Durban's Popular Bunnychow Fast Food, a 13-Year-Old Artist, and Photos from Tokyo
Presentations Bunnychow is a popular Durban fast food, and it's basically a hollowed out quarter loaf of bread filled with curry. It has become synonymous with Durban and the large Indian community that lives there. In this presentation (from PKN Durban Vol. 7), Luke Comins and Chris Shappe share their appreciation for this flavourful meal. You wouldn't guess by the series of lovely images that make up this presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2), but they were all produced by 13-year-old Elizaveta Gvozdeva, who talks about the work that has come out of her art classes. Posters We have two new posters and one flyer up on the Tumblr blog today, and they are for PKN Hong Kong Vol. 12 (pictured above), PKN Salzburg Vol. 14 (and take note that Salzburg's Vol. 13 is happening tomorrow night), and PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 3. Photos We'll have more photos to share from last night's PKN Tokyo Vol. 95 taken by our official photographer, Michael Holmes, soon, but in the meantime here are two Instagram snaps to give you a feel for the event -- on the right, that's Nooka's Matthew Waldman giving his presentation. Calendar How's this for a busy Thursday, with 10 PKNs on the agenda: PKN St. Louis Vol. 10, PKN Leeds Vol. 13, PKN Logrono Vol. 7, PKN Guatemala City Vol. 2, PKN Vigo Vol. 1, PKN Santa Barbara Vol. 5, PKN Varberg Vol. 3, PKN Vladimir Vol. 8, PKN Portsmouth Vol. 12, and PKN Hanoi Vol. 5.

Innsbruck's New Culture Center, Baskets and Pots, and Jumping in Tokyo
Presentations Konstantin Ronikier is the organizer of PKN Innsbruck and in this presentation (in German, from PKN Salzburg Vol. 12) he talks about a new cultural center in the center of Innsbruck. Konstantin was in charge of renovating the previous building into a space where people could meet, discuss, and produce events. Richard Wilshusen is an archeologist, and in this presentation (from PKN Longmont Vol. 6) he explains the material culture of baskets and pots. He explores the idea that the functionality behind the basket evolved in the design of ceramic pots. Posters and flyers Today's new poster addition to the Tumblr blog comes our way from Gisborne, with the city's Vol. 9 happening this coming Friday (June 22) -- the event will take place at the Dome Cinema. Here's a peek at the new flyer series that we're launching here in Tokyo for our PKN series -- with our next event, Vol. 93, happening on June 27. The photography is by Michael Holmes, the design by Luis Mendo, and we plan on producing more flyers that follow the same "jump" motif. Calendar There's one PKN happening tonight (June 18), and it's a Vol. 1, in the city of Launceston. Tomorrow, you can look forward to the following two events: PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2 and PKN San Diego Vol. 15.
