Kolektif Revey Twa

Presenting at PechaKucha Night in Mauritius Vol. 2, AIDS/HIV activists Kolektif Revey Twa brought their message to the audience. Organizer Stephen Ng talks more about the association, and what it means to the country. Kolektif Revey Twa -- literally "The Wake Up Collective" in Mauritian creole -- is an association of artists who are fighting against AIDS/HIV in Mauritius. It is estimated that there are 15,000 HIV positive people in the country -- for a population of 1.2 million, this number is actually quite alarming. One of the reasons for this number is the lack of sensitization and education about the disease and how it is spread, but also a lack of initiative from the authorities to tackle the problem effectively. The "Zarbiens," a group of creative people led by Stephan Jauffret-Rezannah, Nicolas Bastien-Sylva, and Emilien Jubeau (who presented at Vol. 1) have created this collective with the objective getting things moving, along with other associations. Their presentation at Vol. 2 was indeed quite moving. They came up in front of the audience with their masks to send a specific message that the AIDS infected people are unortunately seen differently and that it could be anyone of us. They explained their motivation and their goals, by using their talents to the profit of a very important problem...and that's without asking for anything in return. In fact, they have recently engaged themselves in a huge project to sensitize Mauritians of the AIDS/HIV problem. It will mainly involve the use of billboards in strategic areas of the country that clearly will send their message and hopefully make all of us get a better understanding of the disease and the people involved. They have been doing a tremendous job already by using their time and creativity, and the thing they are waiting on now is to get the necessary funding to get their latest project up and running. Local authorities and other private organisations have already promised to do so but they are still waiting for the actions. Unfortunately this is how it is in the country. Maybe that is a call for the PK Foundation to possibly help them out...a help for the whole of Mauritius...

Megan Mann

Today we cover another presentation from the "PechaKucha for Haiti" event in Berlin held in February. This time it's Megan Mann with "Somewhere between dusk and dawn -- a life around club music." 'Motivation Megan' rocked at the end of our Berlin PechaKucha for Haiti. When desperately asking around for presenters to jump in 3 days before the event was scheduled, it was her casual nonchalance and effortless promise to show some of her amazing photos that gave us organizers enough energy to pull it all through. A Guy Called Gerald -- who Megan is working with -- made some relaxing live music for Megan's photos from around the world.

Hermosillo begins!

