A 20x20 Lullaby, Surreal Drawn Life, and a PechaKucha Crate

Presentations Megg Evans is a Melbourne-based designer who co-founded Brolly Studios with Martin Heide and Stuart Webber. When she gave this presentation (from PKN Melbourne Vol. 19), her son Melvin was just 10 weeks old, and she brought him along and gave this beautiful 20x20 lullaby to her baby and the very impressed crowd. Fede Calandria's work could be described as a combination of art, design, and illustration. As he explains in this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mendoza Vol. 3), he finds inspiration everywhere, and likes to incorporate what he sees in his daily life, interpreting it in his own way. Posters We end the week with an explosion of posters on our Tumblr blog, with the following events being represented: PKN Guimaraes Vol. 3, PKN Memphis Vol. 1 and 2, PKN St. Albert Vol. 1, PKN Mallorca Vol. 1, and then PKN Maribor Vol. 9, which is pictured above.

Photos We like this spray painted crate we spotted here, located at the entrance of this past week's PKN Bilbao Vol. 12. Below, a look at the old school billboard entrance to the theatre where last night's PKN Winnipeg Vol. 10 was held.

Nostalgic for Kyiv, the Thought Structure of the All, and 20th Century PechaKucha

Presentations Tatiana Guryeva's presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7) is based on recollections of her childhood. You'll see the Kyiv of the 70s and 80s, or at least how it has remained in her memory, as well as Pechersk, the area where she grew up, and Podol, the area where she currently lives.Art’s task is to Save the Soul of Mankind, and that anything less is a dithering while Rome burns. Because if the Artist, who are self-selected to be able to journey into the other... if the Artist cannot find the way, then the Way cannot be Found. Adopting this Terence McKenna quote as his mantra and accidentally stumbling into what he calls "Thought Structure" through his art, blakeArt® (aka Matt Blake), with all his might and good intent, attempts to do just that: find a way for All. We are all "One" in the "Same," and he expands on that idea in this presentation (from PKN Chicago Vol. 18). Posters New on the Tumblr blog today are posters for PKN Guimaraes Vol. 3 (pictured above), PKN Springfield, Ohio Vol. 5, and PKN Cape Town Vol. 19.  We've also added a few posters and flyers from PKN Buenos Aires that we hadn't come across in the past, including the flyer you see above, for the city's Vol. 21. PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 25 happens tonight. Photos and video We have a few photo galleries to share today, including from the recent PKN Barcelona Vol. 16, which is what you see above. After the link, you'll also find a great video round-up from the event -- we sure love that "20th Century Fox" intro done PK-style.PKN Barcelona Vol. 16PKN Norwich Vol. 4 [Flickr]PKN Winnipeg Vol. 10 [Facebook] Calendar Tonight (June 26) your PKN satisfaction will come from the following two events: PKN Amersfoort Vol. 7 and the previously mentioned PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 25. Tomorrow, on top of PKN Tokyo Vol. 93, you'll find PKN Kingston Vol. 3 and PKN Providence Vol. 39.

PKN Winnipeg Vol. 13 Recap

On March 7, PechaKucha Winnipeg's 13th installment took place at the Park Theatre. We are all in agreement that this may have been one of the best ones yet! Although to be honest, we probably say that every time. Certain themes seem to evolve out of PechaKucha Nights. It's an organic thing; the presenters don't create idea cartels ahead of time. This time the ideas were diverse but kept circling back to (as one member of the audience put it) how design and visual communication can power physical and social change. The 11 presentations were all remarkable in their own ways: some poetic, some more visual, and then there was the musical finale. Our presenters were: Matt Henderson (Teacher and Activist) Andrew Yankiwski (Partner, Precursor Productions) Blair Helgason (Designer) Brian Kelcey (Writer, Speaker and Policy Consultant) John Johnston (Freelance Photographer) Nicole Barry (Co-Founder, Half Pints Brewery) Wendy Sawatzky (Artist), Matt Brooks (Graphic Design, RRC Student) Howard Gurevich (Owner, Gurevich Fine Art) Joseph Ranseth (Purpose-Driven Marketer) Erin Propp & Larry Roy (Singer/Songwriter). The GDC Manitoba Chapter is proud to present PechaKucha Night and to be part of the worldwide phenomenon. To read more about the presenters, please visit the event page at pechakucha.org. Karen Niedzwiecki, CGD has written a recap of the event on her blog, karenia. Carson Samson, CGD has also compiled notes ("snippets," he calls ’em) of each PKNWPG Vol. 13 presentation. You can read his account at DesignBusiness.ca.
