Pecha Kucha Birmingham vol 12
Tuesday 15th March 2016
Pecha Kucha Birmingham teamed up with the ReThink Media conference for the first of our 2016 events, warming up the delegates the night before.
Our PK Speakers!
Seven lovely people shared their ideas, passions and interests to a friendly and receptive crowd. Here’s the videos of their talks.
Rocio Carvajal, a Pecha Kucha veteran from Mexico, is an author, educator, blogger, baker and researcher of gastronomic heritage. Her talk is titled “The language of food: Bread stamping in colonial Mexico” and will look at how the codes embedded in and on food tell a story of the moral, economic, ethical, religious and even political views of its time.
Pete Ashton is an artist who works with cameras, and occasionally makes photographs with them. He’s a Birmingham Open Media fellow and is current developing “What If..? Cameras”, image-capturing devices which might exist in alternative realities where the DSLR and cameraphone don’t dominate.
Tim Stimpson represented Bold Text Playwrights, a collective of 8 playwrights from the West Midlands region. He also writes for The Archers. He talked about how they got together to connect with our regional audience and give them new and exciting theatre and how there’s still lots more to do.
Zoe Partington is a disabled artist who uses her practice to challenge stereotypical thinking in visual art. Her talk is on re-framing visual media so you don’t exclude the excluded. How do we transfer iconic images and visual information into descriptive words so they have meaning for all?