Last May 3rd, Hermosillo (north México) launched its first PechaKucha Night with an attendance of around a hundred of art enthusiasts. We started off with an introductory video kindly provided by Astrid Klein in Tokyo and we all learned how to properly pronounce PechaKucha as "pe-chak-cha" rather than its spanish literal form. At 9pm sharp, our attendees and presenters took their seats and welcomed Citlali Haro, a local Graphic designer and Illustrator who has made art for famous mexican singer Lila Downs and as she affirmed, finds human body structures very interesting to draw.  Following Haro, Abel Corrales took the stage and told us how he found Aerial silk performances as his life motivation and a cool way of making a living. Corrales finished his spectacular presentation by suggesting we should ignore fear and make our way until finding our own passion. After Abel, Yana showed us around her wide variety of illustration styles and shared with us that she finds black and white illustrations easier to manage compared to colours as Yana believes it looses a bit of its authenticity. As Haro, she also finds human bodies quite interesting to illustrate and also loves to draw beards! Yana is currently under the "30 Days Drawing Challenge" and invited the audience to join her. (Find more about Yana here) Jessica Meor was next to present and gave us an insight on what she currently is working on: watercolour gifs. Meor said she also likes to use her own family pictures on her projects as it gives more meaning to the finished product. Jessica keeps pictures of regular people faces she finds interesting and later on she works with them and animate them by converting her art into gifs. (Find more about Jessica here) Later on, we were delighted by Mario Verdugo's work - he also likes to digitally illustrate human bodies, especially females. During his speech, Mario shared his experience during Art School and told us he was very much into drawing human bodies until his Uni Lecturer gave the class the assignment of drawing a naked old male model. After being very confused by the exercise, he decided he didn't like it that much really and went back to drawing cartoonesque people and designing. (Find more about Mario here) Bonsai Babies, a "terror-like music" band, joined after Mario and shared with us the 'behind-the-scenes' story about the members, the origin of the band's name and gave us a short performance in stage with the different tecniques they use for every EP. (Find more about Bonsai Babies here)  Mexican/American cinematographer Luis Horacio Pineda showed us around his journey of documentary filming he has done so far, the 'not-so-known' details, his experience as a cinematographer both in Mexico and the United States and the glory of working hand to hand with Lucy Liu. (Find more about Luis Horacio here) Eloy Aluri, a very passionate mexican Chef and entrepreneur shared to us his experience of becoming one of the best local and national Chefs, his work overseas and how he could reach success with the motivation of his late Grandfather. His presentation was filled with heart-to-heart lines and ended by presenting his latest business and the edible art he executes there. Definitely a memorable presentation. (Find more about Eloy here) Following Eloy, Paukaro Fotografía took us around her sharp gallery of Family photoshoots, how she decides on the location, props, lenses and concepts before meeting the client. She shared how funny it was to photograph certain couple first on their wedding, then a few months later on their pregnancy shoot and ending with a family portrait. (Find more about Paukaro here) Claudia Orduño took the stage next and showed us the process behind the structure of "Soy Sonora", a magazine that publishes articles about local art, architecture, cuisine and cultural events. She also invited the presenters to join her next edition. (Find more about "Soy Sonora" here) Next, Carolina Delatorre shared with us about "COAT: Comunidad Animalera Trabajando", a Non-Profit Organisation dedicated to protect abandoned animals in Hermosillo, maintained by kind donations, bake sales and a team of 200+ volunteers who help her Organisation to rescue cats, dogs and other animals. She proudly announced a new Pro-Animal law approved by the State Congress earlier that week which punishes citizens who deliberately hurt animals and or limits their living space, bans bullfighting practices and prohibits using animals as an entertainment method, for example at a Circus. As a community, the venue stood up, clapped and cheered in happiness and solidarity. (Find more about COAT and how to help here) Closing the night, fashion designer Arturo Valdéz joined the stage and shared about his experience at Mercedes Benz: Fashion Week México, his haute couture, how he sometimes chooses random fabrics (such as curtains) and turns them into fabulous creations. He made a very clear point: our location shouldn't limit the capacity to execute any project and make it great and successful, especially with modern technology at hand. (Find more about Arturo here) Thanks to PechaKucha for supporting this event and we are very excited to be presenting the second Volume. Gracias!

