@ VOL 37 ON SEP 19, 2018

Brianne Fick is a multipotentialite who moved to New Zealand three years ago. With a foundation in marketing and design, Bree understands the severity and risks associated with uninhibited media. At some point between her 8 years in the national Canadian youth military program, and her 4 years studying for an undergrad degree in secondary education, Bree decided to dedicate her talents to inspiring the creation of a more beautiful world. Although she enjoyed the taste of an academic life, Bree set sails for New Zealand and plunged her hands into the soil of entrepreneurship - where she discovered the potential that exists with the merging of sweat, software and local food. From there she realised that she could combine her military, marketing, and entrepreneurship experiences with education. She now creates and facilitates programs to share these skills with adults who opt-in to participate in creating the future that we all hope is possible.

Louise Holstein gave this ardent PechaKucha at London - Vol. 20 - PKNLDN 20 - WeWork and definitely garnered herself a new legion of admirers impressed with the wonderful work she is doing connecting strangers together over food around a table.

Louise set up Mike's Table 3 years ago. Mike's Table puts on evenings that come in pairs, the first is for paying guests which funds the second evening whereby guests are invited to enjoy exactly the same restaurant experience but for free. These guests are referred through charities and organisations supporting those in recovery from homelessness, illness or addiction, refugees, those on low income and the socially isolated. 

Professional chefs are involved in both evenings and devise the menus on the night using food that would otherwise go to waste.

Landscapes in Australia (and Beyond), the Mississippi Goddam Play, and Teaching Kids Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship

Presentations Christian Fletcher is a landscape photographer who photographs not only the beautiful South West of Australia but is now expanding his portfolio to include the rest of Australia and locations around the world. His presentation (from PKN Dunsborough Vol. 5) covers a new photography collaboration, exhibition, and workshop that is coming up in the near future. How did Jonathan Norton get out of writing a 20-page assignment? He promised a 100-page play instead, based on the Nina Simone song "Mississippi Goddam." Here's the story (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10). As we find out in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 9), Kids-Coins is an educational project -- held inside and outside school -- that teaches children and teenagers the basics of financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Sergey Bidenko and Irina Zolotarevych -- co-authors of the "Kids-Coins" projects -- are experienced business coaches who have implemented 37 training and educational programs for adults and youth. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is for Miami's upcoming very special Vol. 20 -- we always love seeing a city reach that number -- which doubles as a pre-Art Basel evening. It happens on December 1, and you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the event page. Photos Mikkeli recently held its very first PKN (and two weeks later, its Vol. 2), and here's the photo gallery [Flickr] to prove it -- you'll also find the full list of presenters with links on the event page.
