I run a bi-monthly series of short talks with an emphasis on inclusiveness and community.

The format of the Pecha Kucha talk (20 slides, 20 seconds on each) encourages an energetic and informal atmosphere. I work with this form to give a platform to participants including those who may not have confidence or experience with public speaking.

Topics to date have included climate change, sculptural ceramics, traditional tool making techniques, lines, mushroom death-suits, ecology in arts education, websites about sheep by local kids, and building dry-stone walls.
