Design Authenticity in Miami
PechaKucha Night in Miami is readying for a special edition event, in collaboration with the Hospitality Design Boutique Exposition & Conference. You should always be yourself and that same authenticity goes for the spaces we live in. Does your bedroom look like a confessional? Is your white loft space ready for a gastric bypass surgery? It’s time to explore this idea of Design Authenticity… Pecha Kucha Miami continues to weave itself into the international creative and cultural fabric with its latest Hospitality Design Boutique Exposition & Conference collaboration. Pecha Kucha: Design Authenticity will feature eights presenters sharing their perspectives from international research, cutting edge technology, the humanities, social responsibility, and ecology. The event takes place September 15 (13:00-14:00) at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

PKN Miami in the News
As we previously posted, this month's edition of PechaKucha Night in Miami was held in collaboration with Art Basel Miami Beach, and organizer Carl Hildebrand -- the man who dares you to pet his Kucha -- sends in some press coverage the event garnered. First, head to page 98 of 944 Magazine for a mention of the event, and then Art Newspaper features a closer look -- we've included a scan of the article, but you can see a PDF of the entire issue here (the article is on page 2). The image at the top of the post has nothing to do with PKN, but leads off 944 Magazine's "Artform" section, and we just really liked it.
PKN Miami + Haiti
Miami will be joining in on the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" with an event on the 20th, taking place at The Wolfsonian-Florida International University, from 16:00 to 18:00. We're including the press release from organizer Carl Hildebrand, for more details. PECHA KUCHA GLOBAL DAY FOR HAITI TO BE HELD AT THE WOLFSONIAN–FIU FEBRUARY 20, 2010 Global Conference Will Be Streamed Live From 276 Cities Around the World Miami Beach, FL (February 10, 2010)—In a matter of seconds, thousands of lives and dreams were destroyed in Haiti on January 28, 2010. Following the tragedy, aid came from many quarters, in all shapes and forms. On Saturday, February 20 from 4-6pm The Wolfsonian–Florida International University will join the PechaKucha global community and the Miami Chapter of Architecture for Humanity (AFH) to assist in the rebuilding of Haiti by taking part in a continuous 24-hour edition of PechaKucha Night. PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo on February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and showcase their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. Kicking off the series of events at the SuperDeluxe in Tokyo, where PechaKucha was first conceived seven years ago, the presentation wave will travel eastward, with cities presenting one after the other. Crossing all times zones and cultures, the events will be streamed live online and then finish in Tokyo the following day. Presentations are already being prepared, some intended to offer hope and encouragement through stories of past disaster relief projects; others as simple inspiration by showing the power of creative thinking. All of the 2,000 presentations generated from the one-day event—in what could be the world’s biggest single-day globally distributed conference—will be posted on the PechaKucha website, where visitors will also be able to make monetary donations to the project. In organizing this event, PechaKucha intends to not only raise funds through pledges from host cities and contributions from individuals, but also illustrate the power of innovative minds, creative passion, and most of all, sharing ideas for change and sustainability. The event, which takes place at The Wolfsonian, is co-presented with PechaKucha Miami and AFH. There is a minimum ten dollar donation per person requested and all proceeds will go to AFH’s Earthquake Reconstruction in Haiti project. AFH operates globally, and was instrumental in getting projects built after the Indian Ocean tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. The design costs for the new buildings in Haiti have been already covered so all donations will go directly toward the construction of much needed schools, health clinics and community structures. For more information about the event, visit http://www.pecha-kucha.org/pechakucha-for-haiti About PechaKucha PechaKucha was conceived in Tokyo in February 2003 by architects Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein as an event where young designers could meet, network and show their work in public. Over time, it has evolved into a massive celebration of creativity, with events regularly being held in over 270 cities including Miami. Last year, more than 6,000 presentations were hosted at over 600 PechaKucha events. Drawing its name from the Japanese phrase for the sound of conversation ("chit chat"), the PechaKucha format is simple—20 images x 20 seconds—and designed to keep presentations concise and moving at a rapid pace.

Tuesday, July 30, PechaKucha Miami in partnership with the Miami Design District, is hosting "Design to Collide," where five presenters will explore the concepts of space: whether it be occupying, traversing, or straight up crashing into it. People are invited to communicate, come together, and physically run into one another as the initiative's speakers tackle issues of collision and intersections in the realms of race, street art, media, design, and the pedestrian sidewalks of Miami. Each speaker will have six minutes and 40 seconds to present. It will be Hildebrand's 22nd curated PechaKucha Night, having hosted 160 participating speakers to date. Read the full article here.
