ON APR 14, 2016
"The work becomes a conversation about class, race, gender and appropriation."
In Building Afrotopia from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, artist Stacey Robinson illustrates how speculating black futures became paramount in his artistic practice as a response to the global displacement of Black and Indigenous people. Robinson shares recent work, beginning with his current Pan-African flag series, representing nations where Black and Indigenous populations are controlled by extreme measures. Robinson then shares works from an in-progress book, 100 Afrofuturists Practitioners, depicting people building future spaces where Black peace exists using S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art(s), and Math). Lastly, Robinson presents works inspired by the past Black Renaissance speculative Black Futures, with Afrofuturist digital collages inspired by Romare Bearden, James Denmark, Manzel Bowman, and other past and contemporary mixed media collage artists.

A Guide to Post-Racial America and Urban Renewal in Genoa
Presentations Duante Beddingfield is a local writer whose work can be found in the Dayton Daily News and on the Welcome Dayton website. With his presentation (from PKN Dayton Vol. 10), Duante hopes to help guide us towards a post-racial America, by going through the "dos" and "don'ts" of having a black friend. Beatrice Moretti and Paola Sabbion are architects from URBAN LAB. In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 1), they cover a project called the new City Urban Planning. The project involved the announcement of the Genoa Urban Plan 2010 through the publication of the Urban Lab Notebooks, and the staging of the exhibition "Genoa Today, Genoa Tomorrow" in December 2011, an extraordinary instrument of participation and opportunity for discussion. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster you see above, for PKN San Juan (in Argentina) Vol. 7. It was designed by Francisco Riveros of Mundo Estudio. Photos We'll hopefully have more to share in the coming days, but for now here's a peek (above) at what the recent PKN Innsbruck Vol. 1 looked like -- and the event poster was posted to our Tumblr blog prior to the event. Calendar Tonight (July 19) we have St. Albert's first PKN, and there's a special edition PKN in Chicago. Tomorrow, it's Tijuana's turn to host its very first PKN, while Waterville has its Vol. 8.

The Odyssey Project
"It seeks to demonstrate how artistic cooperation transcends class, racial and social barriers ... and serves as an alternative to incarceration and penalty."In "The Odyssey Project" from PechaKucha Santa Barbara Vol. 14, Ahmed Asi describes the collaborative theater process between youth from a juvenile detention facility in Santa Barbara county and undergraduate students from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Using the template of Homer's Odyssey, the participants gather on the university campus to explore the mythic elements in their lives in order to reconstruct the epic poem in their own voices. The project leads to a public performance at a local theater. Everyone on this creative journey is a hero or heroine. The project is designed to honor youth in identifying their heroic life mission and map a course of action. It employs theater arts as a strategy for inspiring life affirming choices.
