HONG KONG Posts


Here's a look at the dual posters -- in English and Chinese -- for Hong Kong's upcoming PechaKucha Night Vol. 20, set for July 4, revealing another way the new branding can work. For more details on the event itself, please visit the official event page.

For this week's "City Focus" we head to Hong Kong, where the city will be celebrating its PechaKucha Night Vol. 18 on November 30 -- only 2 more until the momentous Vol. 20! For more details and the full list of presenters, visit the official event page.

Hong Kong will be joining the PechaKucha Global Night on September 20 with its Vol. 17, to be held at XXX Gallery. Visit the official event page for more info, and the list of presenters.

It's that time again -- here are the top 5 viewed PechaKucha 20x20 presentations for the month of June 2013!

 

 

 

 

First off, we have Ideapreneurs; a presentation on the development of new education methods for creatives.

Second is A Quest for Adventure: hear what it's like to ride your bicycle around the world, walk the length of the Kaveri River in India, and canoe 500 miles down the Yukon. 

In third we have Table Talks presentation Crossover Innovation, in which we hear of the design processes behind disruptive, iconic products.

Coming in fourth is Guilty Pleasures -- herein we learn that pleasures (that don't harm others) ought never make us feel guilty.

And finally, rounding out our top 5 in June is Curiosity Leads to Creativity: see how one woman's inquisitive nature has lead her down countless creative paths.

To see more fantastic 20x20 presentations, kick back for a quick six minutes and forty seconds and check out the PechaKucha WATCH page. 

Kristof Crolla goes into detail (at PKN Hong Kong Vol. 15) on his work on "Golden Moon", an installation at the 2012 Mid-Autumn Festival Lantern Wonderland in Hong Kong.

From initial design to building and execution, Crolla leads the audience through the process of creating the moon and tops the presentation off with stunning photos of the finished product. 

Cara To's unrelenting curiosity has led her through a vertitable cornucopia of disciplines in her life; from biochemistry to video game design.

In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Hong Kong Vol. 14), Cara talks about some of the projects she has taken on along her journey, as well as her determination to act and throw her doubts aside.

Welding, cutting, bending, sand-blasting, polishing, Sjors van Buyten does it all; and in this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Hong Kong Vol. 14) he elaborates on the pieces he's crafted from found objects. Sjors works primarily with metals, wood, and light -- and the results are often electrifying.

Can your happiness be measured? Can it stack up against the joys of others? Probably not, but your success sure can.

In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Hong Kong, Vol. 11) Larry Feign puts intangible concepts to statistics. If you've ever wanted to know the "simple" Formula for Success, Larry has your number.

PechaKucha has been rocking Hong Kong of late, thanks to our superstar organizers Sonia Chow, and you can read all about it in the latest issue (Spring 2013) of LOFT magazine.

You can read the article online here (it starts on page 52).


PechaKucha Night Hong Kong Vol. 14 is still about 2 weeks off, but Chinese New Year is fast approaching (Sunday, February 10th)! As 2013 is the Year of the Snake, the poster features a snake enveloping an entire elephant. We suppose this is a good thing?

Either way, from all of us at PechaKucha HQ: have a wonderful Chinese New Year and may your happiness be without limit.
