Leonardo Meza

There is no age limit -- or requirement -- to present at PechaKucha Night, and earlier this week 9-year-old "illustrillustrator" Leonardo Meza proved just that at the inaugural edition of PechaKucha Night in Savannah. That city's organizer Aaron Cohen had this to say on Leonardo's "Mythical Creature Drawings and Handmade Valentines" presentation: I don't know if it was his cuteness or his in-depth analysis of his own work, but this kid brought down the house. His keen observations and wonderment of how close the eye is to the brain and how two scorpions make a baby scorpion were hysterical. About four presenters thanked me afterwards for not having them follow his presentation.

PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 7

Another PechaKucha Night for Tel Aviv, another amazing audience of 2,000. Organizers Anat Safran and Itay Mautner send in this report. One night. 9 presenters. 2000 people. Yes, another big success for PechaKucha in Tel Aviv. While people were taking their places, drinking and chatting a stunning graphic presentation of typographic work was projected on the 3 big screens. Right after that, at 20:20, our presenters came up on stage and left us all excited, happy and thoughtful. We had a designer that creates chocolate boxes inspired by local political and social issues. An interactive project that showed us what the average Israeli looks like. A show where actors faces were replaced by huge masks on which videos are projected. Some video-art projects that were made of mixing and mashing famous movies scenes. The lead singer of a virtual band presented her band's stop motion clips, video game and music. A light designer exposed us to the handmade fabrication process of her amazing creations. A Japanese-Israeli dancer has created a special piece involving live dance show, live music and video. A young illustrator showed monsters that wake up at night on the sidewalks of the city. And a brother and sister who created an amazing project of interactive art: a taxi that allows a passenger in one city to experience a live trip in Jerusalem. As if all that wasn't enough, we also made our version of the cell-phone photo. It was really amazing seen from the stage. We're taking 5 minutes to relax and than we'll start working on PechaKucha Tel Aviv Vol.8, set for December. Thank you all, and we hope to see you in Tel Aviv real soon. Below, a few more photos from PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 7.

PKN Warsaw Vol. 1

PechaKucha Night made its debut in Warsaw at the end of last month, and now we get to hear from organizer Dorota Szopowska on how the launch went. Hello from Warsaw! Our first PechaKucha Night in Warsaw is over. For the last few days we have been working really hard. Everyone could hear about PechaKucha Night on the radio or television, read about it in magazines and websites or gain information from posters hanging all over Warsaw. We were wondering what can happen during the planed event, which name is so difficult to pronounce correctly. The 22nd of October was fantastic, colorful and more. We estimate that there were about 250 people in the Łowicka Center that evening. I have a feeling that we surprised everyone. The Łowicka Center was full of people. We had to place a second screen at the corridor. People were saying that the idea was great, new and so different from what they expected. We were welcomed by Mark Dytham, who said that PechaKucha is not Machu Picchu. Despite this fact, some presenters really soared into the sky! The 3K band added splendor to the occasion, performing on the stage until 8.20pm when the main part started. There were 14 presentations. The first were representatives from MASSMIX group specializing in street activities. The second was Ralph Talmont, who presented his theory of Capitalism 2.0. Then young architect Gaweł Tyrała showed his concept of the architectural usage of containers. After him on stage appeared Agnieszka Stanasiuk from fabrics’ studio PRZESIEWALNIA and her geometrical projects. Next artist Daniel Mizieliński from graphic studio HIPOPOTAM made everyone laugh. His fairytales for kids cheered the audience. The spirit changed rapidly during the next presentation by Jacek Dębecki from ceramics workshop. His speech about the impact of handmade lamps on modern indoor was fascinating. At the end of the first part we had a chance to learn about Hindi ancient dance presented by Marcin Soszka and his special guest Ewa Domaszewicz, who is a professional dancer and a Sanskrit student. The beer break is the indispensable element of PechaKucha Night. Now we know it! During the break we had time to chat. On the stage the 3K band was improvising and in the background you could watch the city loop presentation. People were sharing their first impressions, starting conversations with strangers, getting in touch with others. And the beer was as it should be – cool! The first presentation after the break was Monika Nikodem, who designed a special game for blind children. The second presenter, Michał „Rysiek” Woźniak, spoke about freedom in culture. Then two girls from PAINHOUSE group, Klaudia K and Monika Jarosławska, enchanted the audience with their paintings and a very young photographer Agnieszka Deja showed her pictures of abandoned places. The real revelation were STREETWORKERZ, a hip hop band with a mission. They made a fantastic show. I’m sure everyone will remember them. Sergiusz Sawin talking about Future Centers from INNOVATIKA was also fantastic. Last but not least was the stunning Piotr Szczepański, who proved that PechaKucha is all about chatting. The audience was bursting out laughing, while he was interpreting his own graphics. At 11pm the 3K band performed their last song. We can’t wait to organize the next PechaKucha Night in Warsaw! We were all euphoric, because of the atmosphere, presence of so many people, great presenters and all praises we earned. The next day the amount of PechaKucha Night Warsaw fans tripled and it is still growing! We got enthusiastic reviews and we are happy that we can repeat this event. The second PechaKucha Night in Warsaw will take place in January or February in a different part of the capital city.

