More Magazine Library, a 3000-seat Venue for Koszalin, and a 'Raucous' Night in Nishinomiya
Let's take a look at what's happening in PechaKucha today. Presentations As we promised yesterday, we continue to share presentations from last Friday's special PechaKucha event at the Magazine Library exhibition. Today you can hear Antonin Gaultier talk about his new digital Tokyo fashion magazine, De Rigueur (available for Kindle), and Tokyo-based designer Ian Lynam shares some of the magazine titles that have had a big impact on him. Posters Two new posters today on our Tumblr blog, starting with the one (above) for the upcoming PKN Koszalin Vol. 9 (on May 25). You see a piece of the amazing venue where it will be held in it, and below, a better look. You'll also find the beautifully illustrated poster for PKN Barcelona Vol. 16. It's the Koszalin Amphitheatre, and it can hold 3000 spectators -- that's PKN Tel Aviv territory! Events We of course have a few new galleries of event photos to point out, and the photo above is an oldie but goodie, from PKN Beirut Vol. 8 (the most recent event in that city was last week's Vol. 14).

Here we have a report from PKN Nishinomiya organizer Brent Jones on the city's recent PKN Vol. 12:
Friday, April 13 (that's right . . . Friday the 13th) was another raucous night of creativity and fun at CUBE in Nishinomiya. We continue to attract an eclectic mix of presenters, and this beautiful Spring night was no exception. We started the evening by showing Mark Dytham’s PechaKucha Global Events presentation from the PKN website. We explained to the audience that we are locked into our set events (because our venue is a school), but that we try to promote these events as much as we can. Our first live presenter was Teruko Ashida, who introduced her organic fruit farm in Amagasaki and the events she holds there. Peter Sterlacci followed up with a lively introduction to Personal Branding. Shuji Narita came next with a humorous look at common English mistakes made by Japanese, and he was followed by Carmen Tamas and Shawn White swapping musings about the charms of Japan and Romania. Our Beer Break was followed by a PKN formatted workshop on Old School Hip Hop by Warren Decker. Natsuko Shiraishi then introduced her work with groups of indigenous Mangyan on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. The audience was then treated to the trials and tribulations of learning how to scull by Richard Miller, and Wes Lang rounded out the night with a poetic look at Unkai, or the sea of clouds that can be viewed from various summits in Japan. We again enlisted the help of several students in introducing the presenters and keeping the evening full of unexpected twists and turns, and are already looking forward to PKN Nishinomiya Volume 13 on July 6th.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQQwzUyR-Bc Here's a great video that will give you a peek at the very first PechaKucha Night held in the city of Ferrol, back in 2010 -- and you'll find all the presenters listed with links on the official event page. The last PKN in Ferrol was held in February (Vol. 6), and so it shouldn't take too long for the next edition to be announced.

Today's presentation (in Spanish), the provacatively titled "I Do Want Ugliness in My Landscape," was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Ferrol Vol. 5, and features Ergosfera talking about the quality of territories which, after being described negatively (first by the Market, as unproductive, and now by the State, as ugly), need new stories and arguments to keep development open.

PechaKucha Nights are held in all sorts of venues, and although most of them tend to be in a bar-like environement -- which we encourage, since we like PKNs to have a casual feel -- sometimes they are held in a beautiful theater, like in the case of PKN Ferrol Vol. 5, which took place in Teatro Jofre. We share a few photos in this post, but there's more to see in this blog post -- and you'll also find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. That blog post also includes a complete video recording of the evening. More...

You've seen photos of this amazing space before, but here again (above) is a look at the amazing Teatro Jofre venue that organizers of PechaKucha Night in Ferrol have been using for their events. Even better, you'll find plenty of photos from PKN Ferrol vol. 4 on this page, as well as a video recording of the entire night -- we hope to get some data for a few of the presentations so we can feature them on the PK site in the near future.

We're not altogether sure what this image was used for -- it's not a flyer, but it was produced to accompany Ferrol's PechaKucha Night Vol. 2, held in early July. What we really like is how the designer has found a way to write "Ferrol" using the official PechaKucha logo script, and also that the logo is positioned like it was the sign on that building. That's the next step for us, city-based PechaKucha centers -- that does have a nice ring to it.
