The magic of Indigo!

@ VOL 25 ON FEB 28, 2018

In this presentation Jenai Hooke reveals the magic of indigo and her fascination with the ancient art of botanical dyeing.

Jenai is a maker and an alchemist, working from her bushland studio in Eudlo where she can be found doing all kinds of amazing things from boiling up pots of Bunya husks to turn into golden silk, to collecting mud from a nearby creek to paint symbols on fabric. Jenai has travelled far and to study with the natural dye masters of Japan, France, Mexico and the USA, bringing home new knowledge to pass on to the participants of her many workshop in Australia and New Zealand. She founded the Sunshine Coast Natural Dyers Interest Group (SCNDIG) in 2015 and members share, learn, and develop their skills as dyers and artists.

Timpson Creek Farm

@ VOL 36 ON AUG 26, 2018

Through study, design, and implementation, we are capable of setting up food systems that mimic nature's flow, are easy to manage, work on nature's renewable engine, and house closed fertility loops that increase overall sustainability. "Making" these places where nature and production meet offer many rewards both felt on an individual/spiritual growth curve and on the greater community that have access to fresh food and experiences within nature's matrix. Darby Weaver shares with us about these fascinating systems in her presentation.

Young Filmmaker Shines at PKN Coquitlam

We've had a few very young presenters participate at PechaKucha Nights before -- you may remember when we covered PKN Providence's Shae Janiga -- and here's another amazing young girl presenting at her first PKN, 11-year-old filmmaker Miranda Andersen, who presented at last night's PKN in Coquitlam Vol. 2. Organizer Helen Daniels shares this bio of Miranda which we post below, and here's also a link to a piece on her from The Now (where the photo was taken from). We're also very happy to note that Miranda is just back from LA, where she accepted a prize for her film on Mary Hagedorn.My name is Miranda Andersen. I am ll years old. I made my first film when I was 9. It started as a writing project on heroes. Since my hero was local I wanted to take the project a step further and turn it into a film. After that, every Monday afternoon after school, my teacher helped me to learn about making movies using iMovie. It was entered in the My Hero Film Festival in California and I won. My next film was a short silent on the same subject, Ruth Foster (I worked with Ruth as a volunteer at the Mossom Creek Hatchery in Port Moody). I did this film to fit the criteria for an Earth Day Canada competition. It won a best overall award. Last year I sat on a film jury in Vancouver and entered one of my films at the festival as well and won best screenplay. When I was 10 I got interested in a scientist named Mary Hagedorn who is a marine biologist with the Smithsonian Institute who is trying to save coral using cryogenics. I went to Hawaii to interview her and she gave me a tour of the facility she works at and an interview. Then I worked at home on school days on my teacher's laptop to complete this movie. Next I made another movie on Mary for a whole different festival (Planet in Focus) and it was screened in Toronto - I even got paid for it. I've finished another short silent on Mary for this year's Earth Day Canada festival. I enjoy making all these films and I already have some ideas for future ones. I think of myself as a artist first and a filmmaker second. I take art lessons and love to paint, draw and do anything crafty.

PKN Vancouver Inspires Curiosity

Vancity Buzz has a report on the recent PKN Vancouver Vol. 25. PechaKucha’s Vancouver organizers, Steven and Jane Cox from Cause+Affect, kicked things off with some food for thought. They challenges our understanding of our city by insisting that Vancouver’s Green City initiative must include the protection of arts and culture. This set the stage for the former operators of the Waldorf in the speaker line up toward the night who reflected on the loss of the cultural venue and warned that the closing of the Waldorf was only the tip of the iceberg in the future of arts and culture space. The presentations themselves were very thought-provoking and reminded the audience to look at things from a completely different perspective. My personal favourites were Julian Thomas and his marvellous Gather Round initiative, and of course, the Waldorf revitalisers Thomas Anselmi and Ernesto Gomez, who put some amazing context of how important the Waldorf actually was for our music and arts scene. They listed off an incredible line-up of talent who had performed in the venue, one being the surging Vancouver talent, Grimes. Vancouver's Vol. 26 is set for February 28.
