PKN Mauritius Vol. 2
Last week saw a second edition of PechaKucha Night in Mauritius, and organizer Stephen Ng again reports on a successful event. For me, being the organizer, Vol. 2 was a much better orchestrated event. This time, I had an actual idea of how the event should be running and what to expect: from technical difficulties to last minute changes from presentators, things went pretty smoothly. With a public of around 150 who were still mostly new to the concept, it was with amazement that they discovered how Mauritius needed this kind of event to promote designers/artists/creators. Feedback was all positive. Here's a look at that night's lineup: Jason Lafolle & Annick Sandian, (video conceptors) Ravior (jewelry maker) Architects Studio Kolektif Revey Twa (association of artists against AIDS/HIV) Gilberte Marimootoo (artist/painter) Doorgesh Mungur (photographer) Arnaud Goviden (cartoonist and design student) Bernard Thanay (artist/painter) Some of these presenters will be featured here at PechaKucha Daily in the coming weeks. Photos from the event are courtesy of Clyde Koa Wing.
Ravi Jetshan (Ravior) has been a jewelry maker since 1982, and he presented some of his work at the recent PechaKucha Night in Mauritius Vol. 2. That city's organizer, Stephen Ng, writes this about Ravi: Volume 2 was certainly highlighted by Ravior, a jewelry making company led by Ravi Jetshan since 1982 -- "or" means gold in French and in Creole, Mauritius' very own dialect that Ravi uses when naming some of his collections. One thing you'll soon realize with Ravi is that he really holds a lot of affection towards his culture, his tradition, his country, and he perfectly translates all of that through his designs. Add to this the fact that he has traveled the world and speaks six languages -- the audience at Vol. 2 could well understand how the man delivers such great creativity, innovation, and attention to detail. "The success of Ravior is essentially the product of fine-tuned teamwork by groomed professionals equipped with multiple skills reinforced by continuous advanced training. Rigour in craft and skill is the key to quality production for each and every jewellery piece, all this driven by professional and civic ethics." This was taken from www.ravior.com, where more of his collections can be viewed. At the start of his presentation this is what Ravi had to say in Creole: "Ene le monde sans bijou, c'est ene ene le monde sans lamour." Literally, a world without jewelry is a world without love...
PKN Zagreb Vol. 6
PechaKucha Night in Zagreb Vol. 6 certainly rocked its outdoor venue last week, and here's co-organizer Jelena Mihelcic with a report on the evening's proceedings. PechaKucha Night in Zagreb Vol. 6 gathered 12 presenters and around 400 people in the audience. For the first time outdoors, in the courtyard of the club Mocvara (Swamp), designers, theater and visual artists, and one scientist had their first PechaKucha experience. Davor Jadrijević tried to explain his invention, a device for wireless energy transfer, in a very approachable way, which he also presented physically after all the presentations had finished, so that all the curious people who had additional questions could ask them directly. Renowned theater director Ivica Buljan talked about his play Garage, Ira Payer and Tomo Ricov explained the idea behind the recent D-Day, while Marina Pirs had a very poetic and impressive presentation about Bead by Bead, the first fair trade company in Croatia. It is a company that sells hand-made jewelry from Uganda, investing 20 percent of its profits back into the community producing the jewelry. Interesting and fun presentations were staged by the designers Dario Devic and Hrvoje Zivcic, the authors of the poster for this PechaKucha Night, and a fashion designer Branka Scepanovic (ROBA) who talked about what's behind the expensive clothes they make. Kristina Lenard, Elvis Krstulović and Iva Kovac represented the visual arts, and the inevitable architects were this time represented by Goran Rako, a very well established Croatian author. PechaKucha Night in Zagreb started off in January 2009 and was initiated and organized by the agency Bruketa&Zinic, 3LHD, Komakino and Lana Cavar. Including this one, PechaKucha Night in Zagreb has so far hosted a total of 57 presentations, with 91 presenters and 380 minutes of program that has been seen by around 3,500 spectators. We would like to thank our supporters: AVC Zagreb, Mocvara club, Pogon - Zagreb center for independent culture and youth, Croatian Ministry of Culture, City Department for Education, Culture and Sport, AVC Zagreb, Box Packaging and Vector Design!

Presentations Recorded at PKN Gibsons Vol. 2, it's time to pack you bags and accompany Coralie Swaney has she takes you on a tour of New Zealand, the Tauiwi (non-Maori) way. Zissis Roubos is an Athens-based actor and director, and in this presentation (in Greek, from PKN Athens Vol. 3) he makes a case for improving the relationship between people and dogs, illustrating how we can better live with them. Posters New today on our Tumblr blog are the two posters (with art by Gary Venn) that were produced for tomorrow night's PKN Hamilton Vol. 10 -- an outdoor event that got postponed earlier due to rain -- and the poster for the very first PKN in Launceston. Photos Today's collection of photo galleries from PechaKucha Nights the world over. Pictured above, PKN Beirut Vol. 12.PechaKucha event in Mygdalhus, organized by PKN Aalborg [Flickr]PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3 [Flickr]PKN Toronto Vol. 11 [Flickr]PKN Beirut Vol. 12 [Flickr]PKN Banja Luka Vol. 2 [Flickr] One of the links above is to a gallery of photos for a special PechaKucha event that was held in the town of Mygdalhus, and here's PKN Aalborg organizer Annette Scheibel -- who was behind the event -- with a report on how it all went.The PechaKucha event in Mygdalhus here in Denmark on May 23 went splendid! Aproximately 40 people attended the small venue -- the very active art-gallery Mygdalhus is driven by the artists themselves, and serves as a community house as well. Summer has hit Denmark, and we gathered the PechaKucha participants outside in the sun for a cosey network dinner organised by the gallery people After an introduction to what PechaKucha is, Claus Gajhede talked about his passion -- he organises adventure role-plays in the woods for children and for adults, and he explained passionately how role-playing can release a lot of potential in people's minds by playing parts, getting into storytelling, and just spending time in nature by the fire or doing all sorts of tasks. Street artist, illustrator, and computer play designer Lars Pank talked about evolving his art and the many layers of connecting different kinds of expression and storytelling through recognizable forms. Architect/artist and art gallery manager of the gallery in the lighthouse of Hirtshals (located beautifully by the ocean on the west coat) Søren Friis talked about his work, sources of inspiration through a long life work with geometric forms and light, and collaborative work on a big sculpture/installation at Aalborg's harbour with a Danish poet called Peter Laugesen. Art gallery owner Jens Guldsmed Thomsen made a very poetic speech about the meeting between art and viewer. After the break, artist Niels Fabæk presented the Nordjylland and Berlin-based art-streamer project CITY-LIFTING, and German jewelry artist Lioba Maria Solga shared her passion for tango with a short introduction speech, and then she danced to music and slides just changing colours -- with a broom!!! As funny, passionate, and unexpected people are, so can PechKucha show the variety of the human mind. Anders Budolf Andersen, a graphic designer, has tried to develop a graphic reward system for doing tedious tasks to make them joyful to do and shared them on a website and blog for free download. Finally, project manager Nikkie Dahm Breinholt told us about her ideas for BUNKERLOVE, an art-festival project in the leftover war bunkers from World War 2, located on the beaches of the west coast.Calendar Tonight (May 29) sees PKN Saint-Etienne Vol. 9, while tomorrow includes the following four events: PKN Providence Vol. 38, PKN Jersey Vol. 1, PKN Tokyo Vol. 92, and PKN Hamilton Vol. 10.
