The next PechaKucha Night in Zagreb (Vol. 8) is actually being called "PechaKucha Flowered by TBF," and the reason for that is because, as organizer Jelena Mihelcic tells us, "TBF, one of the most popular urban music bands in Croatia, playing hip hop/rap/ rock music, are going to host the evening and play music afterwords at the party." It's all set to happen October 2 at the Golly & Bossy Design Hostel, and you'll find the full list of presenters and links on the official event page. The poster was designed by Oleg Suran.

PKN Zagreb Vol. 6
PechaKucha Night in Zagreb Vol. 6 certainly rocked its outdoor venue last week, and here's co-organizer Jelena Mihelcic with a report on the evening's proceedings.
PechaKucha Night in Zagreb Vol. 6 gathered 12 presenters and around 400 people in the audience. For the first time outdoors, in the courtyard of the club Mocvara (Swamp), designers, theater and visual artists, and one scientist had their first PechaKucha experience.
Davor Jadrijević tried to explain his invention, a device for wireless energy transfer, in a very approachable way, which he also presented physically after all the presentations had finished, so that all the curious people who had additional questions could ask them directly.
Renowned theater director Ivica Buljan talked about his play Garage, Ira Payer and Tomo Ricov explained the idea behind the recent D-Day, while Marina Pirs had a very poetic and impressive presentation about Bead by Bead, the first fair trade company in Croatia. It is a company that sells hand-made jewelry from Uganda, investing 20 percent of its profits back into the community producing the jewelry. Interesting and fun presentations were staged by the designers Dario Devic and Hrvoje Zivcic, the authors of the poster for this PechaKucha Night, and a fashion designer Branka Scepanovic (ROBA) who talked about what's behind the expensive clothes they make. Kristina Lenard, Elvis Krstulović and Iva Kovac represented the visual arts, and the inevitable architects were this time represented by Goran Rako, a very well established Croatian author.
PechaKucha Night in Zagreb started off in January 2009 and was initiated and organized by the agency Bruketa&Zinic, 3LHD, Komakino and Lana Cavar. Including this one, PechaKucha Night in Zagreb has so far hosted a total of 57 presentations, with 91 presenters and 380 minutes of program that has been seen by around 3,500 spectators.
We would like to thank our supporters: AVC Zagreb, Mocvara club, Pogon - Zagreb center for independent culture and youth, Croatian Ministry of Culture, City Department for Education, Culture and Sport, AVC Zagreb, Box Packaging and Vector Design!
