Magazine Library, Print Culture, and Manizales' Poster Promotions

We're experimenting with this new post format again, trying to give you more bang for your buck in terms of offering a daily snapshot of what's happening in the world of PechaKucha, and trying to save you from the endless streams of feed notifications that seem to clutter our lives. Presentations As we recently covered on the blog, we had a special PechaKucha event this past Friday here in Tokyo, as part of the 10th edition of the Magazine Library exhibition. We invited 5 presenters to cover topics that touch on magazines and print culture, and we'll be sharing all of them online today and tomorrow. Today, you get to hear Audrey Fondecave talk about the upcoming issue of TOO MUCH ("the magazine of romantic geography"), Mike Abelson talk about his stationery brand Postalco, and a recent printing project he embarked on, and Luis Mendo tells us how Tokyo turned this editorial designer into an artist. Posters We've got another new batch of PKN posters and flyers up on our Tumblr blog, including a few examples of what was produced for PKN Manizales Vol. 1 (above, a flyer), as well as from PKN Muscat Vol. 1, PKN Beirut Vol. 13, PKN Buffalo Vol. 12, PKN Cagliari Vol. 2, and PKN Moscow Vol. 12. Event Photos We know you love seeing event photos -- to get a feel for how PKNs are being done around the world -- and we're going to be sharing even more, by posting links to even more galleries than in the past. Pictured above, a scene from March's PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10, as well as a few happy attendees during the beer break.PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10 [Flickr]PKN Warsaw Vol. 10 [Flickr]PKN Moscow Vol. 12 [Picassa] Links A few PechaKucha-related links from around the webosphere.A fun call-for-entries video (above) for the upcoming PKNs (Vol. 2 and 3) in Genoa An interview (in Russian) with our friends from PKN Moscow at TheoryandpracticeWe don't usually like to give too much instructions on how to do a presentation -- we like to see how each person approaches the format -- but for those in need a few tips, this post might helpCalendar It's a quiet Monday with no PechaKucha Nights happening tonight, but tomorrow night, Helsingborg will be hosting its PechaKucha Night Vol. 8, happening at the Helsingborgs Stadsteater.

Innsbruck's New Culture Center, Baskets and Pots, and Jumping in Tokyo

Presentations Konstantin Ronikier is the organizer of PKN Innsbruck and in this presentation (in German, from PKN Salzburg Vol. 12) he talks about a new cultural center in the center of Innsbruck. Konstantin was in charge of renovating the previous building into a space where people could meet, discuss, and produce events. Richard Wilshusen is an archeologist, and in this presentation (from PKN Longmont Vol. 6) he explains the material culture of baskets and pots. He explores the idea that the functionality behind the basket evolved in the design of ceramic pots. Posters and flyers Today's new poster addition to the Tumblr blog comes our way from Gisborne, with the city's Vol. 9 happening this coming Friday (June 22) -- the event will take place at the Dome Cinema. Here's a peek at the new flyer series that we're launching here in Tokyo for our PKN series -- with our next event, Vol. 93, happening on June 27. The photography is by Michael Holmes, the design by Luis Mendo, and we plan on producing more flyers that follow the same "jump" motif. Calendar There's one PKN happening tonight (June 18), and it's a Vol. 1, in the city of Launceston. Tomorrow, you can look forward to the following two events: PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2 and PKN San Diego Vol. 15.

Cultural Exchange Through Humor and an Art Support Group in Indonesia

Presentations Luke Lawrence and Mika Karashima are from the British Council in Japan. 2012 is an exciting year for the UK, with the London Olympics and Paralympics games, as well as the Diamond Jubilee. In their presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93), that explain how the British Council in Japan has launched a campaign named the GREAT OGIRI to promote the usefulness of learning English and exchanging culture through humor. Raymond Malvin's presentation (in Indonesian, from PKN Jakarta Vol. 8) is about Kopi Keliling, a movement (in the form of a variety of creative activities) that believes that art and creativity can make changes that are meaningful to the Indonesian people. By juxtaposing art and creativity (both in terms of work and the person behind the work) to a wider community, it hopes to promote a desire to produce art. Kopi Keliling allows talented young visual artists to display their work through events held regularly, moving from one public space to another. Although the intent is to showcase the works of these artists, Kopi Keliling understands that without an audience these works are meaningless, and so another goal is to create interaction between the audience and the art (and artist). Posters We have just one new poster on the Tumblr blog today, and it's an uncovered "blast from the past" from 2010, for Bialystok's very first PKN. Photos Today's gallery [Flickr] covers Springfield, Illinois' Vol. 6, which was held back in February. The city's next event, Vol. 8, is set for August 2 at the Capital City Bar & Grill Theatre. Calendar Tonight's (July 10) event takes the form of PKN Huancayo Vol. 10, and tomorrow you need to look to Nashville, for the city's Vol. 7.