Hermosillo Night #2

Hermosillo, Sonora, México. October 10, 2013. With double the assistance and double the fun, Hermosillo presented its second PechaKucha Night at the mecca of indie/local music "Backroom". Mexican sculptor Enrique Aviléz was the first presenter on stage and took us around his life-long journey of working with stone, copper, several types of clay, glass, wood and any other material that will help in the execution of his multiple ideas influenced entirely by the local culture. Enrique shared with us an interesting point of view: he believes the name of the streets in a city shapes its identity, just like certain features define us as a human being. Find more about Enrique here. Graphic designer and photographer Alejo Gastélum invited us to witness his collection of Art Toys, inspired by a well-known toy brand. He showed a passion for geometric shapes and optical illusions and his experience and thoughts about working with logotypes and branding for local businesses. Find more about Alejo here. Following the format and taking advantage of it, Desierto Indie gave us a packed-full of ideas presentation. Their project consists of documenting local gigs and cultural events with videos and photographs but the core idea behind it is allowing the future generations consult this sort of "gig/event library" to let them know how cool Hermosillo's music scene "was" in 2013. Their motivation also consists on expanding the art variety in the city and creating a historic archive of the current art movement. Surf Desierto Indie's library here. Next to Desierto Indie, David Norzagaray captivated the crowd with such interesting project which consists on producing music to use as therapy for disabled people. All of this, fusioned with his passion for Mexico and most of all, the northern Mexico's chords of the Sonoran desert. David's most recent execution includes a music album for kids with lyrics completely inspired by universal literature. Find more about David's work here. Speaking of captivating, Daniel Ríos showed us the massive influence on todays creative processes and its results from a speedy technology development perspective. How different the art-creating life was back then where videos were literally 'cut' and 'glued' back together and how simple it is today by just tapping a few times on a super-clear display and upload it anywhere within minutes. Find more about Daniel here. Miguel Franco's presentation was as brilliant as his cinematography career. His experience has given him plenty of emotions and character including probably the most important: perseverance and stepping out of the comfort zone. Miguel told us how film has been his dream since he was a kid and all the trouble and happiness this has brought to him including a few career-threatening accidents. Find more about Miguel here. Mexican fashion designer Isa Valdéz shared with us her creative process inside the fashion/textile business and the different ways she chooses to come up with a method to execute an idea and the mysterious places she can get into, obtaining as a result always three ideas at once. She compares it to solving a puzzle. Her main goal is creating an emotion in her and the spectator at once. This way, Isa feels she connects with the world, being her little daughter a fundamental part of her motor. Find more about Isa here. Carlos Iván was one of those extra-interesting presenters. He photographs abandoned houses, cars, towns and all sort of situations that tell a story to his camera lens. Carlos perspective certainly showed us through his pictures the beauty of isolated objects, almost as if they were beautiful sculptures in the middle of nowhere narrating a charming tale. Find more about Carlos here. After a successful beer break, Miriam Salado was kind enough to explain from top to bottom, the meticulous process of building an art exhibition. Her paintings, part of "Muerte y Gloria (Death and Glory)" show the heavy influence of mexican-american cultures in clothing, habits and the new ways of living and gave Miriam a second place in the 8th Visual Art Biennale of Sonora. Find more about Miriam here. "Sin Llorar (No crying)" consists of a determined couple of local artists who came to revolutionize the custom tattoo industry in the community with their high-quality custom art. They shared with us the complexity of the process and the hard work it requires to usually compress a lot of feelings onto one little graphic on the customer's skin. Be brave and make an appointment here. Fernando Valles a local TV host, gave us an insight on rustic to modern video-making, the television life and the long ride he has experienced with "Video Track", a tv show aimed at young visual art enthusiasts. Find more about Fernando and Video Track here. Our next presenter was the shocking moment of the night. Mexican radio/voice-creative César Parra amazed us with his broad experience with radio, jingles and advertising. He has provided professional voice services for Pepsi and other famous brands. We all cheered and squeaked in happiness the very moment he started performing the voice of several Thundercats characters (cartoon) on stage as he worked in the project back then. We were so astonished by his presentation that none of us remembered to snap a pic. :( Find more about Cesar here. Our next presenter Keops took the stage and taught us about the importance of co-working and the amazing results it produces. His presentation included a well resumed list of benefits from working along with other creative people and how far and big a project can turn with just the right combination of people, all started with just a simple idea. Find more about Keops here. Sergio Durón was one of our last presenters but managed to keep our already tipsy heads with his clever work. His broad graphic design experience involves several local communities, being the most famous "Bikes & Beers" where the Hermosillo bike enthusiasts gather at a certain landmark, travel for a few kilometers and finish at a bar having a couple of beers and sharing the fandom. Find more about Sergio here. Our last presenter Javier Quiñonez gave us a tour around the geology of the city. Being the "Cerro de la Campana (Bell Hill)" one of the most important landmarks in the city, he taught us about the resonancy of the rocks surrounding said landmark, therefore the name of the famous hill that can be seen almost from every point in Hermosillo on a clear day. Find more of Javier here.  Thanks again to PechaKucha in Tokyo for letting us hold the event in Hermosillo and being part of the Global Night that we enjoyed so much. We would also like to thank Backroom for letting us host the event in this venue. -Elizabeth Torres         Photos by: Carolina Fierros and E. Torres.
