BANJA LUKA Posts

PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2 Presentations Don Kratzer has lived in Japan for 20 years, and following the PK 20x20 format, he uses his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) to share what he's been up to all this time using one image for each year. In her presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2), Zofia Drut talks about her public and street art activities, that have been held in elevators, buses, markets, and any other public venue she's been able to use. PKN Banja Luka Vol. 6 Posters We have two new posters to share today on the Tumblr blog, starting with PKN Banja Luka Vol. 6, pictured above -- the event was held just over a week ago. The other addition is a second poster for the upcoming PKN Mendoza Vol. 6 -- see the lovely "moustache" edition we shared last month. Links We are often contacted by teachers and professors from around the world who are interested in using the PechaKucha format in their classes, and here's a great example of its use at the College of Charleston, and one that was inspired by the local PKN series. 

Professor Jeanette Guinn says PechaKucha in an integral part of her course, Understanding Creativity. “The PechaKucha concept stretches students to be creative and expand their writing and public speaking skills,” she says. “You just can’t achieve that with a paper and a test.”

Calendar Tonight (October 9) you can catch PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 3, and tomorrow sees PKN Hawkes Bay Vol. 4 and PKN Auckland Vol. 31. 

PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1 Presentations Williamsburg is known for its historic districts, and especially the popular Duke of Gloucester Street. In this presentation by PKN Williamsburg organizer Dale Weiss (from the city's Vol. 1), we are shown a whole other part of the city that is usually hidden behind gates. Maxim Zirin is a TV producer. Together with a reporter and a cameraman he went to Chukotka to shoot a piece about how local people hunt whales for a weekly programme on Russian's NTV. Chukotka is the northeastern extremity of Asia, in the northern part of the Russian Far East. Please note that some of the images included in the presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 10) are graphic. PKN Nashville Vol. 7 Posters We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with the 7-11 inspired example that you see above, for tonight's PKN Nashville Vol. 7 -- held on 7/11, get it? Also up today are posters/flyers for PKN Kansas City Vol. 11, PKN Cape Town Vol. 17, PKN Warsaw Vol. 6, and PKN Banja Luka Vol. 1. PKN Marseille-Provence Vol. 19 Photos We have two photo galleries to share today, the first for this past Saturday's PKN Marseille-Provence Vol. 19, which also marked the series 5th anniversary -- which explains why the crowd is holding a celebratory candle in the photo above. We had a tiny peek at Mallorca's Vol. 1 last week, but today we have a more complete gallery to share. 

Calendar As we mentioned earlier, PKN Nashville Vol. 7 is happening tonight, and then tomorrow you can look forward to a packed evening: PKN St. Louis Vol. 9, PKN Regensburg Vol. 9, PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 2, PKN Wakefield Vol. 6, PKN Galway Vol. 7, PKN Blue Hill Vol. 4, and PKN Kyiv Vol. 8.

PKN Tokyo Vol. 92 Presentations A Bangor native with a passion for weird and creative things, Chris Pierce has been a star "Dungeon Master" -- the person who directs a session of a role-playing game -- at the annual SnowCon Gaming Convention in Orono for the past 4 years. His enthusiasm and love of tabletop gaming is addictive -- and shines through in this presentation from PKN Bangor, ME Vol. 4 -- and he’s been known to convince many a "noob" to sit in on a game of Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow. In this presentation (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92), architects Daisuke Sugawara and Masayuki Harada describe a reconstruction project they've been working on, to help rebuild in the Tohoku region. As you'll see, they've been trying to rebuild villages, to keep the community together. PKN St. Louis Vol. 9 Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, one for next month's PKN St. Louis Vol. 9 (pictured above) and one for the upcoming PKN Moscow Vol. 19 (it's not listed on the official site yet, but it should be added soon).  http://www.flickr.com/photos/pechakuchanight/sets/72157629994486034/ Photos For the past couple of days we've been sharing coverage of specific events, and so today we catch up on quite a few photosets that we've been adding to our Flickr account. Pictured above, PKN Koszalin Vol. 8.

Calendar Tonight (June 7) sees PKN Eindhoven Vol. 2, PKN Moncton Vol. 5, and PKN Utrecht Vol. 4, while tomorrow night (Friday) you can look forward to the following two events: PKN Bahrain Vol. 5 and PKN Cagliari Vol. 3. 