Poster for PKN Bemidji Vol. 12

PechaKucha Night in Bemidji Vol. 12 happens tomorrow (April 26), and here's organizer Samantha Nienow with all the details (and you'll also find all the presenters listed with links on the official event page):Pecha Kucha Night is your all-expense-paid vacation from wifi. Turn off your iDevice and show your colon-hyphen-right-parenthesis face April 26th at the New City Ballroom at 6:30. You can tweet in person and LOL—no hashtags or abbreviations required. (ROFL is okay, but not recommended for your safety.)If you have attended a PKN, you know why it has been described as “social media in real life.” This is your opportunity to connect with old friends and make new friends. You can like things you never even knew about! You could even gain a few followers. “What the heck is PKN?” Put down your Droid. I’ll save you some googling. PechaKucha Night is a celebration of stories. Speakers share six-minute-forty-second snippets of their lives, ideas, passions, or work. While they speak, twenty images will play for twenty seconds each. That’s why it’s also called 20×20. You can start a discussion, share a joke, and enjoy handmade art by local artists. Listen to your neighbors’ stories. Even if you’ve heard them before, we promise they won’t go over six minutes and forty seconds. We want the New City Ballroom to exceed 140 characters. We’d like to see the whole community come out and share in stories, laughter, and the spirit of making new connections—in person! Participate in a real social network at Bemidji’s Pecha Kucha #12!

My Ceylon

Sri Lanka, or Ceylon as it was known until 1972, is where photographer Andrew Kaufman began to truly value handmade works.

Old into New

From glue to charcoal, tools to blades, nearly everything blacksmith and craftsman Dave Friesen uses is all-natural and handmade. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Old into New" from PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 17, Dave wants to create "future antiques." Much like the soothing Bob Ross, Dave takes us on a step-by-step, calm journey on how he breathes new life into discarded materials and creates new and useful works of art. He lets us deeper into his creative process by showing us before and after images of his tools and knives.

Lake Michigan in a Dugout Canoe

"That not how most people build boats these days but I figured I was new to woodworking, logs float no matter what, and I was committed." In Lake Michigan in a Dugout Canoe from PechaKucha Night St. Joseph Vol. 1, Mary Catterlin and and Amy Lukas share their story of how, in the summer of 2012, they circumnavigated Lake Michigan in their handmade dugout sailing canoe. After 93 days and 1200 miles, they returned home to the beach of Beverly Shores, Indiana. This adventure has led to the creation of a self produced documentary and a published illustrated journal.

7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living

“I’m that annoying friend that can’t just sit and watch a movie, I knit and watch a movie. But I also make really awesome homemade gifts for everybody so you know– they can only get so mad about it.” When you hear the word “homestead” what do you think of? I think of the old west in the US of A’s past, of folk heading out into the unknown with just their wits and wares and know-how. In 7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Volume 28, speaker Kimberly Coburn would do just fine out there on her own given that she is helping revive the hand-me-down knowledge that was once passed from generation to generation but has somehow stopped now. Sewing, smithy work, growing food, glass making, and more! Tune in to hear Kimberly make the case for bringing back the “old knowledge”!
