PKN Vienna in the News
httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHjlUHsPxL4 You'll need to understand German to completely understand the report, but even for us non-speakers, it's still nice to see the recent PechaKucha Night in Vienna Vol. 8 get some TV coverage on one of that city's news programs.
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.

HURRAY! Finally published online
HURRAY! Japan has hit the PUBLISH button, and now our presentations from July 4 are all online available to be seen and hear! Granted, it took Hasnain, Tim and myself a bit time to sort out the audios syncing with the images, and then making sure the descriptions were appropriate, but yet catchy for the reader. (Any comments would be appreciated!) I am excited because this is the indicator that Erfurt is not only to be found on the PechaKucha calendar, but actually now has talks to join the PK ranks worldwide. Interesting is that a few COVER pages were changed, but then again the PK committee are more experienced in knowing what will draw attention to a topic. Even my title was slightly tweaked, but I can live with that. In German one would say 'man kann immer dazu lernen'. In other words, one can always continue to learn (something new). My motto anyway! It is now August, and we are slowly getting in gear for making sure some of the presenters for NOVEMBER 22 are lined up. From our own experience, we realize that putting together a PK takes time and planning. Simply having 20 images is not the key, but rather having a topic broken down into 20 aspects, which in turn complement an image. Although it is the middle of summer, here in Erfurt, we have yet to see a continuous warm front. In a way, I am glad because then we would be complaining it is too hot (especially in a country that does not have air-conditioning in stores, as well as in trams). Thanks again to all speakers and guests who made our first PECHAKUCHA NIGHT #1 Erfurt a memorable evening! We look forward to seeing you in November, and if you have an idea that you want to share, please let us know! Barbara (and Hasnain and Timothy)
Glass is HOT!
"What began for me and others who participated in a 1972 Chihuly workshop, 40 years later is an amazing expression of the creative spirit captured in glass." In "Glass is HOT" from PechaKucha St. Joseph Vol. 2 Jerry Catania share's his love for making glass art. He dives into his interesting history of being a student of famed experimental glass sculptor Dale Chihuly and how that experience led him to pioneer and cultivate over a decade of healthy and successful creative workshops and programs with a community that cherishes its new found glass culture in St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, Michigan where he and his wife Kathy run the Water Street Glassworks.
The Neglected Basics
“Maybe it was the school, maybe it was the programs, the teachers, the increasing descent into despair– which often happens in art school– but I did not feel i was being taken seriously. Every time I steared towards comics, I felt that I was being pulled over by the art police and fined for indecency.” In The Neglected Basics from PechaKucha Night Bergen’s 4th Volume, Visual Communication student Anette Aga addresses the lack of focus on art in academia. This is a great problem for those who would go through academia to become a designer or illustrator. Comics, in particular, being so important to so many cultures, are unduly ignored.
