Heroes and Heroines
BY JON TORRENS
@ VOL 3
ON SEP 22, 2015
"Carrie Fisher was 18 when she starred in Star Wars. She owns that film. She commands all the other characters. [She's] a female character that doesn't have to become masculine to be in charge"
In Heroes and Heroines from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3 Jon Torrens passionately shares about the heroes and heroines from the big screen (and some from the small screen) that have inspired him over the years, highlighting their strengths but not over looking their flaws. The last hero he features is his greatest, adding a sweet twist to a solid line-up of true greats.

In Science Fiction, Science Fact from PechaKucha Night Bexhill on Sea Vol. 2, Alastair Fairley talks about the crossing (for better or worse) of science and fiction.

BY STACEY ROBINSON
@ VOL 16
ON APR 14, 2016
"The work becomes a conversation about class, race, gender and appropriation."
In Building Afrotopia from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, artist Stacey Robinson illustrates how speculating black futures became paramount in his artistic practice as a response to the global displacement of Black and Indigenous people. Robinson shares recent work, beginning with his current Pan-African flag series, representing nations where Black and Indigenous populations are controlled by extreme measures. Robinson then shares works from an in-progress book, 100 Afrofuturists Practitioners, depicting people building future spaces where Black peace exists using S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art(s), and Math). Lastly, Robinson presents works inspired by the past Black Renaissance speculative Black Futures, with Afrofuturist digital collages inspired by Romare Bearden, James Denmark, Manzel Bowman, and other past and contemporary mixed media collage artists.
Científico en es película
BY FRANCISCO J. CARRERA
@ VOL 1
ON APR 27, 2017
Francisco J. Carrera habló de su pasión por descubrir la ciencia en la vida cotidiana y el cine. ¿Cómo ven a los científicos? ¿Somos todos Sheldon Coopers? ¿O el señor Doktor Frankenstein? ¿O tal vez sólo gente normal con un trabajo peculiar?
La science-fiction : un miroir de notre monde
BY MARC ATTALAH
@ VOL 6
ON NOV 01, 2018
Et si les récits d’invasions extraterrestres, de robots, de super-héros ou d’intelligences artificielles ne nous parlaient pas d’abord du futur, mais montraient le reflet peu glorieux de nos visages ou les transformations qui ont affecté nos identités ? La science-fiction, car c’est bien de cela qu’il s’agira dans cette performance, a souvent eu mauvaise presse : il est temps de corriger le tir et d’en montrer les richesses ! Tout ce que vous avez toujours voulu savoir sur la science-fiction en 6 minutes et 40 secondes ! »

Du robot à l’IA : quand la science-fiction nous parle de notre humanité
BY MARC ATTALAH
@ VOL 10
ON AUG 31, 2019
Ma présentation visera à montrer comment la science-fiction, depuis le début du XXe siècle, s’ingénie à inventer des images pour réfléchir, comme dans un miroir, le portrait, pas toujours glorieux, de ce que nous faisons subir à notre humanité. Des robots aux intelligences artificielles, en passant par les cyborgs, venez contempler les reflets ambigus de nos visages de plus en plus numériques…

From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines
"How many gems of scientific discovery are out there, published in articles, that we don’t know about?" One of the goals of scientific research should be the improvement of the human reality. But have we created a world in which the journey from discovery to society is so exhausting that it deters academics from embarking on it? And if so, can we do something about it? In "From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, Bart Knols discusses how scientists need to better communicate with those who are outside their field in order to contribute to society's development.
