Beauty pageants have been taking place in SA’s townships since before the 1980s. Kayamandi Beauty Pageant (KBP) uses such events to build role models and inspire youth. While most townships have been labeled as ugly and unappealing, KBP are crafting a new image and developing some inspiring faces.

andrew sam newman

After the Haiti earthquake Sam sat down on a pavement in Scotland & begged for poems for the people of Haiti. He received 139 poems in 4 days, and sold 21 copies of a book that didn’t exist. These funded a printrun of 100 copies of QUAKE and raised £500 for SOS Childrens villages in Haiti. This was the 1st of 13 PoemCatcher books and a one-year adventure.

In our working lives we see positive results from using monitoring and evaluation to develop and evolve projects, making them more effective and efficient. Why should this be any different in relationships, romantic or otherwise? The relationship MOU is an example of a tool to help keep perspective in relationships.

The Fringe is an area designated to become the Province’s design and innovation precinct. The focus of the presentation will be around the planned design phase in which all Capetonians will be invited to participate in the physical design of the area and asked to contribute to the planning of what the area needs to provide in terms of business support services in order for designers and entrepreneurs to call it home.

One thought on “PechaKucha Volume 22

  1. […] Per the recommendation of a colleague, Shannon and I decided to attend last night’s PechaKucha in Cape Town. The way it works is anyone can apply to speak at the event. You have one limitation: 20 images/slides and each slide is only shown for 20 seconds. Last night there were 9 speakers who presented ideas and projects they find interesting. We had topics including gentrification, biodiversity studies, performance arts, township beauty pageants, poetry and Tanzanian hip-hop. Here’s the lineup from last night: https://www.pechakucha-capetown.com/pechakucha-22/ […]
