Tortuguías

BY CARLA ORTÍZ AND FRANKLYN ARANA
@ VOL 9 ON FEB 10, 2012

There are many things to see and do in Panamá, and one of them is to check out the sea turtles. Carla Ortiz and Franklyn Arana talk about a foundation that rescues turtle eggs and also helps save those who were recently born. (in Spanish)

Making Pots, Sculpting Heads, and Toronto/Tokyo Share a PechaKucha Mix

Presentations
How do you make a pot? Let Jess Elofson guide you through the process, start to finish, in her presentation (from PKN Sioux Falls Vol. 1).

Betty Argenziano is a sculptor who works with clay, slip, and marble. She's also an architect, writer, painter, and photographer. As you'll quickly find out through this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 3), her model of choice is the head, and she aims to produce realistic portraits that aim to tell unreal feelings.

Posters
Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for tomorrow's PKN Panama Vol. 11, happening at the Teatro en Circulo, with a start time of 19:30.

Photos
We've mentioned it a few times on this blog, but the "PechaKucha Mix" -- an improv presentation done at events where volunteers take to the stage and present images they've never seen -- is becoming quite popular. In a fun case of seeing how different cities would handle similar images, your humble writer let PKN Toronto use his recent vacation photos (made of Instagram shots taken in Canada during the summer) for that city's Mix, and the same set was used for our Mix here in Tokyo last month. How do they compare? PKN Toronto organizer Vivien Leung shared her Mix on YouTube, and I did the same for our Tokyo version. Pictured above, the crew who took part in Tokyo.

Calendar
These are the five events on tap for tonight (October 17): PKN Istanbul Vol. 15, PKN Ornskoldsvik Vol. 2, PKN Dallas Vol. 11, PKN Stockholm Vol. 36, and PKN Miami Vol. 19. Tomorrow is marked by a city that will have its very first PKN (Townsville) and one that will celebrate its 20th (Edinburgh) -- other events include PKN Leeds Vol. 14, PKN Wakefield Vol. 7, PKN Panama Vol. 11, and PKN Edmonton Vol. 14.
