Mark your calendars, September 20th will be a special Pechakucha evening - Global Night: Hidden Heroes. We'll be joining 100s of PechaKucha cities around the world for Global PechaKucha Night.
The idea with this Global Night is to give us a chance to celebrate our city! We're not saying all of the presentations need to follow this theme, but it's a good opportunity to dig into our community, and give those "Hidden Heroes" a chance to shine. So we want to invite people that have something interesting to say and share about the place we call home. People that don't normally get a chance to tell people what they do, but have an interesting story to tell. Mayor, planners, artists, architects are welcome too.
We are looking for up to 10 presenters for the evening and we will be following the 20x20 format. (20 slides (mostly pictures) that advance automatically every 20 seconds) Which means you have 6:40 to tell your story. It's really a lot of fun
So send your presenter/presentation ideas to me.

PKN Milwaukee Vol. 5
Attendance may have been lower due to the summer holidays and local festivals, but this week's PechaKucha Night in Milwaukee Vol. 5 boasted some of the best presentations yet. Organizer Jon Mueller reports:
Todd Sattersten talked about the future of the book -- what will we call that type of content, and what forms will it take. Matt Abbondanzio talked about changing perspectives and how product design affects our lives. DeAnna Radaj talked about how choices one makes in selecting cake, clothing, and decoration design (for entertaining) can have a major effect on the experience people have. Ron Faiola talked about his hotel door hanger collection (this was really hilarious) and commented on how these communicate strange messages to both guests and service workers at the hotels. Chris Stutzki talked about the amazing projects his company has been involved in designing structures made of glass, and the use of glass within architecture. Milan Zori talked about being the fourth most famous person from Steubenville, OH (another hilarious presentation), and Ben Turk talked about a communist perspective in performing revolutionary theatre. Wow, what a night!
