Salt Lake City got some rather nice coverage for its recent PechaKucha Night Vol. 12 from SLUG Magazine.

The PechaKucha format is brilliant. Japanese for “chit chat,” it was invented in Tokyo in 2003, and since has spread to almost 800 different locations worldwide. They call it the 20x20 format. A presenter is given an opportunity to choose 20 different slides and talk for 20 seconds about each one. This is an excellent cure for the ailment which plagues many public speeches—people talking way too long, and going on many different tangents. 

Read the full article here. Salt Lake City's Vol. 13 is set for October 13.

Post Century Credenza

Jaren Harbertson

The founder of Modern Union, a local design/build outfit that specializes in modern cabinetry and furniture. A believer in the traditions and earned experience of craftsmanship, the marks of Jaren (and Modern Union's) work are his precision loving 'god is in the details' ethos, his belief that modernism at its best represents innovation and hard won simplicity, and the ability to juxtapose raw, patina-rich materials with sleek lines and finishes creating unique, timeless, character filled, and hopefully, heirloom quality results. Modern Union will happily take on any design project that elevates details to obsessiveness.
Utah Heritage Foundation

Kirk Huffaker

As Executive Director of Utah Heritage Foundation, Kirk Huffaker is an advocate for vibrant neighborhoods and Main Streets, recognition of historic modernism, and excellence in planning and design. Since 1998, Kirk has provided assistance throughout Utah to build local preservation leadership, develop policy, and save historic buildings. He has served in the position of Executive Director of Utah Heritage Foundation since 2008.
REVOLV issue No. 02

Cale Montrone

PKN Salt Lake City Vol. 8 Presentations Robert Fishbone had an amazing experience taking part in Artsweek -- like learning how Bobby McFerrin does his vocal gymnastics -- and in this lively presentation (from PKN Salt Lake City Vol. 8), you'll get to experience part of it too. Rafi Ghanaghounian of Keep Six Exhibits shares his fun project called "Blocks," Toronto's largest scavenger hunt. Originally, the project was just between him and his son, but after doing this presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 14), he is now turning into an actual public event. PKN Barcelona Vol. 17 Posters Barcelona always comes up with great posters for its events, and here's another great example -- designed by LoSiento -- for the city's upcoming Vol. 17. You'll of course find more great posters on our Tumblr Blog. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qM4TXMBGLdY  Video PKN Orlando organizer Eddie Selover has been doing an amazing job with his series -- to a point that he was awarded a Silver Brick -- and earlier this month he participated in a TEDx event in Orlando, and spoke about his experience with PechaKucha, in a talk entitled "How PechaKucha Changed My Life."  Calendar Here's what's on tonight (October 30): PKN Eureka (Montana) Vol. 1, PKN Grand Rapids Vol. 5, PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 27, and PKN Pittsfield Vol. 4. Tomorrow night we celebrate Tokyo Designers Week with our big PKN -- aka PKN Tokyo Vol. 96 -- at the Meiji-Jingu Gaien grounds. You'll also find these three events: PKN Derby Vol. 7, PKN Mikkeli Vol. 1, and PKN Montevideo Vol. 8.

PKN Genoa Vol. 3 Presentations Zad Roumaya uses his presentation (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10) to introduce Artspace, a platform with the goal of supporting artists and their work, and more specifically covers the recently opened Dallas location. Faced with a contemporary situation characterized by daily complaints on the immobility of Genoa and of the Genoese, it arouses astonishment to rediscover in the dawn of the last century, an astonishing concentration of technological experimentation, avant-garde architecture, and urban visions. Discover this "Old Genoa" in Jacopo Baccani's presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 3). PKN Salt Lake City Vol. 8 Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for Salt Lake City's upcoming Vol. 8 (on October 22), designed by Dan Christofferson, a presenter from a previous PKN. The event itself will be part of Salt Lake Design Week.  PKE in Frederikshavn Event Report PKN Aalborg organizer Annette Scheibel has been spreading the PK word by organizing one-off PechaKucha events in nearby towns -- one of those one-off events has already resulted in the start of a regular series -- and here's a report she's shared with us on the recent "Powered by PechaKucha" event that was held in Frederikshavn.

We had an absolutely awsome one-time-try-out-PechaKucha event in Frederikshavn last night, at Maskinhallen. A full house with an enthusiastic audience and a forceful and inspiring lineup of local participants extremely well hosted by the local Jens Ole Amstrup. As an arm up, he had organized a dinner completely made of local grocery and crops -- inspired and challenged by the first participant Frank Stjerne Størup, who is a local cook with a restaurant specialising in making seafood and vegetable dinners from food grown in the area. A local jazz musician and music school headmaster talked about improvisation, creativity, and openness. Tove Varmløse shared a new way of shopping through the internet AND donating to a charity of your own choice at the same time -- a team of volounteers organizing the whole thing. A local laughter-coach demonstrated to the audience and talked about the healthy effects of laughing -- a good appetizer before the break. Local architect Finn Rasmussen is a very eager bicyclist, and he talked about the health effects of using legs for transport instead of cars -- and creating a new business through tourism at the same time. Graphic designer Anders Budolf Andersen took us through his play-with-it and evolve-design of carton boxes, and created a new philosophy on innovation -- finding out what had already been done before, and getting back to creativity! 18 year old talented artist Nanna Guldbæk talked about how she finds inspiration for her work from life experiences. We finished off by showing street artist Smelt Migs' PechaKucha video in 20X20 about why he makes art in the streets of his city, Frederikshavn. Wow, what an evening!!!

Calendar Here's what to expect tonight (October 11): PKN Salzburg Vol. 14, PKN Regensburg Vol. 10, PKN Augsburg Vol. 2, PKN Norrkoping Vol. 20, PKN Utrecht Vol. 5, PKN Omaha Vol. 16, PKN Kyiv Vol. 9, and PKN Katowice Vol. 8. Tomorrow, we have the following four events: PKN Bogota Vol. 9, PKN Longmont Vol. 8, PKN Pune Vol. 6, and PKN Seattle Vol. 39.

Maximalism In "Maximalism," designer Dan Christofferson takes us on a whirlwind tour of the works he's produced over the years, framing it through his experience as a resident of Salt Lake City, and explaining how it has affected that work. The presentation was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Salt Lake City Vol. 7.

PKN Salt Lake City Vol. 7 We shared with you photos from Salt Lake City's Global Cities Week event (PechaKucha Night Vol. 7) a few days ago, and here's also an interview with organizer Tristan Shepherd. The article is originally from the CityWeekly, but as we were having trouble loading the link, we've included the entire interview in this post. More...
