The pleasures of road running in Pyongyang

BY VERA SCHOLZ
@ VOL 7 ON SEP 14, 2017

Vera Scholz’s evocation of the 'pleasures’ associated with running in North Korea don’t exactly fit the stereotypical lens through which we are encouraged to view this somewhat secretive country. As this story unravels we learn the running event is secondary to Vera’s “self-delusional quest to look behind the scenes”, as she so succinctly expresses it. This captivating narrative is embedded in every image.

PechaKucha in Fayetteville NC

We know, we know! Traditionally, PechaKucha is known for being held in bars and bohemian hubs around the world and NOT at non-profit coffee shops in The Middle of Nowhere, North Carolina. So the questions are going to start pouring in: Why did you decide to host PechaKucha at Detour Coffee House? What made you people think you'd be successful at it? What does this have to do with your mission?  WHAT ABOUT "BEER BREAKS"??? These are all valid questions and we'd like to take an opportunity to... explain ourselves.  Detour Coffee House is a true competitor amongst coffee houses in Fayetteville NC. However we have a mission that is slightly beyond serving coffee with excellence. In its simplest terms, that mission is to help people connect as a community around world-friendly products. That's it! To this end we try to do a few things:  Direct Trade Coffee - We only serve two brands of coffee at Detour Coffee House (Joe van Gogh and Land of a Thousand Hills). Both of these brands have gone above and beyond when choosing coffees that aren't only among the best in the world, but also socially and economically conscious. To match, our baristas are extensively trained because our espresso machines aren't automated and our coffee is made by hand using a traditional pour-over method. In other words, our baristas are true coffee experts working with some of the best ingredients in the world.  Community Center - Here's a confession for you. Detour Coffee House is really an undercover community center. But not in the sense of weekly fish fries or local government meetings (even though we're ok with that!). We aim to make Detour a place where people can connect with each other to share ideas, knowledge, fellowship and other things in the name of community. Since World War II, people have increasingly separated themselves physically (i.e. higher fences, closed-in garages, fewer local markets, etc.). We feel that there is a tendency our present world to live independently of each other and if we fail to do so, we are portrayed as failures. We believe fully that our strengths come from connections and from working together as our ancestors did so many years ago. Yes, even in this age of incredible technologies - we need each other.  Local Music - Few things define communities as well as its music and culture. That's why Detour Coffee House continues to organize events around things like music, comedy and other artistic disciplines. We host open mics, featured artists and other MOSTLY family-friendly music events in Fayetteville NC.  Family Fun - Detour pushes forward to create new creative ways and new reasons for people to connect. We have weekly Family Nights and other events that are intended to be wonderful fresh new ways for families to come out and enjoy some fun things to do. These are only SOME of the ways that we are trying to make a positive impact on the Fayetteville community. PechaKucha-Fayetteville will bring a whole new community of people together to simply... share ideas, visions, skills and experiences. That's what it's all about. Drawing inspiration from each other and finding new ways to help and grow with one another.  We'll see you there! Thanks for reading.

City Focus: The North Pole

It's a little known fact that one of the most active cities in the PechaKucha Global Network is also one of the most remote, all the way at the North Pole. Our organizer up there is a bit of a mysterious fellow, goes by the name of "Sam Klaus" and apperently uses PKN as an innovation tool for his employees, which are said to number in the 1000's.

Jewel of North Queensland

We came together with the common bond for all things creative and community.