PKN Athens Vol. 3 Presentations Recorded at PKN Gibsons Vol. 2, it's time to pack you bags and accompany Coralie Swaney has she takes you on a tour of New Zealand, the Tauiwi (non-Maori) way. Zissis Roubos is an Athens-based actor and director, and in this presentation (in Greek, from PKN Athens Vol. 3) he makes a case for improving the relationship between people and dogs, illustrating how we can better live with them. PKN Hamilton Vol. 10 Posters New today on our Tumblr blog are the two posters (with art by Gary Venn) that were produced for tomorrow night's PKN Hamilton Vol. 10 -- an outdoor event that got postponed earlier due to rain -- and the poster for the very first PKN in Launceston. PKN Beirut Vol. 12 Photos Today's collection of photo galleries from PechaKucha Nights the world over. Pictured above, PKN Beirut Vol. 12.

PKE in Mygdalhus One of the links above is to a gallery of photos for a special PechaKucha event that was held in the town of Mygdalhus, and here's PKN Aalborg organizer Annette Scheibel -- who was behind the event -- with a report on how it all went.

The PechaKucha event in Mygdalhus here in Denmark on May 23 went splendid! Aproximately 40 people attended the small venue -- the very active art-gallery Mygdalhus is driven by the artists themselves, and serves as a community house as well. Summer has hit Denmark, and we gathered the PechaKucha participants outside in the sun for a cosey network dinner organised by the gallery people After an introduction to what PechaKucha is, Claus Gajhede talked about his passion -- he organises adventure role-plays in the woods for children and for adults, and he explained passionately how role-playing can release a lot of potential in people's minds by playing parts, getting into storytelling, and just spending time in nature by the fire or doing all sorts of tasks. Street artist, illustrator, and computer play designer Lars Pank talked about evolving his art and the many layers of connecting different kinds of expression and storytelling through recognizable forms. Architect/artist and art gallery manager of the gallery in the lighthouse of Hirtshals (located beautifully by the ocean on the west coat) Søren Friis talked about his work, sources of inspiration through a long life work with geometric forms and light, and collaborative work on a big sculpture/installation at Aalborg's harbour with a Danish poet called Peter Laugesen. Art gallery owner Jens Guldsmed Thomsen made a very poetic speech about the meeting between art and viewer. After the break, artist Niels Fabæk presented the Nordjylland and Berlin-based art-streamer project CITY-LIFTING, and German jewelry artist Lioba Maria Solga shared her passion for tango with a short introduction speech, and then she danced to music and slides just changing colours -- with a broom!!! As funny, passionate, and unexpected people are, so can PechKucha show the variety of the human mind. Anders Budolf Andersen, a graphic designer, has tried to develop a graphic reward system for doing tedious tasks to make them joyful to do and shared them on a website and blog for free download. Finally, project manager Nikkie Dahm Breinholt told us about her ideas for BUNKERLOVE, an art-festival project in the leftover war bunkers from World War 2, located on the beaches of the west coast.

Calendar Tonight (May 29) sees PKN Saint-Etienne Vol. 9, while tomorrow includes the following four events: PKN Providence Vol. 38, PKN Jersey Vol. 1, PKN Tokyo Vol. 92, and PKN Hamilton Vol. 10. 

Poster for Banja Luka Vol. 5 Banja Luka's PechaKucha Night Vol. 5 took place this past Saturday, but we still wanted to share the poster that was produced for the event, which interestingly enough shares a retro motif with Waterville's recent poster, courtesy of that funky television set.

PKN Banja Luka Vol. 4 Banja Luka's PechaKucha Night Vol. 4 was part of the Global Cities Week, and here are a few photos to give you a taste of what the event was like. You'll also find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. More...

PKN Banja Luka + Global Cities Week Banja Luka had its Global Cities Week event last night -- as part of its PechaKucha Night Vol. 4 -- and although it's now over, we still wanted to share the poster that was produced for the event. We'll hopefully have some photos to share as well.

Poster for PKN Banja Luka Vol. 3 PechaKucha Night in Banja Luka Vol. 3 was held just a few days ago, and here's a look at the poster that was produced for the event -- nicely packaged brains.

Poster for Banja Luka Vol. 2 Banja Luka's new poster is so nice, they made it twice (in two varied color schemes, which we've both included in this post), which is fitting since it's for the city's PechaKucha Night Vol. 2. It all happens November 11 at Dom Omladine. Poster for Banja Luka Vol. 2

PKN Banja Luka Vol. 1 As we mentioned the other day when we shared the poster, the Bosnian city of Banja Luka recently held its very first PechaKucha Night, and as you'll see from the shots we've included in this post, it was held in a beautiful outdoor setting. All photos were taken by Vanja Torbica. More...
