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

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! You'll find more photos from PKN Zagreb Vol. 6 in this Flickr photoset.
