Talk Talk Talk

BY ROBERT KETEYIAN
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 13, 2013

Robert Keteyian explores thought proccesses, and the we think and communicate. Everyone has different levels of auditory, kinesthetic, linguistic, and visual-spatial reasoning, which may account for difficulties in communication. By understanding these innate differences, we can become less judgemental and more accepting of one another.

Talking to Yourself

BY RAY FENWICK
@ VOL 16 ON DEC 05, 2013

Artist-of-all-sorts Ray Fenwick speaks to a crowd and to you (if you listen) about talking to one's self. He points out the fact that our voice is a huge part of our identity, but in many cases we don't acknowledge that it is the embodiment of our thoughts while still remaining a function of our body. Because our voice is at the crossroads of our psychological and physiological being, it can be surreal and disconcerting to practice, but Ray encourages us all to see what comes out!

Katherine Darnstadt

We were very happy to see some PechaKucha love shown on the Architecture for Humanity Chicago website, first with the appearance of Katherine Darnstadt's presentation "Design Like You Give a Damn," from PechaKucha Night in Chicago Vol. 12 -- you do know that you can embed PK presentations, right? And as organizer Peter Exley points out, the "Street Furniture Competition" entries include a few PKN Chicago vets, notably Joseph Altshuler (Vol. 13) and Eylül Wintermeyer (Vol. 9). "Chicago fans will remember Eylül's megalomaniacal wine vessel and bread maker that sustained thousands in New York, Joseph looking through Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window into the lives of his Chicago neighbors, and Katherine eating dirt, literally." If you're in Chicago, you won't want to miss the next volume.

Poster for PKN Cardiff Vol. 4

Our day of posters continues (see our previous posts on Coimbra and Breda) with this one for the upcoming PechaKucha Night in Cardiff Vol. 4, to be held March 14 at Chapter -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. The poster was created by Tamsyn Gill, a 3rd year graphic design student (UWIC), and here's more from organizer Lou Cameron on how the design came about:For this event we had a competition with the graphic design students and Tamsyn's design was chosen. Her theme used the play on words for PechaKucha. Tamsyn thought the title sounded like Peaches and Cwtches. Cwtches meaning cuddle or a hug in Welsh. We also have an ECO theme running through the event, so it kind of fits with the person hugging the world.

Heineken Open Design Explorations (Powered by PechaKucha)

We're very happy to announce that PechaKucha has teamed up with Heineken in support of the Open Design Explorations competition, to help find a few designers from all disciplines that will get to participate in the creation and launch of a temporary club space at next year's edition of Milan Design Week (Milano Salone). The first phase of the project will see four special PechaKucha events held in Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Milan, and New York, where those chosen to participate will get to present their ideas for the space using the 20 x 20 format. One designer from each city will be chosen and then sent to Milan to participate in the final phase, which is the creation of the space itself. This is first time we have teamed up with anyone for a project like this, but we feel it is a great way to give the PechaKucha community a chance to enter and hopefully be seen at the Milano Salone. If you would like to participate, please note that you need to be able to attend the PechaKucha events in one of the four cities mentioned, and your entry needs to be sent by August 14. You'll find all details on how to enter on the following page. Update: Please note that the deadline for the event in Tokyo has been extended to August 21.

A Traveling Companion, the Indonesian Youth Conference, and PKN St. Louis at the CAM

Presentations In 2009, Nikki Mansel met a tiny bear during a trip. Since then, it has turned into her most trusted traveling companion, and as you'll see in her presentation (from PKN Jersey Vol. 1), they've been sharing adventures in quite a few countries. Here are details on this presentation by Alanda Kariza, presented in Indonesian at PKN Jakarta Vol. 7.Indonesian Youth Conference (IYC) is an activity planned and organized by youth, and aimed at gathering Indonesia youth to share problems and ideas, enhance their awareness of current issues, and convince the public that youth voices must be heard and taken seriously. IYC consists of two activities that are intertwined with each other: 1. A forum that invites 33 young people aged 15 to 21 years from all over Indonesia to represent their respective provinces at this event. They are expected to be actively involved in communities and networks, respectively, are determined to make a change towards a better Indonesia, and want to start a movement or project in their community. 2. A festival, made up of organized seminars and workshops that can be visited by anyone by buying tickets. Seminar sessions and workshops at the festival are more general, covering a wide range of issues. It invites experts, professionals, government officials, and youth achievement to talk about law and governance, politics, culture, creative industries, information technology, environment, education, health, activism, social entrepreneurship, as well as journalism and media. Posters We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with the poster above for this past Friday's PKN Seoul Vol. 12, which marked a re-launch of the series -- it had been dormant for a few years. Also uploaded are posters for tonight's PKN Fresno Vol. 16 and for next month's PKN Concepcion Vol. 7. Photos Today we point out this photo gallery [Facebook], which covers last month's PKN St. Louis Vol. 9, held at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM). Take note that PKN St. Louis Vol. 10 is set for September 27. Calendar We kick off the week with tonight's (July 23) PKN Fresno Vol. 16 and PKN San Jose Vol. 7. Tomorrow, you can look forward to PKN Rockford Vol. 2 and PKN Halifax Vol. 11.
