Condividi L’arte

BY MICHELA BONIFACIO
@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

10 years after the foudation of Musei di Strada Nuova, Palazzo Rosso gives his visitors a free wi-fi connection. Musei di Strada Nuova are now asking to all visitors to take pictures inside and share them on the social media. The project Condividi l’Arte wants to communcate this new aproach: it will be allowed to take pictures of the buildings and their inner treasure. The Major of Genoa, Marco Doria, took his own selfie and he shared on twitter with #selfiealmuseo. This hashtag was used from teens of people to share selfie. Utopia Pirata, the creator and owner of this idea in Genoa, is now looking for other Museum involvement to share arts and to make culture social.

From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines

BY BART KNOLS
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

"How many gems of scientific discovery are out there, published in articles, that we don’t know about?"

One of the goals of scientific research should be the improvement of the human reality. But have we created a world in which the journey from discovery to society is so exhausting that it deters academics from embarking on it? And if so, can we do something about it?

In "From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, Bart Knols idiscusses how scientists need to better communicate with those who are outside their field in order to contribute to society's development.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, October 10th, 2016.

The Teacher Who Learned to Listen

BY MARK KAWAKAMI
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

"Teaching isn’t just about bestowing substantive knowledge to students. It’s about teaching them and giving them experiences that Google can’t."

It is easy to grasp the concept that communication is a two-way street but how many of us really put the theory into practice? How easily do we fall on the default of just trying to put our point across, specially if we think about education?

Mark Kawakami is passionate about teaching and also describes himself as a failed comedian. In The Teacher Who Learned to Listen from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, he shared what conclusion he came to over the years of teaching.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2016.

Robots for All, the Art of Communication, and Bahraini Visuals

Presentations In a culture where robots are everywhere -- whether as a toy, in an industrial setting, or as a movie villain -- it's good to have someone like DJ Sures, CEO, roboticist, and the visionary behind EZ-Robot. Watch as he shares (from PKN Calgary Vol. 12) his passion for robots, particularly the ones that are easy to control. With "The Art of Communication" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Michelle Thomé fully embraces the 20x20 format -- specifically, the numbering -- as she covers effective and efficient ways of speaking in public. Posters We've got a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today: the proper poster for PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1 (we shared the flyer a week or two ago), PKN Kingston Vol. 3, PKN Katowice Vol. 7, and the poster for tonight's PKN Bahrain Vol. 5, pictured above. PKN Bahrain organizer Mohammed Jannahi adds a few details for that poster: The poster is designed by Bahraini designer Muna Yateem, who recently launched her brand HARAKA (a common word used by Bahrainis which means to wear or do something with swagger). The idea behind the poster is making fun of Bahrainis and their reaction when they hear and pronounce PechaKucha, some find it very difficult and its even funnier when elder people try to say PechaKucha. The great thing about this parody is the fact that PechaKucha has an audience from all age groups and the word itself makes it "special" in Bahrain. And although not a poster, here's a look at the new logo for PKN Seoul -- the series has been on hiatus for quite a few years now, but is about to relaunch this summer. Photos We've got another fresh batch of photo galleries from around the web, and if you missed the live streaming of the recent PKN Edmonton Vol. 13, you can still watch the video here, courtesy of the Edmonton Journal.
