PKN San Antonio Vol. 6 Presentations Linda Perez was born and raised in San Antonio. Over the course of her life, she has cleaned hominid fossils and taught secondary school in Kenya, done research at Harvard University and conducted a health care survey in the Andes Mountains, helped initiate sustainable agriculture and rural businesses in Zambia and assisted in HIV/AIDS awareness & prevention in Swaziland. Since 1993, she has overseen the development of a herd of Beefmaster cattle on her 300-acre L&M Ranch, 40 minutes south of San Antonio. Her presentation (from PKN San Antonio Vol. 6) focuses on her life as an independent, organic farmer in the heart of Texas. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Ostrava Vol. 8) contains stories about wooden buildings that were realised in the Czech Republic by Martin Rajnis and his students. The buildings are inspired by traditional dwellings found in many parts of the world, that are friendly to the environment and, for the most part, very cheap. Martin also points out the bureaucratic system that affects Czech building policies. PKN Orlando Vol. 6 Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog comes in the form of a trio of posters for the upcoming PKN that's set to happen on October 26 in Orlando -- although V6 appears on the poster, this is in fact the series' Vol. 7, and you'll find the full list of presenters on the official event page. Video Today we have a great video teaser to share for the upcoming PKN Trnava Vol. 5, which will be part of the Grape Festival, one of the biggest music festivals in Slovakia.   Calendar Today (August 22) you can catch the following two events: PKN Cairns Vol. 5 and PKN Durban Vol. 8.

Architecture in the U.A.E. and a Modern Take on the Traditional Furoshiki

PKN Tokyo Vol. 94 Presentations Anarchitect[s] is a collaboration between Jonathan Ashmore and Tarik Al Zaharna. This concept creates a platform for a collaboration between architecture and research projects in the U.A.E. In this presentation (from PKN Dubai Vol. 11), Tarik will be sharing with us the journey in realizing architectural programs, focusing on their recent project 'DXB Store'.  Kyoko and Hannah Waldron come together to present (in Japanese, with some English, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94) some of the furoshiki designs produced under the LINK collective. We also get a glimpse at how these traditional items are made. PKN Trnava Posters We have one new poster on the Tumblr blog today, and it's for a special edition PKN Trnava, which is set to take place on August 10 (a regular Vol. 5 is set for September). And although we already shared the poster for the recent PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11, here's a photo of it out in the wild: PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11 Videos Here's a short video look at a recent PKN in Guatemala City -- it was the first PKN to be held in that city.  httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYZHqV350iE Calendar We're looking at another slow summer week, and start off with no PKNs on this Monday night, but tomorrow (July 31) will see PKN Dnipropetrovsk Vol. 2.

PKN Amersfoort Vol. 6 Presentations Tim Hoover is a DJ, producer, promoter, and entertainer whose work has both a sense of humor and wonder. Hear him rap through most of his presentation (from PKN Winnipeg Vol. 9), as he shares his love of music and hip-hop -- something he can't help but want to spread to others. (in English) Ben van der Steen is CEO of Geesa, a Dutch company that has produced bathroom and toilet products since 1885, and in this presentation (in Dutch, from PKN Amersfoort Vol. 6) he tells the story of how he joined the company.

How's this for a fun video, produced to help promote a PechaKucha Night in Trnava. It still amazes us how creative all of our city organizers can be.

The Evolution of a VJ In today's presentation, "The Evolution of a VJ," Zden Hlinka talks about his humble beginnings, how his career progressed, and covers his achievements in the field of VJing over the past two decades. The presentation is in Slovak, and was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Trnava Vol. 3.

Poster for PKN Trnava Vol. 3 There are still PechaKucha Nights happening outside of our Global Cities Week, like Trnava's Vol. 3, which is set for February 29 at Artklub. The event is not on the Trnava city page yet, but should be added shortly. The lovely poster for the event was designed by Simona Cechova. Here's what organizer Samuel Boskovic has to say about the bear:

This bear of ours on the poster is waking-up from the hibernation and we are looking forward to the end of the winter and for the new opportunities during spring and summer.

Poster for PKN Trnava Vol. 2 PechaKucha Night in Trnava Vol. 2 will be held on November 30 at Artklub. Here's a look at the poster that was produced for the event, and as organizer Samuel Boskovic tells us, "the inspiration for the poster was the old water tank tower which is kind of an architectural monument of the industrial past (and present) of the city and part of the landscape." The poster itself was designed by Iva Ďurkáčová.
