"When you step out of your comfort zone, THAT is when the magic happens, THAT is when you realize the true strength of your capabilities"
In "Even Though We're Here" from Bandar Seri Begawan Vol.4, Dragons And Pixie Dust’s self-taught special effects make-up artist Muaz Al-Rashid’s shares the story his childhood curiosity on how Jim Carey was turned into The Grinch got his creative engine running. From looking up for inspirations on YouTube to someone telling him to just do it to actually ripping himself out of his comfort zone, Muaz invites us to join him (being unafraid to do what you’re passionate about) as he brushes his way into being resourceful with what little he could work with to complete his vision.

Family is a big deal to Stefany Holland; so is letting people know how drunk driving can affect all human beings and their loved ones. One in every three people will be in some sort of drunk driving accident in their life time, and most alcohol-related car accidents that occur happen to only one car. On July 13, 2008, her family was directly affected by these very real statistics. The drunk-driving accident brought her family closer together, proving that when we pull together with our families, it makes stronger. Stefany has been passionate about sharing this story so that people can understand the real impact that drunk-driving has on us.

PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 6
PechaKucha Night in Tel Aviv sure knows how to attract an audience, with a massive 2,000 attendees packing the Hangar 11 venue for this month's Vol. 6. Organizer Anat Safran files this report. PechaKucha Tel Aviv Vol. 6 was a huge success and I would be happy to share some of our event's highlights with you. First some figures: 2000 people came to the Tel Aviv port to watch PechaKucha Vol. 6. 9 presenters showed their works. 6 days is the time that it took to sell all the tickets in advance, 2 weeks before the event. That's Anat on the left. Our first presenter was Ram Matza, who came up on stage with a curious device hanging behind his shoulders that turned out to be a small camera, one of many that Ram enjoys building and manipulating. He puts them on musical instruments during live shows and VJs the whole thing live on stage. Later that night for our after-party, DJ Schoolmaster was equipped with small cameras all over him, and the images were projected on the Hangar wall outside. Our second presenter, Guy Sagie, a talented graphic designer, showed a beautiful project of drawn typography inspired by children tales and historic events. Didi Vardi, our 3rd presenter, is a 74 year-old junk collector who builds incredible yet useless machines in his workshop. He brought one of his machines onstage, a machine that was built just for the Burning Man festival. It was actually his birthday that very night and we were happy to surprise him with a cake and a "Happy Pecha to You" song. A very surprising presentation came right after by Dr. Amiki Szold, a surgeon and tai-chi teacher. He showed 400 seconds of a laparoscopy operation accompanied by the sound of his heartbeat, and told us about his job, his feelings, his art... It was interesting to see everyone's reaction to this presentation -- after the first few seconds of shock people were mesmerized and were very touched by Dr Szold's comforting, interesting, and emotional words. We then had 400 seconds of mind-blowing images by a young graphic designer and illustrator known as Pilpeled. A variety of drawings, collages, and interactive clips with powerful music filled us all with youth energy. Architect Dr. Yossi Kori went on stage right after and showed us 20 slides of his green ecological architecture projects. You could see side by side sustainable architecture projects and electro-magnetic floating cities. It felt like a short trip to the future. The next presentation was by an Israeli duo known as Duprass who created a special piece for PechaKucha. It included a video and a soundtrack of an air compressor and girls choir. As you can imagine, it was noisy, and intriguing. Yonatan Kunda is a spoken word artist, and he created a special smart and touching text of love and anger to our city -- Tel Aviv -- that has just celebrated its 100th anniversary. The text was performed in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. Our last presenter, Kutiman, is now a very hot star since his project Thru-You got worldwide media coverage and more than 4 million views on YouTube. This talented musician had found on YouTube home-made videos of various musicians around the world, and remixed them into 7 beautiful songs. He than created a site called www.thru-you.com where you can watch his new creations as well as look at the original videos. It is an amazing revolutionary project, you just have to see it and be blown away just like we were... Well, it was an amazing evening and we are looking forward to our next one in September.

