Future Full of Promise

@ VOL 2 ON JUL 12, 2013

@ VOL 18 ON FEB 17, 2013

Creating Enduring Art

@ VOL 109 ON DEC 04, 2013

Ryan Roth, an artist representative, talks about how undervalued art is in many of today's cities. Buildings are often built in standard ways with art as only an afterthought. They are torn down again within a few years whereas buildings that are built in artistic ways are left standing for hundreds of years.


First Nations Peoples Along the Fraser River

@ VOL 3 ON JUL 27, 2013

Landscape-told Stories

@ VOL 20 ON NOV 14, 2013

Janet Stephenson presents us with numerous idyllic photographs of the New Zealand tussock grasslands, and encourages us to question the subtle inconsistencies found within her photographs. She speaks specifically on the small creeks or "races" lining the hillsides, and at first inquires as to why they exist -- she then delves into the mysteries nature unveils.

Bud Roegee's favorite sport is baseball, and in "Hysterically Historical," that's the context in which he walks us through the history of the city of Grand Rapids. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Grand Rapids Vol. 2.


The Importance of History, Life Lessons from Sao Paulo, and PKN Champaign-Urbana Illustrated

Presentations History is important, we can surely all agree on that, but with his presentation (from PKN Memphis Vol. 2) Justin Thompson wants to make sure we all get the message. Entrepreneur and graphic designer Gustavo Garcia uses his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10) to teach us 10 important life lessons, regarding work, jobs, life, career, and more. Posters The new posters on the Tumblr blog today are for PKN Moscow Vol. 19, PKN Columbus Vol. 22, and PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 10, which is the beautiful fully illustrated poster you see above.  Photos Today we'll point you to photos from last month's PKN Tokyo Vol. 93, taken as always by Michael Holmes -- we have galleries up on both Facebook and Flickr. Our Vol. 94 is coming up -- on Wednesday of next week (July 25) -- and since August is always a skip month for us here in Tokyo, it will be our last PKN of the summer. Calendar It's a quiet Wednesday with no PKNs happening tonight, but tomorrow (July 19) you can look forward to St. Albert's very first PKN, as well as a special edition PKN in Chicago (more details in this post).


A History of British Accents, Book Design in Xalapa, and a New Milestone

Presentations It's with great joy that we can say that, with the inclusion today of a presentation from the city of Xalapa, we now have presentations representing 100 different cities on the PechaKucha website -- and we're only a few presentations away from reaching a global count of 500 online presentations. It's always been our goal to share the widest variety of presentations as possible -- and in as many languages and regions as possible -- and it feels like it's something we're achieving day by day. And it won't stop until we manage to get presentations online from every single PechaKucha Night city! Mark Staplehurst is a web designer and developer from England, and in his presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 16) he talks about the history of British accents. You'll soon realize how Englishmen are all "branded by the tongue." What can you tell about Mark from his accent? In this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Xalapa Vol. 8), Álvaro Itzamá takes us on a tour of various book projects he's worked on, each quite different from the other. Posters There's just one addition to the Tumblr blog today, and it takes the form of the poster for the upcoming PKN Bozeman Vol. 4 (on September 12), pictured above -- you'll find more details, including the full list of presenters, on the official event page. Calendar Here are the two events you can catch tonight (September 5): PKN Roanoke Vol. 3 and PKN Trnava Vol. 5. Tomorrow, it's another big Thursday with the following: PKN Barnsley Vol. 5, PKN Dunedin Vol. 15, PKN Svendborg Vol. 2, PKN Singapore Vol. 5, PKN Santiago Vol. 3, and PKN Budapest Vol. 28.

Vol 01 Summary

In October we had our first PechaKucha Night here in Fairbanks! It was a fun evening learning about a variety of topics. We heard from John Schauer, presenting his recent joint endeavor, a project called, 49 Faces of Alaskan Adventure. You can find out more about it here: We learned the rules of creating a spectacular Halloween costume and why it has to be homemade from Corey DiRutigliano. We took a virtual architecture tour of Japan with Janet Matheson and her wonderful photos from her recent trip. Kristen Timm gave us an entertaining and enlightening view into the history of Tourism. Randall Rozier gave us a glimpse into our caffiene nation and how coffee has influenced us in more ways than you might realize. Brittany Jackson presented on how important the design of public restrooms is to our public spaces and how the design of them is so varied across the globe. Finally, I gave a brief history of the banjo, it's not just a bluegrass instrument.  We had a good size crowd that is now more enlightened and inspired and ready for our next PechaKucha Night!