Confessions of a culture junkie: Pecha Kucha Maastricht makes the grade

  By Susan Schaefer  I’ll admit I’m a culture junkie who until June 20, 2009 found the culture seen in Maastricht, well – politely boring, lacking an edge. Plenty of highbrow art and culture but not much of what I call ‘smart brow’ – that place where edgy meets elite. I have a confession – I am a culture junkie with a string of arts and culture leadership in my pedigree: I am the founding publisher, editor and reporter of the South Street Star, the first arts and culture weekly newspaper to cover the hot and happenin’ SoHo scene in my hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, where I also founded the Club Bay-Root, an original act nightclub, edited of the first ‘What’s Happening’ art and culture listings pages for New York newspaper, the Aquarian Weekly, and founded of the first women’s poetry festival while fronting my own poetry troupe, the Star Bards (we had a fan following well before poetry had ‘slams’!). Later, as the chair of the public policy committee for the Greater Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce in Minnesota, I founded the first ever business task force to study the impact of the creative class on our city. I’ve lived in Maastricht for the past five years and have been concerned with the strength of the city’s bid for European Capital of Culture city in 2018. Ah, but then a friend took me to a Pecha Kucha night and Maastricht and its surrounding “Euroregion” area shone as a wholly new sphere in my celestial imagination. It’s not that Maastricht invented this night. Far from it. Pecha Kucha Night was born in Japan 2003 as a place for designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Pecha Kucha, Japanese for the sound of conversation, is a fast paced, entertaining and informative format now running in 210 cities world wide, allowing each presenter 20 images at 20 seconds each (totaling 6 minutes and 40 seconds) to present original thought, ideas, concepts, and the like. Some presenters are literally ‘pitching’ their wares (rather than finding a gallery or the like to showcase them) while others intend to shock, stimulate or entertain. No matter the goal, the design and pace of this evening truly arouses passion. The hosts, of Pecha Kucha Maastricht: Pierre Buijs, Martijn Kagenaar and Jean-Paul Toonen have put their individual spin on this international event by filming and streaming the video on their own website. The presence of a multi-media crew adds a dash of panache and credibility to the event. With the brass ring of capturing the honor of hosting Europe’s Capital of Culture in mind, Pecha Kucha Maastricht features the artists, designers, performers, thinkers and tinkers who defy the city’s more staid image. For me, it revealed an intriguing sub-cultural literati from the too often unseen Maastricht cultural scene. Bravo! To learn more about the Speakers from June 20th simply click onto their website . My personal favorites from June 20th were the soft spoken but deeply sincere Jeroen Vinken, Art upon Fabrics, Lonneke ten Hooven,Food Seduction, a culinary poet, and space cadet, William Willems, whose Flower Bombing stole the show. See for yourself why Maastricht may indeed come up roses for its cultural quest. by Susan SchaeferSchaefer Communications, LLC   Photo: Audience, Pecha Kucha Maastricht (Photo: courtesy of Bert Janssen Photography (Maastricht)

Cross-Cultural Design

What to do when designing for the East from a Western perspective? Swiss natives Susanna Baer and Alex Sonderegger speak on SO+BA, their Tokyo-based design studio, and go into depth on understanding cross-cultural communication. In "Cross-Cultural Design" from a very special Swiss PechaKucha Night from PKN Tokyo, we see that Susanna and Alex possess a strong sense of social and political idealism that they enjoy incorporating into their works. They hope to inspire their surrounding community to think differently, and encourage them to voice their opinions.

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
