A Work in Progress

According to the photo above, Eliot Reeves is preparing a PechaKucha presentation, and is having a bit of hard time with it (see middle square). We'll just say this: Eliot, don't give up, the best is to just find 20 great images, and get inspired by that.


Program for PKN Oslo Vol. 11

PechaKucha Night in Oslo Vol. 11 was held a few days ago, and organizer Arpna Gupta Stokke sends in a few photos of the terrific program they prepared for the event. It was produced by graphic design studio Your Friends, and as Arpna explains, tips its hat to the birthcountry of PKN, Japan. The programme has taken its inspiration from Japan, birth place of Pechkucha night. The format is based on standard Japanese paperformats JIS. The traditional Shiroku Ban is the size of the folded out program. The flyers, drink coupons and tickets are also based on the Shiroku Ban format. To get a proper folder for the speakers we've used a origami tecnique which makes it possible to have an 8-page folder without using any binding. It's cost-effective, good for the environment and makes for an intriguing piece of design.


Problems for Lars Vilks

PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson sends us this bit of terrifying news regarding one of the city's previous presenters, artist Lars Vilks. Threatened Swedish artist and previous PechaKucha Gothenburg presenter (Pecha Kucha GBG Vol #10) Lars Vilks says he's not exactly "shaking with fear" despite the news from Ireland that police there on Tuesday arrested seven people for allegedly plotting to kill the Swede for a drawing he created three years ago which depicted the Prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog. You can read more about the story here and here, and there's also a Wikipedia entry on the topic. Vilks was a presenter at PKN Gothenburg Vol. 10, where he talked about his amazing "Nimis" installation (pictured).


Haiti Progess Report

As you are probably well aware, all of our "PechaKucha for Haiti" efforts are made possible because of our collaboration with Architecture for Humanity. In this post you'll find the latest Haiti progress report from Cameron Sinclair, with details on how things are going, what is currently needed, and more info on how to volunteer. A lot has been happening in the past several weeks as we establish our Rebuilding Design Center in Port-au-Prince and distribute our manual of earthquake and hurricane construction advice on the ground and online (via the Open Architecture Network). Following are some recent news and needs from the Haiti team. We will be sending out updates regularly as Haiti progress reports. Yes, you can unsubscribe:) See below. Immediate Needs: Currently our field team are looking to fill the following immediate needs urgently. If you can help, please email us. 1) Diesel SUV (any brand, Toyota easiest to repair and maintain in Haiti) 2) Creole/French Speaking Design Fellows. Please see the design fellow opportunity. This is a great opportunity to give back and be a part of the long-term recovery effort. 3) Structural Engineers (on-going). Please sign-up to volunteer if you are interested. 4) House Share: We're considering renting house if you are working in the area and want to share accommodation, please email us. We can let you know what the rates would be. Team on the Ground: Our program management team is currently on the ground in Haiti. It includes two regional program managers.... Learn more. School Site Visits: Work is beginning on the Haiti School Initiative. Our Haiti team recently paid a visit to Cité Soleil–an extremely impoverished neighborhood of Port-au-Prince–to evaluate the conditions of schools affected by the quake... Learn more. StudentsRebuild We're very excited to be partnering with the Bezos Family Foundation and Global Nomads Group to inspire students to support and follow the long-term recovery effort in Haiti. We'll be working with middle and high school students over the coming years. Know a smart kid? Haiti Inflation We're beginning to put together preliminary costing for schools and managing the reconstruction program. Inflation means that our funds will be stretched to the limit. Milk? $12. If you are working on costing, email us and let's share notes. Volunteer Opportunities: Our goal is to invite volunteers to support projects in the field starting in the summer. This is contingent logistics and security on the ground. If you read the cost information above, you'll see that housing and transport are going to be hurdles. If you are interested in going, we'll be sending a followup email with instructions in the coming weeks. Please look out for it. Please Note: Architecture for Humanity's funding is limited. All volunteers will need to cover the costs of their own travel, food and accomodation. More details to come! Volunteer Sign-up: Friends who are interested? Let them know how to sign-up. We'll add them to this email.

PKN Santa Cruz in the News

A nice bit of press coverage for PKN Santa Cruz from the Santa Cruz Sentinel. Chip, director of the Santa Cruz Downtown Association, first became aware of Pecha Kucha several years ago and began the application process to launch "Pecha Kucha Nights" in Santa Cruz. Concurrently, Crystal Birns, coordinator for the City Arts Program, had been discussing a similar idea with the Museum of Art & History. Two months ago, the first Pecha Kucha Night launched at club Motiv in downtown Santa Cruz to a packed house. On Friday, the second "Pecha Kucha Night" will be hosted by MAH, under the leadership of Emily Hope Dobkin, with nine presenters presenting their "works in progress." Read the full story here. The city's Vol. 2 happens tonight.


Exhibition "Design Ah!"

As part of Roppongi Art Night 2013, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT teamed up with the global PechaKucha organization for two very special sessions of 20x20 presentations -- part of the exhibition "Design Ah!" -- starting with a kids workshop during the day that was followed by a presentation session, and then a regular PechaKucha event for adults in the evening. The kids workshop took place before the session, with a group of children who had applied to take part. They all had a couple of hours to take photos of things they found interesting in the area, and then prepare a PechaKucha 20x20 presentation. The evening session featured a fun mix of design talent, and kicked off with a presentation by Roppongi Art Night’s artistic director Katsuhiko Hibino. Both session were hosted by PechaKucha founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, along with renowned graphic designer and director of the "Design Ah!" exhibition Taku Satoh.


Projects Monetization Problems

Yuriy Lozinsky, GOSPay Managing Partner, and Exigen Services Delivery Director, in the spirit of D'Artagnan with a sparkling and subtle humor talked about the problems with projects monetization on PKN Dnipropetrovsk IT::Start-up Vol. 9. The performance was in the spirit of European top management speaches, that are able to make reports simultaneously on a very serious topics and to discuss everyday life topical problems. And that had Yuriy Lozinsky, the word "gamification", "cases", monetization of the office, discussion about relevant advertising was perfectly combined with the Musketeers jokes à la "But, thank God, have friends, And, thank God, the friends have a sword" and "monetization of the project - it's like a corvette - taxi, pass the fare!".
