Clowns Without Borders
In our last "Presentation of the Day" for the week, we meet Bruce Macphail, the project manager for the American chapter of Clowns Without Borders. In his presentation (from PKN Washington D.C. Vol. 11) he discusses the CWB's mission to offer laughter and relieve suffering for all who live in areas of crisis, especially children.

We're trying something a bit different today, and instead of producing a few separate posts, we're creating a one-stop post with all of the day's news and interesting links. Do let us know what you think. Presentations First off, of course, comes the presentations. As we've been doing lately, we've added two new presentations: Hear Emanuele Fidone cover key aspects of architecture as he shares his works (in Italian, from PKN Catania Vol. 10), or let Peter Harris guide you through the inner workings of zen (from PKN Waterville Vol. 6). And if you've been wondering just how global our presentations are, this page should clue you in -- we have 63 cities represented, with of course new cities sending us presentations every day. Posters And you do remember about our fantastic PKN poster Tumblr, right? Every single poster we receive from our global organizers goes up there, and today's additions includes posters/flyers for PKN Coruna Vol. 6, PKN Rockford Vol. 1, PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 12, and PKN Sacramento Vol. 17. Links There's also been some great PechaKucha chatter around the net, and here are a few links that we'd like to share today (and we'll be sharing more links like this on a regular basis, so keep the coverage coming):
- "20 Reasons Why PechaKucha Is Great for You" [Marcin Retecki Photography]
- "PechaKucha Returns to Eartha Unlimited" [Columbus Underground] -- we sure love that venue
- Some great press for PKN Washington, first in the Huffington Post ("D.C.'s Search for the Next Steve Jobs & Other Artistic Pursuits") and in this piece by the Urban Times in London
Calendar Here's wishing you a fantastic weekend, and don't forget to check the PechaKucha calendar to find out what PechaKucha Night you can attend over the next few days (hint: we're in Cleveland, Ferrol, Guatemala City, Lausanne, Manizales, and Bandung tonight, and in Springfield, MO and Helsinki tomorrow).

Things are definitely calming down in PechaKuchaland in the days leading up to the start of 2011 -- the last PKN of the year was held on Christmas day in Nagoya -- but we'll be sharing lots of event reports throughout the week from recent PKNs. Above, a video report from PechaKucha Night in Washington DC Vol. 14, which was held in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden -- more details can be found on the official event page.

Washington's PechaKucha Night Vol. 13 is takes place next week (September 15), in conjunction with the AIA DC Architecture Week. The event will include a musical performance by David Schulman of Rhapsody B, and DJ Brien Watson, and you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Note that -- and something we encourage all PKN organizers to do -- one of the presentations from the PK site will be shown during the evening, in this case Gary Cheng's "Transformer Apartment."
