Building Bridges, Not Walls at the US - Mexico Border

BY WILLIAM HELM
@ VOL 134 ON MAR 18, 2016

"We hope whoever becomes president builds more bridges instead of walls [because] we are sister cities, divided only by the river."

In Building Bridges, Not Walls at the US - Mexico Border from PKN Tokyo Vol 134, PechaKucha Night El Paso City Organizers (and acclaimed architects) William Helm and Edgar Lopez describe the symbiotic relationship of the sister cities of El Paso and Juarez. The residents of the two cities activate a third space of the US/Mexico border, called "Pass of the North"  which produces a rich milieu of creativity, art and culture. In this place which was historically known as "Paso del Norte" along the Spanish road from Mexico City to Santa Fe, the two cities have come together to use the PechaKucha conversation to bridge across the border. 20 x 20 x 2 cities = building bridges not walls.

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.

PKN Posters: Santa Cruz Vol. 3

Calling geeks of all shapes, sizes and sorts! Santa Cruz has set their Vol. 3 theme to the beat of a very eccentric drum: "Geek: Obsession". PKN Santa Cruz organizer Chip has this to say about the evening's plans: Ten presenters will provide us with a window into a topic that inspires their geeky nature. We will hear presentations on a wide range of topics from bands, to beer, to water, to fonts. This groovy vintage view-master poster was put together by the fine designers at Cosmic; give 'em a hand!  To see more great posters from PechaKucha Nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.

PKN Posters: Santa Fe Vol. 1

Coming up in just under a month in the desert state of New Mexico is the very first PechaKucha Night in Santa Fe. Organized by Colleen Rubart, this new series looks to be an exciting one -- it's already been featured on the Santa Fe radio show "The Voice of Santa Fe" (interview with Colleen Rubart begins about 31 minutes in). Here's what she had to say about the moody, atmospheric poster made for PKN Santa Fe Vol. 1: "...the artist who created this, Elizabeth Starks, is a graduate of Santa Fe's Institute for American Indian Arts, the only four-year degree fine arts institution in the U.S. devoted to contemporary Native American and Alaska Native arts. Elizabeth is currently a web designer at Ohkay Owingey Museum at the Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo in New Mexico." It's not only great to see an organizer who really embraces and understands PechaKucha, but also one who showcases local talent within their respective communities. Check out the PKN Santa Fe Vol. 1 event page for more details on this exciting evening. To see more great posters from PechaKucha Nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.
