A 20x20 Lullaby, Surreal Drawn Life, and a PechaKucha Crate
Presentations Megg Evans is a Melbourne-based designer who co-founded Brolly Studios with Martin Heide and Stuart Webber. When she gave this presentation (from PKN Melbourne Vol. 19), her son Melvin was just 10 weeks old, and she brought him along and gave this beautiful 20x20 lullaby to her baby and the very impressed crowd. Fede Calandria's work could be described as a combination of art, design, and illustration. As he explains in this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mendoza Vol. 3), he finds inspiration everywhere, and likes to incorporate what he sees in his daily life, interpreting it in his own way. Posters We end the week with an explosion of posters on our Tumblr blog, with the following events being represented: PKN Guimaraes Vol. 3, PKN Memphis Vol. 1 and 2, PKN St. Albert Vol. 1, PKN Mallorca Vol. 1, and then PKN Maribor Vol. 9, which is pictured above. We sure love that Maribor tagline: "Come and meet our amazing guests. Creativity is their middle name ;-)" Below, a look at both sides of the flyer that was produced for last night's PKN Norwich Vol. 4. Photos We like this spray painted crate we spotted here, located at the entrance of this past week's PKN Bilbao Vol. 12. Below, a look at the old school billboard entrance to the theatre where last night's PKN Winnipeg Vol. 10 was held. Calendar It's Friday (June 22), and so here's what you can expect in terms of events over the weekend, starting with tonight: PKN Zilina Vol. 19, PKN Sendai Vol. 2, PKN Miami Vol. 2, PKN Gisborne Vol. 9, and PKN Seattle Vol. 37. It's a quiet Saturday in PKN land, but Sunday will see PKN Pueblo Vol. 5.
What is PKN anyway?
What's Pecha Kucha Night? It’s a community event where presenters are given six minutes and forty seconds to share a story, a hobby, an experience, or pretty much anything else. The Pecha Kucha format is also called “20x20,” because each speaker will have 20 slides that will display for 20 seconds apiece.Why the funny name? Pecha Kucha was developed in Japan, where pecha kucha is a common word for chitchat. More than anything, Pecha Kucha Night exists to get conversations started! The audience can share lots of questions and comments with each other and the presenters during intermission and after the event.So, what kind of presentations are we talking about? Will I be bored? You will not be bored. An array of topics is covered at each PKN! Past topics have involved: Travel, hunting, crafts, science, health, sports, philosophy, creating art, and building a house of mud and straw! PKN presenters aren’t professional speakers—they’re just people with twenty images and less than seven minutes to share stories with the community.Is this a sales thing? Absolutely not. In fact, PKN is a nonprofit organization. We just love chitchat.Is PKN family-friendly? Yes! Each presentation is suitable for all ages.
