Tokyo Totem - A Subjective Guide

BY EDWIN GARDNER
@ VOL 126 ON JUN 24, 2015

"This entire environment that is [Tokyo] is completely made by man, so we're effectively living in the collective imagination of mankind."

At PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 126, Dutch explorer Edwin Gardner introduces a new type of city guide called "Tokyo Totem" which attempts to look at Tokyo in a more experiential sense. Compiling a purely objective guide of the largest city in the world is simply exercise in futility, hence Gardner's fresh angle. The book is coming together with a long list of collaborators over many visits to Tokyo. Tokyo Totem will be released later this year, so be on the lookout for it and we will keep you updated!

Nymphs, Duns, and Spinners: the Making of a Hatch Guide

BY ANN MILLER
@ VOL 4 ON FEB 11, 2016

Ann Miller has a love for bugs & fishing, who knew! And she tells us all about it in 6.6 minutes.

Ann’s most recent project stemmed from her love of fly fishing and teaching. While teaching beginning and intermediate fly fishing schools, she became frustrated with the lack of comprehensive Midwest information on insect hatches, taxonomy, behavior, and flies to match them. An aquatic biologist, she decided to tackle the world of bugs head on, and the result is the Hatch Guide for Upper Midwest Streams. The field guide was published in January, 2012 (Frank Amato Publications).

A Guide to Landscapes, Improving a Train Station, and Rampant Inspiration in Gothenburg

Presentations João Nunes is an architect, and in this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Catania Vol. 10) he talks about the challenges involved in working with landscapes. This usually means having to balance elements such as time, conditions, and the type of terrain, along with very different materials. In "A Rough Guide to Wakefield Kirkgate" (from PKN Barnsley Vol. 4), Sharon Shepherds shares a few ideas on what could be done to make the historic Wakefield Kirkgate station look better. Posters We've got two new additions to our Tumblr blog, including the poster for PKN Manizales Vol.  3 you see pictured above, as well as the two sides of the PKN San Antonio Vol. 6 flyer. Photos We have quite a few photo galleries to share with you today, some from PKNs that happened a while ago (so not necessary from a city's latest volume). Pictured above, PKN Hanoi Vol. 1.PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 9 [Flickr]PKN Marseille Vol. 17 [Facebook]PKN Catania Vol. 6 [Flickr]PKN Albury-Wodonga Vol. 1 [Flickr]PKN Hanoi Vol. 1 [Flickr] We shared a report by PKN Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson recently (about the city's recent Vol. 31), and here's a follow-up on the topic of instant inspiration:Sometimes inspiration travels fast. The day after PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31, presenter and sushi chef José Seruda went out in the city to find edible ingredients inspired by Klara Hansson who presented about "The edible city" the same night, and during the beer break served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants. José's own hunt resulted in a brand new starter dish using Daisy, Garlic-mustard flower and Dandelion Leaf served as part of the omakase offering the same night at his restaurant Hoze. I'm guessing it's this kind of passion for experimentation with ingredients and flavors that might be the reason many consider Hoze one of Sweden's best sushi restaurants. Below is a video of Klara going hunting for wild plants in Gothenburg city on a previous occasion and within 30 minutes serving up a fresh mushroom salad. How has a PechaKucha presentation inspired you? Calendar As we covered yesterday, tonight's (Wednesday, May 23) calendar includes PKN Prague Vol. 29, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3, PKN Leksand Vol. 4, and PKN Copenhagen Vol. 20.

A Guide to Post-Racial America and Urban Renewal in Genoa

Presentations Duante Beddingfield is a local writer whose work can be found in the Dayton Daily News and on the Welcome Dayton website. With his presentation (from PKN Dayton Vol. 10), Duante hopes to help guide us towards a post-racial America, by going through the "dos" and "don'ts" of having a black friend. Beatrice Moretti and Paola Sabbion are architects from URBAN LAB. In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 1), they cover a project called the new City Urban Planning.
 The project involved the announcement of the Genoa Urban Plan 2010 through the publication of the Urban Lab Notebooks, and the staging of the exhibition "Genoa Today, Genoa Tomorrow" in December 2011, an extraordinary instrument of participation and opportunity for discussion. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster you see above, for PKN San Juan (in Argentina) Vol. 7. It was designed by Francisco Riveros of Mundo Estudio. Photos We'll hopefully have more to share in the coming days, but for now here's a peek (above) at what the recent PKN Innsbruck Vol. 1 looked like -- and the event poster was posted to our Tumblr blog prior to the event. Calendar Tonight (July 19) we have St. Albert's first PKN, and there's a special edition PKN in Chicago. Tomorrow, it's Tijuana's turn to host its very first PKN, while Waterville has its Vol. 8.

Beyond Eating Local: Using History as a Guide to a New Food Security

How can Hawaii become the model agricultural society for the world? Josh Lanthier-Welch gives a great crash-course on the agricultural history of the Hawaiian islands. The islands went from feeding being self-sufficient to entirely reliant on imports. In "Beyond Eating Local: Using History as a Guide to a New Food Security" from PKN Honolulu Vol. 18, Josh shows us how the Hawaiians can once again utilise their lush volcanic farmland to return themselves to a sustainable, self-sufficient agricultural society.

10 STEPS TO BEING A PKN SPEAKER

1. Identify a topic that you are passionate about. In the spirit of PechaKucha Nights the world over, we are on the look-out for people to come present something they love, their latest creative projects or work. So come along and share your passion or an interesting hobby or a photo essay or anything else you can think of.   2. Send a brief outline of your topic to the City Organizers at pechakuchachennai@gmail.com   3. Wait for a confirmation from the City Organizers. City Organizers have various parameters to judge if the topic is suitable for a general audience. Good PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected -- unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different.   4. Once you receive confirmation from the City Organizers, go ahead and put together your 20 slides.   5. Send your completed slide deck to pechakuchachennai@gmail.com 24 hours before the event start time if you would like to retain your speaker slot. This is so that we can set up the slides to autorun and also ensure there are no glitches related to formatting, fonts etc. during the event.   6. Set up your profile on the official PechaKucha website. This mainly includes an email addreess, a photograph and a bio-sketch. City Organizers can help you with this.   7. Decide on appropriate tags AND categories for your completed presentation and send them to us at pechakuchachennai@gmail.com.Categories and tags offer an opportunity to increase traffic to your presentation which will be uploaded on the official PechaKucha website. If you are unsure of the difference between the two, categories allow for a broad grouping of topics such as art, photography, design, philately etc. But when you want to describe your presentation in more specific terms, you use tags such as books, publishing, minimalist, collectors' item etc.   8. Practise your presentation. Remember there is no 'go back one slide, please' in PechaKucha. And you have exactly 6 minutes 40 seconds to share your story.   9. Show up at least half an hour before start time at the venue.   10. When called to present, clear your throat and make that kickass presentation!
