Let's take a look at what's happening in PechaKucha today.

Today you can hear Antonin Gaultier talk about his new digital Tokyo fashion magazine, De Rigueur (available for Kindle), and Tokyo-based designer Ian Lynam shares some of the magazine titles that have had a big impact on him. Posters Two new posters today on our Tumblr blog, starting with the one (above) for the upcoming PKN Koszalin Vol. 9 (on May 25).

Friday the 13th) was another raucous night of creativity and fun at CUBE in Nishinomiya. We continue to attract an eclectic mix of presenters, and this beautiful Spring night was no exception. We started the evening by showing Mark Dytham’s PechaKucha Global Events presentation from the PKN website. We explained to the audience that we are locked into our set events (because our venue is a school), but that we try to promote these events as much as we can. Our first live presenter was Teruko Ashida, who introduced her organic fruit farm in Amagasaki and the events she holds there. Peter Sterlacci followed up with a lively introduction to Personal Branding. Shuji Narita came next with a humorous look at common English mistakes made by Japanese, and he was followed by Carmen Tamas and Shawn White swapping musings about the charms of Japan and Romania. Our Beer Break was followed by a PKN formatted workshop on Old School Hip Hop by Warren Decker. Natsuko Shiraishi then introduced her work with groups of indigenous Mangyan on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. The audience was then treated to the trials and tribulations of learning how to scull by Richard Miller, and Wes Lang rounded out the night with a poetic look at Unkai, or the sea of clouds that can be viewed from various summits in Japan. We again enlisted the help of several students in introducing the presenters and keeping the evening full of unexpected twists and turns, and are already looking forward to PKN Nishinomiya Volume 13 on July 6th.Calendar As we mentioned yesterday, tonight (May 15) you can look forward to PKN Helsingborg Vol. 8, and then tomorrow night (May 16) Wagga Wagga will be hosting its PKN Vol. 6.


PechaKucha Night Vol. 1 in Tegus

Greetings from Tegucigalpa, or we locals call it, Tegus! In 3 very short weeks we will be launching the first PechaKucha Night ever in our Central American country of Honduras. We have just revealed our amazing poster designed by the very talented designer Alicia Medina, a cool lady whose experience includes illustration, branding, and art direction among other things. The poster design is based on popular local handicrafts that are a symbol of Honduras - handpainted clay roosters in bright, happy colors.  During this first volume of PechaKucha Tegus we'll be sharing stories from chefs, yoginis, actors, film directors, artists, street artists and even beer brewers. It's bound to be a vibrant mix of ideas and interesting people on this warm summer night.  We'll keep you all posted on how our very first night goes.

8000 at PKN Tel Aviv!

The biggest PechaKucha Nights are always held in Tel Aviv, where each volume attracts an audience of 4000 -- done over 2 events in one evening -- but the city's latest edition trumped that number. Since the events always sell out within minutes of tickets going on sale, for Vol. 16 they decided to still do 2 sessions in one evening, but to then double that over 2 nights. Result? PechaKucha Night Vol. 16 in Tel Aviv attracted a whopping 8000 over its 4 sessions! Here's organizer Anat Safran with more on the event: We've been having a "double-pecha" night for quite a while now, with two shows on the same night and 2000 people at each presentation. Yet, tickets were sold out in minutes and many people weren't able to come. So this time we made a "double-double pecha" with two shows per night and two nights in a row. This is a total of 8000 people! We opened our tickets sales and our site crashed immediately. Once it was recovered, tickets sales went on just great, and for the first time ever there were tickets available for 5 days! Until they sold out 2 days before the event... It was quite an adventure putting on the same event four times, the presenters were just great, and the public got a unique experience each time. We had some amazing stuff going on stage: A designer who works with smells, a photographer who told the story of a special woman through photo albums she has found at the flee market, a couple of cinema directors who recorded kids interpretation to modern art pieces on audio guides at the museum, a group who has invented a new kind of performance style mixing live cinema, theater, and puppetry, a graphic designer who created the branding for an imaginary Israel in Africa, a performance group who investigate the art of kissing. They invited the couples in the public to stand up and kiss in the middle of their presentation and it was amazing! A choreographer who created a special piece where dancers would act on stage according to public choices made live by voting. A photographer and journalist who told the incredible story of sesamy, a hungarian artist who took a hilarious series of photos of grannies in Tel Aviv, and a magnificent singers band, a trio of girls, inspired by the harmonic music of the 30s. Boy, it was quit a night, and another night... See all of the photos from the event in this Facebook gallery.


Communicating Culture since 2010

The first creative networking event, the internationally acclaimed 20x20 PechaKucha Night was held in Shenzhen’s OCT Loft on February 28, 2010. (English bellow).   第 一讲: 首场以创意交流为目的的派对——全球性的创意活动“吱吱喳喳读图夜”于2010年2月28日在深圳OCT创意园成功举办。活动组织者Michael Patte亲自为其设计了海报,因为高新技术制造业是深圳的代名词,所以他别出心裁地以一个正在制作Iphone的工人为主题,女孩夸张的面部表情更道出 了吱吱喳喳读书夜的宗旨:特立独行,刺激,有趣。 11位演讲者在派对上讨论他们的作品,分享了他们这些作品背后的故事等,更有由DJ白兔所带来精彩难忘的表演。 The poster designed by event organiser Michael Patte featured amigrant worker manufacturing an iPhone, as high-tech manufacturing is something Shenzhen is synonymous with. Yet the girl’s cheeky expression alluded to the nature of PechaKucha; contrarian, provocative and fun. 11 presenters came to discuss their work. The program included an exclusive performance by DJ Baitu.   独创风格从2010年开始 Building Style since 2010   Please vote for your Kucha King   1. Nicolas Deladerriere 2. 李云霞 3. Jesse Warren 4. Ana Rio Vilar 5. Pablo Garcia 6. Sylvi Marry+DJ Baitu 7. Imagine Wong 8.Win Harington 9. Tommaso Masera 10. Julie Nouvel 12. Karta Healy  13. Veerle Hildebrand   欢迎关注我们的公众微信平台留意活动最新消息 Keep following our event reviews by adding the official Riptide account: Riptide锐态
