). Growing kitchen gardens is a culture he wants to spread in Iloilo through his upcoming project, Herbs in Pots. His goal is to equip people with start-up food garden kits. Poona Pas, the girl behind White Thoughts, a self-published book of fragmented thoughts from her journey through depression. She is an advocate for mental health awareness and loves educating people on the biological underpinnings of mental disorders. She is also a believer that music and the arts and a creative life are tremendous weapons in combatting mental disorders. She believes that the creative scene in Iloilo can be nurtured to support the rising prevalence of depression in the city. We also look forward to the spoken poetry performances of our three poets tonight: T.M. Garcia is a writer and a musician. She writes music and sings for a punk band based in New Jersey called A Hopeless Mess. She loves unicorns and devours souls for breakfast. Mica Cruz is a freelance food photographer and graphic artist who spends her free time baking and getting baked. Kristine Buenavista is a published writer who likes to tell stories and to be told of the daily magic that occurs in others’ lives. She drinks leaf tea whenever she takes breaks from being perky. We have Nervegasm playing the whole night and we have Garry Balcoba with us, a local tattooist mastering fine line tattoos, to have a live tattoo session all through out the event. We also have Kasingkasing Press to display their books at the event and La Roasteria (the local cafelier) to display their local specialty coffee. There will be local artists and creators who will be selling local merchandises as well. Herbs in Pots will have a raffle of 20 herbs to give away and Live by Healthy Kitchen will be feeding free spring rolls to everyone. Join us for a mind jam tonight! It is gonna be fun!
