@ VOL 10
ON JUN 20, 2017
Life is 10% about what happens to us and 90% about what we do with it and how we take it. In these 20 slides Luca Senatore takes us through the journey from Italy to Cambridge where he learns that the apple might not fall far form the tree... but we almost always have the power to make it roll in whichever direction we want.

ON SEP 22, 2015
"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.

Your Guide to Role-Playing, Rebuilding in Tohoku, and a Photo Gallery Explosion
Presentations A Bangor native with a passion for weird and creative things, Chris Pierce has been a star "Dungeon Master" -- the person who directs a session of a role-playing game -- at the annual SnowCon Gaming Convention in Orono for the past 4 years. His enthusiasm and love of tabletop gaming is addictive -- and shines through in this presentation from PKN Bangor, ME Vol. 4 -- and he’s been known to convince many a "noob" to sit in on a game of Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow. In this presentation (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92), architects Daisuke Sugawara and Masayuki Harada describe a reconstruction project they've been working on, to help rebuild in the Tohoku region. As you'll see, they've been trying to rebuild villages, to keep the community together.

Journey into Eldership
The communal lifestyle and ritual of the Cree aboriginal tribes played a key role in the lives of the two presenters of today's edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Edmonton Vol. 15). We hear from Elder Gilman Cardinal and Tashina Makokis, two members of the Cree tribe, separated by a generation. Gilman speaks of his childhood with the tribe, his adulthood outside of it, and his return through eldership. Tashina speaks on the importance of perpetuating the Cree's cultural memory. She discusses her role in bringing together the youth and elders of her community in an effort to preserve cultural traditions.
My Role as a Storyteller
Though the phrase "a picture is worth a thousand words" is a cliché, photographer Jeanie Adams-Smith takes the concept to heart, and uses her snapshots to tell stories with leagues of emotional depth. In her presentation (from PKN Bowling Green, Vol. 1), Jeanie lets us peek through her viewfinder, and into the lives of kids and parents experiencing pain and exclusion, joy and wonder. To see more of Jeanie's photos, check out her online portfolio.
