PKN Kyiv Vol. 7 Presentations By day, Monique Bouchard is a graphic designer and communications director who lives in Bangor's Old Town with her husband and son, but on weekends -- as she reveals in this presentation (from PKN Bangor, Maine Vol. 4) -- she travels back in time where she is... Aneleda Falconbridge, Bard of Kings. In Vladimir Geiko's presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7), he covers the injection of revolutionary ideas in the architectural appearance of Kyiv, and introduces us to the most advanced building technologies. PKN Winnipeg Vol. 10 Posters New on our Tumblr blog today is the poster for tonight's PKN Winnipeg Vol. 10 (pictured above), as well as a poster for Saturday's PKN Katowice Vol. 8. Below, a look at the poster for the upcoming PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 25. PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 25 Calendar As we mentioned yesterday, it's a big night of PKNs (June 21) -- Thursday does seem to be the most popular day for PKNs -- and here are the 9 events taking place: PKN Hilversum Vol. 2, PKN Norwich Vol. 4, PKN Raleigh Vol. 11, PKN Pittsburgh Vol. 12, PKN Bemidji Vol. 13, PKN Vancouver Vol. 22, PKN Rotherham Vol. 1, PKN Winnipeg Vol. 10, and PKN Bilbao Vol. 12. Tomorrow, look for these events: PKN Zilina Vol. 19, PKN Sendai Vol. 2, PKN Miami Vol. 16, PKN Gisborne Vol. 9, and PKN Seattle Vol. 37.

PKN Curitiba Vol. 1 Presentations In a culture where robots are everywhere -- whether as a toy, in an industrial setting, or as a movie villain -- it's good to have someone like DJ Sures, CEO, roboticist, and the visionary behind EZ-Robot. Watch as he shares (from PKN Calgary Vol. 12) his passion for robots, particularly the ones that are easy to control. With "The Art of Communication" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Michelle Thomé fully embraces the 20x20 format -- specifically, the numbering -- as she covers effective and efficient ways of speaking in public. PKN Bahrain Vol. 5 Posters We've got a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today: the proper poster for PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1 (we shared the flyer a week or two ago), PKN Kingston Vol. 3, PKN Katowice Vol. 7, and the poster for tonight's PKN Bahrain Vol. 5, pictured above. PKN Bahrain organizer Mohammed Jannahi adds a few details for that poster:
The poster is designed by Bahraini designer Muna Yateem, who recently launched her brand HARAKA (a common word used by Bahrainis which means to wear or do something with swagger). The idea behind the poster is making fun of Bahrainis and their reaction when they hear and pronounce PechaKucha, some find it very difficult and its even funnier when elder people try to say PechaKucha. The great thing about this parody is the fact that PechaKucha has an audience from all age groups and the word itself makes it "special" in Bahrain.
And although not a poster, here's a look at the new logo for PKN Seoul -- the series has been on hiatus for quite a few years now, but is about to relaunch this summer. PKN Seoul PKN Nara Vol. 2 Photos We've got another fresh batch of photo galleries from around the web, and if you missed the live streaming of the recent PKN Edmonton Vol. 13, you can still watch the video here, courtesy of the Edmonton Journal. Above, the scene at PKN Nara Vol. 2. Links and press A pair of links (that second link is also an invitation to read more interviews with PKN Birmingham's presenters), as well as some press coverage. Below, a scan of recent coverage for Jersey's first PKN from the Jersey Evening Post. Jersey Evening Post Calendar After a rather busy week, the PKN network slows down a bit over the weekend. Tonight (June 8) you can catch PKN Cagliari Vol. 3 and PKN Bahrain vol. 5, and then tomorrow night (Saturday) look to PKN Cancun Vol. 5, an event that was supposed to happen last month, but got postponed due to bad weather (yes, you guessed it, it's an outdoor event).

PKN Katowice + Global Cities Week Katowice will take part in our Global Cities Week, with its PechaKucha Night Vol. 6 happening on February 23 at Kato Bar. You can check back later on the official event page to see the list of presenters as it gets finalized. As organizer Miroslaw Okonski tells us, the "space ship" pictured on the poster refers to one of the city's most well known buildings, the Spodek (and here it is on the city logo).

Poster for PKN Katowice Vol. 4 Here's a look at the poster produced for the upcoming PechaKucha Night in Katowice Vol. 4 -- details are up on the poster, and the event page should be up on the site shortly.

Poster for PKN Katowice Vol. 3 PechaKucha Night in Katowice Vol. 3 is happening a week from today, on June 10 at Archibar -- you'll find more details on the PKN Katowice Facebook event page.
