We kick off this week's presentation highlights with our first one from Auckland -- recorded at the city's Vol. 17 -- featuring Callum Dowie demonstrating his take on the portable disaster relief shelter.
How You Can Help
We here at PechaKucha HQ in Tokyo are finally coming to terms with all that's happened since Friday. We of course thank everyone who has been checking in on us with concern. The devastation that occured and that is airing on the news everywhere happened in the northern part of the country, and so here in Tokyo it's more about dealing with energy conservation, and hoping that larger aftershocks don't happen (we are still experiencing a steady stream of smaller ones). We have checked in with the organizers in Sendai (the part of Japan that was the hardest hit) and Nagano, but have yet to hear anything back. If you'd like to help, let us point you to this info page that our friends at Ultra Super New have put up instead of the regular front page to their site -- USN is the studio that built the PechaKucha site. Update: The Nagano organizer, Toyoshima-san, has posted news on Mixi (Japanese social network) that he's fine. For Sendai, our messages have been bouncing, probably due to lack of electricity (servers down). Update 2: PKN Miami organizer Carl Hildebrand has brought this to our attention -- sales of a print by Emily Shur -- one of the many efforts to help raise funds for disaster relief. Close to half a million have been displaced due to the earthquake, and help efforts are in urgent need of funds for supplies. It should also be noted that the Japan Society is taking donations directly, with 100% going to disaster relief (no admin fees). I've posted on my personal blog a list of items that you can buy, with all proceeds going to disaster relief as well.
Flyer for PKN Longmont Vol. 2
Longmont will be hosting its next PechaKucha Night (Vol. 2) on April 8, at the Firehouse Art Center. As announced on the flyer, during the event organizers will be accepting donations for the Japan Red Cross, to help with disaster relief.
The Quakebook project -- also known as #quakebook -- has been an amazing crowdsourced collection of stories about the Japan Earthquake, put together in weeks by the mysterious Our Man in Abiko, and now available as a Kindle version for sale on Amazon (with 100% of the proceeds going to disaster relief). We were honored at our Inspire Japan event here in Tokyo to have a presentation about the project by Roberto De Vido and the reclusive Our Man in Abiko, that you can watch online here.
Poster for PKN St. Louis Vol. 7
PechaKucha Night in St. Louis Vol. 7 happens tonight (September 8) at Mad Art Gallery -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. The poster you see above was designed by Firecracker Press, and a limited number of hand-printed editions will be sold with all proceeds going to Joplin relief.
Gardens of Winter
“What caught my eye was the border between the man made landscape, and the natural landscape.” Printmaking MFA graduate Hannah Skoonberg speaks on her art work, which explores the concepts of memory and object. In “Gardens of Winter” from PKN Knoxville Vol. 5 she speaks about how her art — composed mostly of paper — is fragile, vulnerable, and though based on real-life useful objects is unusable due to the material used in its construction.
Brewing with a Purpose
"I love that I can drink beer and something good can come out of it."In Brewing with a Purpose from Brooklyn, Vol. 3, Kota Kobayashi shares how he decided as a child that one day he'd brew his own beer. Many years later, in response to 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami disaster in Japan, he created Ippon Matsu Beer. His One Pine Tree beer received massive donations from all over the world which he has used to help small business owners with disaster relief in Japan. His advice to us - "Don't get ready, get started!"
How To Make Printmaking Accessible To All
"Our goal is to teach people how to run the presses and then allow you guys to come in here and use them for your own purposes."In How To Make Printmaking Accessible To All from Knoxville, Vol. 14, Bryan Baker shares his collaborative printmaking project and garage-turned-studio-workspace-gallery-space, Striped Light. Team headquarters for a trio of creative minds, they will be publishing, collaborating, and exploring tangents of their own volition as works are developed for the Striped Light catalog and portfolio, at the same time opening their printshop to the public for learning workshops. The team of experienced printers will also be available for hire, offering limited-edition custom letterpress design and printing for events, business ephemera, and artistic ventures.
Art En Vivo

Its aim is to promote the craft of printmaking, empower artists, and engage the community to engage with art. The project will feature 52 artists in 2016 and travel the world beginning in 2017.
