BY BRAM KNOL

Advocacy through Animation

BY NEIA OMER
@ VOL 29 ON MAY 22, 2016

"When you educate a man, you educate an individual, but when you educate a woman, you educate a generation."

In Advocacy through Animation from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Vol. 29,  Neia Omer tells her story. Animation is a inclusive medium when one is trying to reach a large subset of individuals. What do you do and where do you start if you know absolutely ZERO things about animation? What is your subject matter? Neia Omer's story is a personal journey, a personal goal, a family legacy, and one of animation being the key to her brand of advocacy.

Rethinking Design, Some Animation Love, and the Aalen Poster Explosion

Presentations Doreen Toutikian thinks that design can change the world for the better, and that's what she hopes to achieve with her "Rethinking Design Through Cross-Cultural Collaboration" project -- see her describe it in this presentation from PKN Beirut Vol. 13. Sebastian Alvarez loves animation, and that could help explain how he ended up becoming an animator. He uses this presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 14) to describe the main principles behind animation, and shows how all animated forms (2D, CG) can be used to tell stories in original and creative ways. Posters We found this Facebook gallery of posters for Aalen's past PKNs, and so have added a few of them (the ones we'd never seen before) to our Tumblr blog -- and that's the one for PKN Aalen Vol. 2 you see pictured above. We've also added the poster for this week's PKN Portland, Maine Vol. 19 -- next up for the city is the momentous Vol. 20! Photos Today's photo galleries, as well as an event report.

Learning About Animation, Kyiv's Iconic Architecture, and "Hearting" Parks in San Diego

Presentations Daniel Muñóz is a character animator, and in this presentation from PKN Miami Vol. 14 he explains the main principles and techniques required to produce animation work that manages to suck viewers in. Oleg Zhary is a photographer who lives and works in Kyiv, and in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7), he gives us all a stunning photographic tour of the capital of Ukraine through its iconic objects. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster above, for the upcoming PKN San Diego Vol. 15. Here's more from PKN San Diego organizer Leslee Schaffer on the poster, as well as the event itself:We are holding #15 at a venue in which we are hosting an exhibit for the next two weeks, called Orchids, Onions & Opportunities, an offshoot of our Orchids & Onions program. The exhibit strives to accomplish a lot of things; mostly, true to the mission of SDAF (and why PKN is such a great fit for SDAF) to raise awareness and encourage practical discourse about matters relative to our build environment. It’s focus is on San Diego’s civic spaces, and lack thereof. We usually don’t theme our PKNs, having found that an organically curated event keeps things interesting and works quite well for us. This time, because of the exhibit, and other complementary events we decided to offer Making the Case for Public Space as a theme, and keep it interesting by presenting a range of perspectives on the matter. As fro the event flyer, we are blessed with the support of someone we believe to be one of the most inspired artists/designers ever here in San Diego. Her name is Terri Beth Mitchell. You have already posted a couple of her PKN SD flyers on your site, and we thought this one deserved special attention. Photos We have a couple of photo galleries to share with you today.
