Kopi Keliling

@ VOL 8 ON APR 26, 2011

Kopi Keliling is a movement (in the form of a variety of creative activities) that believes that art and creativity can make changes that are meaningful to the Indonesian people. By juxtaposing art and creativity (both in terms of work and the person behind the work) to a wider community, it hopes to promote a desire to produce art. Kopi Keliling allows talented young visual artists to display their work through events held regularly, moving from one public space to another. Although the intent is to showcase the works of these artists, Kopi Keliling understands that without an audience these works are meaningless, and so another goal is to create interaction between the audience and the art (and artist).

PKN in Culture Magazine

PechaKucha Night gets some nice coverage in the June issue of Culture Magazine -- love that 2-page spread! The magazine can be viewed online, with the article appearing on pages 54-55 (108-109 in the viewer).



Today's "Presentation of the Day" will have you standing on your head and spitting nickels (or, maybe just the standing-on-your-head part).  Chris Kirkland runs an art-related online business (Art Web) here in Tokyo, but even more interesting are the gravity-defying poses that he tends to strike when he's out and about -- and we're talking out and about on a global level. You won't have to invert your body to view his presentation from PKN Tokyo Vol. 90, which is aptly titled "Headstanding", so have a look.   


Special PKN in Stockholm

Next week's PKN Stockholm Vol. 38 is not just any old PechaKucha Night.

Confessions of a culture junkie: Pecha Kucha Maastricht makes the grade

  By Susan Schaefer  I’ll admit I’m a culture junkie who until June 20, 2009 found the culture seen in Maastricht, well – politely boring, lacking an edge. Plenty of highbrow art and culture but not much of what I call ‘smart brow’ – that place where edgy meets elite. I have a confession – I am a culture junkie with a string of arts and culture leadership in my pedigree: I am the founding publisher, editor and reporter of the South Street Star, the first arts and culture weekly newspaper to cover the hot and happenin’ SoHo scene in my hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, where I also founded the Club Bay-Root, an original act nightclub, edited of the first ‘What’s Happening’ art and culture listings pages for New York newspaper, the Aquarian Weekly, and founded of the first women’s poetry festival while fronting my own poetry troupe, the Star Bards (we had a fan following well before poetry had ‘slams’!). Later, as the chair of the public policy committee for the Greater Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce in Minnesota, I founded the first ever business task force to study the impact of the creative class on our city. I’ve lived in Maastricht for the past five years and have been concerned with the strength of the city’s bid for European Capital of Culture city in 2018. Ah, but then a friend took me to a Pecha Kucha night and Maastricht and its surrounding “Euroregion” area shone as a wholly new sphere in my celestial imagination. It’s not that Maastricht invented this night. Far from it. Pecha Kucha Night was born in Japan 2003 as a place for designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Pecha Kucha, Japanese for the sound of conversation, is a fast paced, entertaining and informative format now running in 210 cities world wide, allowing each presenter 20 images at 20 seconds each (totaling 6 minutes and 40 seconds) to present original thought, ideas, concepts, and the like. Some presenters are literally ‘pitching’ their wares (rather than finding a gallery or the like to showcase them) while others intend to shock, stimulate or entertain. No matter the goal, the design and pace of this evening truly arouses passion. The hosts, of Pecha Kucha Maastricht: Pierre Buijs, Martijn Kagenaar and Jean-Paul Toonen have put their individual spin on this international event by filming and streaming the video on their own website. The presence of a multi-media crew adds a dash of panache and credibility to the event. With the brass ring of capturing the honor of hosting Europe’s Capital of Culture in mind, Pecha Kucha Maastricht features the artists, designers, performers, thinkers and tinkers who defy the city’s more staid image. For me, it revealed an intriguing sub-cultural literati from the too often unseen Maastricht cultural scene. Bravo! To learn more about the Speakers from June 20th simply click onto their website . My personal favorites from June 20th were the soft spoken but deeply sincere Jeroen Vinken, Art upon Fabrics, Lonneke ten Hooven,Food Seduction, a culinary poet, and space cadet, William Willems, whose Flower Bombing stole the show. See for yourself why Maastricht may indeed come up roses for its cultural quest. by Susan SchaeferSchaefer Communications, LLC   Photo: Audience, Pecha Kucha Maastricht (Photo: courtesy of Bert Janssen Photography (Maastricht)
