An innovative plan to create Bozeman’s first co-housing neighborhood, the religious and cultural significance of human hair, and an up-close look at the impact of climate change on Baffin Island are featured at the next PechaKucha Night Tuesday, Feb. 11 and Wednesday, Feb. 12.
Bozeman’s 34th PK Night starts at 6:40 p.m. both nights at the Ellen Theatre.
Mark Owkes will describe plans to create “an old-time village,” which builds “connectedness” between neighbors; local hair stylist Micah Thornton will share her love of hair as she delves into the layers of meaning in different cuts and styles; and Jeff Shryer will tell us how his love affair for wild places took him to Canada’s northernmost territory.
In keeping with the Valentine’s Day theme, Vanessa Williamson will confess her undying love for ugly vegetables; Sunflower Phon will share how her romance with books inspired a plan to build new libraries throughout her home country of Cambodia; Molly McGuire will share her passion for grits; and Maury Irvine will share his love affair with the world’s oldest computer.
Sahara Devi returns to the PK stage to relate her own journey into the power of love and Sara and Jeff King will describe how their restoration of a rusty, mouse-infested Ford F-1 they named Frederick deepened their love for each other and for the little towns of Montana.
Other presenters include Aaron Kampfe, who grew up on a rural Montana ranch and was forced into activism because of his love for another man, and Tom Stenzel, an Aikido practitioner for more than 40 years, who will talk about the art of falling and how practice can make all the difference. (We don’t know if this applies to falling in love!)
Local funnyman and amateur sheetrock installer Ritchie Boyd will serve as MC.
PechaKucha (peh-chak-cha) offers anyone with a passion or a vision–designers, artists, inventors, architects, adventurers, entrepreneurs—an opportunity to share their ideas with the community during a fast-paced, friendly social get-together. There’s just one catch—presenters have only 20 slides x 20 seconds each, a total of 6 minutes, 40 seconds!