The Salaryman Project, Amazing Cakes, and 4000 in Tel Aviv
Presentations In October 2006, as he was taking photos of nature in the forest near Kawaguchiko, a salaryman with a suitcase appeared on the track. Ever since that day, Bruno Quinquet has tried to investigate the mysteries of office work in Japan through photography. He has exhibited this series -- which is the topic of his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92) -- in Japan and abroad. Last month, he launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the production of the "Salaryman Project Business Schedule 2013." These are not the cakes you are used to seeing. In this first presentation (in Italian) from PKN Pisa Vol. 1, Alessandra Pacini -- a cake designer -- shares some of the amazing cakes she's produced over the years. Cake design is an interesting form of art, in which anyone can make a professional-looking cake, with no limits to imagination -- although using only edible materials is key. Posters We have quite a few new posters up on the Tumblr blog today, including two from Kosice (for last week's Vol. 18, and the upcoming Vol. 19), a well as for PKN Okayama Vol. 14, PKN Orlando Vol. 6, and PKN Portsmouth Vol. 11 (above), which continues that city's elemental theme for the year (first was fire). And speaking of Portsmouth, here's a great video that was produced after the city's Vol. 10, that acts as a peek at that event, as well as a teaser for the upcoming Vol. 11: Photos and report What does a crowd of 4000 look like? It looks like what you see pictured above, from last week's PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 13 -- and there are more photos to see in this Flickr photoset. Also, we have the following report from PKN Tel Aviv organizer Anat Safran:We had another great PKN here at Tel Aviv, with 4000 people in the house. As usual the demand for tickets was huge and we were sold out in minutes... Me and my partner Itay were happy to host 9 presenters, all great and crazy, just the way we love them. We started the evening with a presentation by Liat Segal, who is running a studio for art and technology. Her projects are always fun and beautiful and involve music, paint and robots. Than came on stage Ofer Grunewald who is a young Bonsai artist. He shared his passion and explained the satisfaction of sculpting with a living material as trees. Mushon Zer Aviv (designer) and his wife Galia Ofri (painter) talked about their first common project that aims to illustrate wikipedia. With great drawings for esoteric articles and some very interesting questions about sharing knowledge -- these were a fascinating 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Artist and representative of the slow food movement in Israel, Rafram Hadad took us on a lovely journey in his different fields of creation, mixing visual arts and food in all middle eastern countries. A whole different experience was the one offered by brain researcher Moran Cerf, who is working in a very special lab in L.A. where experiments are made on live human brains. He can map the brain and than "read" one's thoughts or even allow handicapped people to control a robotic arm with their thoughts. Than came Ohad Zlotnik, a graduate student in visual arts, who presented his very smart project of 3D typography, with Hebrew letters that became real objects. Daniel Dover is a street artist who told us his short and so funny history trying to fit in the world of design, and what has finally brought him to do his street art interventions. Oded Ezer is a well known typographer who has presented his work in the first Tel Aviv PKN back on 2007. We were happy to invite him once again and discover his super intelligent projects. Oded told us about a typographic tattoo project, a graphic flag project, a social Skype-typo project, and more. The last show of the evening was by director Yair Kedar, who presented his current project, a documentary about Yona Wollach, one of Israel's most well known poet. His presentation ended with a live song by local singer Karolina whose big warm voice filled all our hearts with joy and emotions, with anticipation for our next PKN.Calendar Tonight (June 4) you'll want to catch PKN Stockholm Vol. 34, which we hear is going to be quite the event. Tomorrow, PKNs are happening in the following cities: PKN Louisville Vol. 8, PKN Chicago Vol. 22, and PKN Sydney Vol. 21. Please note that the PKN Hong Kong Vol. 12 that was scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed.

Report from PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 17
Here's a great event report from PKN Tel Aviv organizer Anat Safran on the city's latest event, its PechaKucha Night Vol. 17: We had another successful PKN here in Tel Aviv! It was vol. 17, and once again we were sold out with 8000 people! Yes, it's crazy. We did 4 rounds over two nights. This stretches the "15 minutes of fame" for our presenters, makes them superstars for two nights. We had some great presentations: a typographer who invented a font that combines Arabic and Hebrew in the same letter, a great experimental graphic work and a beautiful metaphor of an optimistic future. An artist who is making live animation with low tech means - paper cuts, lights and small camera. A graphic designer with interesting insights about the two biggest daily newspapers in Israel. A couple living in a circus van that uses circus as way of social activism and change by having fun. A comedian who stands on his head in various spots in the world. An artist who's building wooden dolls of all her family members and a model of her childhood house to tell the story of a family tragedy. An amazing vocal artist with a divine voice. A special guest from Berlin who's building crazy smart and useless machines. An illustrator and animator with psychedelic creations that makes you feel like you're on LSD... We got so many great reactions that made us so proud and happy to be a part of the PechaKucha experience once again.
Nothing to See Here
"This is a personal rebuttal of the notion that nothing ever happens in Whanganui."In Nothing to See Here from Whanganui Vol. 1., Matt Dutton highlights many works from any of the talented artists living in an unsuspecting New Zealand community on the North Island. Considered a place where "nothing ever happens", Dutton challenges us not to overlook the quiet town, or the contemporary, often abstract works coming from any of its highly gifted artists. Enjoy!

PKN Vientiane Vol. 4 Poster is here!
Sabaidee! We've had a summer full of rest and relaxation over here in Vientiane, so we've hit the ground running with our next PKN popping up at Timeline Cafe on Thursday, September 15 from 6pm. We've got a host of exceptional peeps presenting at this event, so we hope to see you there Vientiane! But don't get us wrong, it hasn't been all poolside cocktails and working on our tans... Over the summer Vientiane-based Lao designer Manilla Chounlamountri, has created a truly awesome poster for our upcoming Vol. 4 event. Manilla is an illustrator at heart, and while she usually draws in black and white, she didn't shy away from punchy hues for this work. We think it sums up the PechaKucha vibe perfectly: captivating, interesting, bold, and cool with just a tad of quirk thrown in! Many, many thanks to Manilla for this wonderful work. We can't wait to plaster them all over town for the community to see!
