City Greetings: From Cleveland to Athens
Exchanging photographic or video greetings between PechaKucha Night cities is something we've been seeing for a while now, and here's an example of some good luck cheers between two cities -- Cleveland and Athens -- who recently celebrated their third and second volumes respectively. Pictured above, greetings from Cleveland. Below, the response from Athens. The two cities plan on continuing the exchanges at future events.
PKN Cleveland Vol. 3
PechaKucha Night returned to Cleveland earlier this month for a third edition, and as you'll see from the photos -- there's a Flickr photoset -- it was another great showing for the city. On top of the city greetings exchange we mentioned yesterday, we're pretty excited about the venue that organizers Mike Christoff and Raseem Parker are planning to use for Vol. 5 (to be held in the fall), "a virtually abandoned Subway Tunnel/Bridge Deck that runs underneath Cleveland's Detroit Superior Bridge in conjunction with an Arts Fest." Should be amazing. Below, a few more photos from PKN Cleveland Vol. 3. The next edition will be held at the Sterling Building July 10.
PKN Worcester Debuts This Week
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4KRR6U50AA&feature=player_embedded PechaKucha Night launches in Worcester this coming Sunday (June 14), and one of that city's organizers, Cynthia Woehrle, has posted the video above in which she goes over the presenters and talks about what PKN means to her. Here's a quote from an interview done with Cynthia at Worcester Magazine: What are you hoping will come from such an event in Worcester? Bring the art community closer? Inspire artists? I am looking to integrate artists of all types of media ( writers, filmmakers, scientists, painters, musicians, designers, good will doers,) and bring them to a format where they can share ideas, projects and inspirations on the same playing field. As well as give the community an opportunity to to hear perspective from creative thinkers. We are not looking to only inspire artists but inspire anyone. As much as I want to promote the local arts community this event reaches beyond that and connects Worcester to an international network of 200 cites in the Pecha Kucha organization. Ultimately my hope would be that new and exciting projects will be born out of connections made or ideas shared that would cultivate the creative community here in Worcester. PKN Worcester is also following in the footsteps of previous city exchanges by partnering up with PKN Halifax -- its Vol. 2 is happening the same night -- to share some video greetings. Below, the flyer for the PKN Worcester Vol. 1, designed by Todd Rawley.
Greetings from PKN Providence
httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gol-MYZW0FU One fun component from the recent PechaKucha Night in Providence Vol. 7 -- see the event report -- was this video greeting. Organizer Stephanie Gerson adds: The best part of the night might not have been a presentation at all, but a greeting we filmed in response to one from the PK folks in Worcester, MA. Note that our mayor is the first “C”!
Greetings from PKN Worcester
httpvhd://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzEkhU1yW3g&feature=player_profilepage Last week we shared the special greeting video that was produced during PechaKucha Night in Providence Vol. 7, and now here's the greeting exchange from the other city, Worcester, created during last month's Vol. 2.
Looking at another presentation from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 66, this time it's Ryotaro Bordini Chikushi's "Peace Sweater" project: A great and inspiring independent peace project.

Inspire Japan Events Are Now Streaming
Please note that the Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan event has kicked off, and a few of the events are already streaming on the Inspire Japan site. Currently streaming: Sendai, Kyoto, Christchurch, Nagano, and Tokyo. Throughout the day/night, when a city has its event, the link will appear on the left side, and clicking on it will open the stream. Feel free to go through the different feeds. On the right side we will keep our Tokyo feed going, which even after our event here is over, will continue with a mix of recorded video greetings from organizers, and the occasional live chat.
Some Lovely Greetings from Huddersfield
Huddersfield is participating in its own way in today's Inspire Japan efforts with a lovely site that shows various video greetings -- in the form of animated gifs -- that really come off looking quite nice. The city also held its Vol. 4 two days ago, raising funds at that event -- we covered it here.
Greetings from PKN Cities
As part of this week's 10th anniversary celebrations, we asked PKN city organizers to send us a special greeting image that we will include in a special City Loop, to share at our PKN Tokyo Vol. 100 -- the City Loop is the slideshow that is shown at all PKNs before the the start and during the breaks, showing photos from PKN events around the world. We've received so many great ones, like the one you see pictured here, from the PKN Murcia organizers. We will also share this special City Loop with all city organizers, and so they may share it at a PKN near you.
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. We're really excited and we think it'll be a total hit. Til next time!
