PechaKucha Night “Brno builds old town” with a solo concert by Lenka Dusilová
It is five years since the proclamation of the Year of Reconciliation – how much have we achieved in terms of preserving the memory of our city? At present several large-scale projects are being developed in and around Brno, informed by the vision of creating documentation centres, museums, meeting places and galleries linked with the major historical events that have affected our region. Our festival team, which launched the Year of Reconciliation in 2015, seeks to act as the driving force in such memory projects, reflecting our multinational past. Over one evening, we’ll present to our audiences the proposed projects including their historical contexts.
The purpose of the PechaKucha concept, originating in Japan, is to make the presentations concise so that they keep the audience’s attention. In this format, each of the presenters shows 20 slides, commenting on each of them for 20 seconds.
The following projects will be presented:
– The former jailhouse in Cejl and its transformation into a Creative Centre and Place of Memory
– the Arnold Villa – Centre of Dialogue
– the Documentary Centre of the Holocaust in Moravia
– the Mendel Greenhouse
– the church of Blessed Restituta Kafka
– the Löw-Beer & Schindler Foundation memorial in Brněnec
