Recovery transitions

BY DAVID DOUGLAS
@ VOL 16 ON JAN 18, 2019

David's presentation started with honoring his mothers life.  David's mom recently passed and he wanted to ensure the world knew how amazing a woman she was in her life.    David's talk transitioned into a history of his own life from being a young boy with hopes and dreams, all the way to being on the streets in his late 20's with no hope and dreams lost. His presentation followed his path to being a person in long term recovery from a substance use disorder through having access to support from multiple entities along the way. David's story was highly impactful in helping attendees see a real life example of recovery in action for himself, others in his family, and many around the world!

PKN Osnabrueck organizer Clemens Gruber sends in this update following this week's Vol. 5 event. PechaKucha Osnabrueck was part of the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" with a presentation from Robert Buss about the "Disposable Office." Some ideas for sustainable, cheap, but pretty furniture -- this was the brainwork of our support! At our 5th PKN we did the financial side, as ideas only cannot build a school or office. We raised $211.29. As with other cities, let us remind everyone that you can still go to any city page and donate directly there to show your support.

PKE at the University of Lethbridge

We don't cover them regularly here, and they don't all get added to the section devoted to them on the PechaKucha website, but we do in fact support one-off PechaKucha events (PKE), as a way of allowing events to be held using the PK 20x20 format outside of the context of the regular PechaKucha Nights (which are city-based, and focus on creatives). The poster above was for a recent one at the University of Lethbridge in Canada.

Cultural Exchange Through Humor and an Art Support Group in Indonesia

Presentations Luke Lawrence and Mika Karashima are from the British Council in Japan. 2012 is an exciting year for the UK, with the London Olympics and Paralympics games, as well as the Diamond Jubilee. In their presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93), that explain how the British Council in Japan has launched a campaign named the GREAT OGIRI to promote the usefulness of learning English and exchanging culture through humor. Raymond Malvin's presentation (in Indonesian, from PKN Jakarta Vol. 8) is about Kopi Keliling, a movement (in the form of a variety of creative activities) that believes that art and creativity can make changes that are meaningful to the Indonesian people. By juxtaposing art and creativity (both in terms of work and the person behind the work) to a wider community, it hopes to promote a desire to produce art. Kopi Keliling allows talented young visual artists to display their work through events held regularly, moving from one public space to another. Although the intent is to showcase the works of these artists, Kopi Keliling understands that without an audience these works are meaningless, and so another goal is to create interaction between the audience and the art (and artist). Posters We have just one new poster on the Tumblr blog today, and it's an uncovered "blast from the past" from 2010, for Bialystok's very first PKN. Photos Today's gallery [Flickr] covers Springfield, Illinois' Vol. 6, which was held back in February. The city's next event, Vol. 8, is set for August 2 at the Capital City Bar & Grill Theatre. Calendar Tonight's (July 10) event takes the form of PKN Huancayo Vol. 10, and tomorrow you need to look to Nashville, for the city's Vol. 7.

Thank you to our supporters!

We can’t say enough how much we appreciate everyone who has supported us so far, from our wonderful volunteers to our amazing audience, each and every one of you was absolutely awesome. The whole idea of Pecha Kucha night is about promoting community co-operation, bringing together people with different skills and dreams to try and make something wonderful in this world, and we like to think we managed to do that, or at the very least made a promising start. This event was for locals, by locals and featuring locals, and we certainly couldn’t have pulled it off without the generous help of our supporters, so an extra thank you to those who gave their time and expertise to make Pecha Kucha night in Wanaka a resounding success.   Audio & video systems provided by: Entertainment Solutions http://www.entertainmentsolutions.co.nz/   Equipment hire provided by: Wanaka Party Hire http://wanakapartyhire.co.nz/   Videography provided by: Pedro Pimentel http://www.pedropimentel.net/   Photography provided by: Jakub Larysz http://www.jakublarysz.com/   Venue provided by: Rippon Hall http://theripponhall.co.nz/
