Teutonic Knights

BY MAREK CZECHOWSKI
@ VOL 7 ON DEC 28, 2011

Marek Czechowski is a traveler and researcher, and in his presentation he talks about the real history of the teutonic knights, who during the 13th century ruled the North of Poland. This is however a history that doesn't follow any school books or academic sources. This story reveals the very truth about the knights, who, according to Marek, were not able to build their famous brick castles themselves... Gaining spontaneous applause, Marek proves they had no necessary knowledge to do this, and that they had insufficient money, as well as insufficient building materials. (in Polish)

A Walk Through PechaKuched Koszalin

BY GALL PODLASZEWSKI
@ VOL 8 ON FEB 22, 2012

This presentation is by PKN Koszalin organizer Gall, and was done as part of our Global Cities Week. Here's how Gall describes it: "In my presentation I took the spectators for a walk through the well known places of the city, whose perception, though, has been modified in recent years through some young creatives. Windsurfing or bathing in the winter sea? (1-2) This is the kind of shock-feeling PechaKucha once brought to our small town. (3) Let's transform the industrial zone into a zone of culture! (4) Let's transform the 4-lanes main street into a livable public space! (7-8) Let's sweep the rubble and create meeting places! (9) Let's take over the monuments and enjoy them as people instead as politicians! (14-15) And in the last few steps, let's check out what's new in the local architecture! (17-20) On the slides 12-13 you can see the Koszalin's amphitheatre, the biggest venue in the city, which will host PKN Koszalin Vol. 9!" (in Polish)
