PKN Genoa Vol. 3 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. PKN Panama Vol. 11 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. PechaKucha Mix PechaKucha Mix 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.

PKN Bangor Vol. 4 Presentations In this presentation (from PKN Bangor Vol. 4), Alan Comeau is joined on stage with the cast and crew of the film The Road Back: Alan Comeau, Acadia Hospital communications officer and producer of the film; Faith Bishop, Hermon High School student and screenwriter/director of the film; Natalie Johnson, Hermon High School student and “Allie” in the film; and Lucas Holmes, Hampden Academy student and musician/composer for the film. 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 (in Spanish, from PKN Panama Vol. 9) about a foundation that rescues turtle eggs and also helps save those who were recently born. Here's a special presentation, "Listen With Your Eyes," that was done at Amsterdam's recent PKN Vol. 22, which we share in video form for reasons you'll soon see. PKN New Haven Vol. 13 Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for New Haven's upcoming -- and hopefully "lucky" -- Vol. 13, set for August 29.  Calendar Today (July 31) we have PKN Dnipropetrovsk Vol. 2, and tomorrow we kick off August with the following two events: PKN Glasgow Vol. 9 and PKN Azores Vol. 3. 

PKN Genoa Vol. 1 Presentations In this presentation (from PKN Genoa Vol. 1), Gregory Melitonov talks about his SOTTO project, that incorporates typical Italian laundry lines and t-shirts to send a message to the community at large. The Bike Kitchen is more than just a self-help bike garage where you can bring your bike and learn how to repair it yourself. As you'll learn in this presentation (in German, from PKN Augsburg Vol. 1) by Stefan Sohnle, the Bike Kitchen is in fact just like a family. PKN Rockford Vol. 2 Posters We've just added quite a few posters to the Tumblr blog, and so today instead of just highlighting one, we'll include a few of them in our daily post.

PKN Panama in the News

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xq7UUJ3Xk8Y The latest PechaKucha Night in Panama (Vol. 7) was held just a few weeks ago, and what an attendance, with almost 700 showing up to take in all of the night's presentations! And compare that to 500 at the previous PKN held in Panama. In this post is a video report that was shown on the local Channel 2 News.
