The Streets Belong to Us

BY MATEUS BAGATINI
@ BRAZILIAN LIFESTYLE POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON SEP 16, 2015

"We can take over the streets. We can have fun there because the city belongs to us."

In "The Streets Belong to Us" from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, content creator Mateus Bagatini shines the spotlight on Brazilian street party culture, but not the carnival kind with which we're all familiar! Exhausted and bored with the exclusive and over-priced club scene, a new generation of partiers have decided to take the club to the street, hosting DJs and dancers under bridges, in the parks, or even in once-abandoned commercial spaces, bringing with them more people, cheap booze, the authorisation of the city, and well ... what looks like a damn good time. Not just simply focussed on cutting loose, the parties have taken on numerous forms, often with a social message and have successfully demonstrated being an agent of change for the betterment of cities. As a citizen-driven culture, at parties in Brazil's public spaces everyone is invited ...after all the city belongs to us!

The Art of Drinking

BY ROGERIO IGARASHI VAZ
@ BRAZILIAN LIFESTYLE POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON SEP 16, 2015

"The bar is a great place to learn about geography because it has bottles from all over the world."

In "The Art of Drinking" from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, Bartender Rogerio Igarashi Vaz shares a facinating perspective on how the collision of Eurpoean, African, and aboriginal cultures of his native Brazil, informs much of his mixology philosophy and many of the drinks he serves up in his century-old-motiffed 12-seat bar in fashionable Ebisu, Tokyo. He talks about the more emphemeral duties of a Bartender while ellaborating on his shared love for twisting old world cocktails into re-imagined modern versions, sometimes even using the most unlikely of incredients, from bacon to seaweed, often substituting a classic drink's base with Brazil's distilled sugarcane spirit, Cachaça!

He signs off by saluding "Bartenders are tring to make a better world ...through Cocktails!"

Project Yemanja

BY ESTHER SPRINGETT
@ VOL 4 ON SEP 27, 2016

"It was really through there workshop of the simple, almost futile, act of making paper flowers that we realized the potential for bringing diverse groups together." 

in Project Yemanja from PechaKucha night Bexhill-on-Sea, Vol. 4, Esther Springett speaks about a fascinating effort that sprung from a seemingly misplaced Brazilian festival in Camden called Santido, which aimed to connect sights, smells, sounds and senses of Brazil to Camden. Coinciding with the Rio Olympics this project centered on water and the act of sending well wishes in the form of paper flowers down rivers and out to sea. Hear the story of how hundreds of these paper flowers we're made in Camden and scenically sailed up the regents canal.

Celebrating Melville and a Creative Jobs Platform in Brazil

Presentations Megan Whilden is a government worker in the city of Pittsfield, and in this presentation (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 1) she talks about the "Call Me Melville" summer cultural program. In this presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 7), Tiago Yonamine talks about how he created Trampos, Brazil's biggest and most famous creative jobs platform. From its Twitter account to the new powerful website, Tiago explains how young talent needs a place to find work and how brands can take notice of their potential. Posters Today's new posters on the Tumblr blog come from Durban -- for the city's Vol. 7, which is happening on August 22 -- and Springfield, MO, for tonight's Vol. 7. Notice Although the worldwide PechaKucha network never rests, the HQ does in order to replenish its energy, and hopefully catch a few rays. We will therefore be on "sleep" mode for the next two weeks, and won't be doing our regular daily posts during this time. We will still have two new presentations going up on the site each and every day, which we'll share on the blog as well, but for details on the PKNs happening during this 2-week period, please have a look at our calendar page. Calendar Tonight, Friday (August 3), you can catch the following three events: PKN Panjim Vol. 3, PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 7, and PKN Hakata Vol. 7. Then on Sunday, we have PKN Dunsborough Vol. 5 and PKN Beijing Vol. 21, and Monday has PKN Pittsboro Vol. 11.

A Japanese Micro Brewery and a Closer Look at the Brain

Presentations As any true beer connoisseur will tell you, all beers are not created equal. In this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94), Shiro Yamada talks about the micro brewery he helped create to make a better beer (Nippon Craft Beer Inc.) and the "KAGUA" scented ale he's been producing. This presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 8) gets rather "heady," as Pierre Magistretti takes everyone on a detailed tour of the brain, and other aspects of newrobiology (the study of the nervous system). Posters New on the Tumblr blog today is the poster you see above, for the upcoming PKN Nagoya Vol. 12. The event will be held on August 24 at Montage Lounge.  httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QniQ5qxaubQ Videos Dnipropetrovsk's PKN Vol. 2 was yesterday (or is possibly still happening as we write this), and organizer Volodymyr Nedogoda has shared the video you see above, to give us an idea of what the city's Vol. 1 -- held back in May -- was like.  Calendar There are two events on tap for today (August 1): PKN Glasgow Vol. 9 and PKN Azores Vol. 3. Tomorrow gets a bit busier, with the following three events: PKN Winter Harbor Vol. 6, PKN Springfield, IL Vol. 8, and PKN Victoria Vol. 10.
