Not yet scheduled!

We haven’t scheduled our next PechaKucha Night yet, but in the meantime you can watch some presentations, look at our map to see if there are any scheduled PKNs in nearby cities, or have a look at the long list of upcoming events, to see if there’s one you can attend!


Featured Presentation

"As I'm often asked about how I find my ideas, I finally decided to write down my own vision of the creation process, which I called "The Peanut theory", because it talks about peanuts lost in space and colliding each others... Thanks to that beautiful theory, everything will become cristal clear to you, folks !" Fabien Vehlmann


Vidro Azul

@ VOL 12 ON JUL 12, 2016

Conflicting and binding medium, the glass is Sonia Costa's material. She chose this craftfor his radical property, between softness and sharpness, fragility and strength, coldness and light. The artist experiments through firing, she uses a reduced palette, looking for uncluttered style.

When Graphism Meets Words

@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

Architect and artist Ciancio Alexandre collects forgiven clichés with no known history and transforms them into brand new collages. More than a graphic work, he tries to evoke and create new stories, new emotions. 

After a 20x20 in December 2013 about the dangers of creative ideas ( http://www.pechakucha.org/users/francis-mizio ) the humorous novelist, columnist and teacher in communication Francis Mizio has embarking on a perilous exercise : improvise his 20x20 from images created by an illustrator... pictures he has not seen before projection. This challenge will probably prove that ridicule kills... or not. This can also be fine. Or not. 


 Blue-Sky Painting

@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

"I was lying on my back, near the river, my eyes staring into the deep blue of the sky. At the edge of my field of vision, I could see the rooves and chimneys of buildings, lost in the vastness and giving meaning to it. What I saw could be a way to paint."
Claude Francheteau paints contemporary and yet paradoxically classical skies.
With the help of modern acrylic paints and digital photography, depicting skies in the ancient way with a modern eye. A sincere kind of blue sky thinking." 
Claude Francheteau


Belles de bitume

@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

Poussant une charrette à bras remplie de plantes, de tisanes à déguster et de livres sur les plantes médicinales, Frédérique Soulard embarque le public de la rue à la découverte de celles que l'on nomme souvent les "mauvaises herbes". 
Les participants laissent une trace de leur balade poétique et écrivent sur le bitume le nom des espèces identifiées.
Frédérique souligne toute la promenade de contes autour des plantes et du végétal. 



@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

"My name is Marie Odile Gaultier, known as Marie Galopin. I was born in Tours. After a fairly ordinary schooling followed a training course in visual communication.
During this training, I first chose to focus on national art then later on Photoshop.
My albums were noticed due to their colours, and enabled me to collaborate with a number of illustrators and sign projects with publishing houses as Delcourt, Lombard, Casterman, Gallimard.
We worked in The ghost of the Opera by Chrisophe Gaultier, Gauguin y maximilien leroy, and on the coloring of the Radio France web doc presenting the Traviatta show at the Bastille Opéra.
This collaborative work as colorist allowed my work to be more visible in various exhibition in France and abroad.  
I love talking about my work and regulary give talks in schools.
I have just settled in Nantes and work in a co – working.
My job tends to be solitary so exchanging with others essential to me." Marie Galopin



@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

"As a designer, my daily job is to create products useful for the user. This is a short description of how design may be helpful to prevent clumsy experiences. Most of all, this is how design should be at the user’s service considering industrial issues." Jonathan Hamot 

Attention to Reality

@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

The Quinzaine Photographique Nantaise was born in 1997. Since then the festival is held every September. During a month (15 days in the early years) various exhibitions with a common theme are open to the public.

2016 will therefore be the year of its 20th anniversary.

Photography is a medium which is intimately connected to reality and a reproduction tool, but it is above all a form of language that draws its evocative power beyond words. The QPN favors this strong link to reality. The field of exploration of our festival is not disconnected from what matters in our lives.

Making meaningful programming choices, showing the plurality of expressions while drawing parallels between the works exhibited, and in the end producing a coherent and understandable project that we will enjoy sharing.

@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

Marie Maupas, choreographer and artistic director of Cie Les Quais de la Danse (Nantes), will discuss her process creation, L (es) Impromptu(s), coined as choreographic game rule and uses since, in various versions.
