Stand Up Paddling

BY HENRIK FAHLÉN
IN VARBERG

SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world. (in Swedish)

Poster for PKN Gisborne Vol. 8

Gisborne will have its PechaKucha Night Vol. 8 this Friday (February 10) at the Gisborne Hotel. Here is more on the event, from organizer Pene Walsh:Always on the lookout for new venues and presenters, this summer we are hitting the DB in outer Kaiti. A popular venue in the 1970s we reckon, the bathing beauty on the poster would have been a regular at the DB. Plush carpets, swanky bars, lounge and the pool – this was the place to be. They still have a presidential/honeymoon suite that is pretty top notch. This summer is an important PechaKucha Night for our organising team as we will never be the same again – the date for the event is all timed around the impending birth of Sarah’s (and the lovely Matt) first child. Although she has cleaned out the linen cupboard already we reckon she will make it through this last PechaKucha Night in one (not 2) piece. It may not have been much of a summer as far as sunshine hours go this year, there has been heaps of entertainment and it isn’t finishing yet – this time around we have local MP Moana Mackay presenting – who knew she is a scientist? Last PechaKucha Night audiences were surprised when Shauna Ratapu announced she was resigning from her job and was going to follow her dreams – I think her boss in the audience got a bit of a shock. She is back and is going to let you know just how far she has taken the dream – it is a beauty of a story. Other presenters include an artist with an unusual story of nuns to tell, a sports fanatic who will surprise, a clever cushion maker, a DJ, a mad obsessed bamboo bicycle maker and a couple of extra bonus presenters.

What is PKN anyway?

What's Pecha Kucha Night? It’s a community event where presenters are given six minutes and forty seconds to share a story, a hobby, an experience, or pretty much anything else. The Pecha Kucha format is also called “20x20,” because each speaker will have 20 slides that will display for 20 seconds apiece.Why the funny name? Pecha Kucha was developed in Japan, where pecha kucha is a common word for chitchat.  More than anything, Pecha Kucha Night exists to get conversations started! The audience can share lots of questions and comments with each other and the presenters during intermission and after the event.So, what kind of presentations are we talking about? Will I be bored? You will not be bored. An array of topics is covered at each PKN! Past topics have involved: Travel, hunting, crafts, science, health, sports, philosophy, creating art, and building a house of mud and straw! PKN presenters aren’t professional speakers—they’re just people with twenty images and less than seven minutes to share stories with the community.Is this a sales thing? Absolutely not. In fact, PKN is a nonprofit organization. We just love chitchat.Is PKN family-friendly? Yes! Each presentation is suitable for all ages.

White Spots and Doubt

In 2012, David Maney wrote and performed a theatre-show based on his experience being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. This show eventually became known as "White Spots," a humorous look at the traumas that plague us daily. In his presentation (from PKN Tokyo, Vol. 102) he discusses the ugly sides of ourselves, our fixations, and various flavors of doubt.

A collectively presented Pecha Kucha

At our March 2013 event, PKN Coventry Vol 12, we tried a new twist on the improvised Pecha Kucha presentation. To fit with our theme of "The 10 things I would do to make Coventry a better place", I prepared 20 slides - images of aspects of Coventry. In the interval, cards showing one of these images were randomly handed out to people in the audience, with the request that they come up with one (20 second) 'thing' inspired by that image to add into the presentation. Here is an short version of the list of the things the audience came up with: 1. (image of the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum) Open for longer and later. Still free entry and expand the programme of groups using the space. 2. (image of the Cathedrals) Open up the recently discovered 14th Century crypts and let people see the bodies! 3. (image of the Ellen Terry Building) Bring back the cinema for the public! 4. (image of alleyway by Druckers off Hertford Street) Make sure the lights always work and it's safe to use. 5. (image of ring road flyovers by sports centre) Get the chicken knitters (as mentioned in Richard Tomlinson's PK earlier) to knit some socks for the ring road legs...(yarnbombing!) 6. (image of the river at the back of Palmer Lane) Open up the river. 7. (image of back of sports centre) I'm amazed that these used to be steps up to a restaurant! 8. (image of the side of St Mary's Guild Hall) Keep the heritage weekend. 9. (image of County Hall) More independent, and less w*nk bars! 10. (image of timbered former tourist info building next to Holy Trinity) Should be Tourist Info and a tourist destination. 11. (gate near Bishop St) This is near the Refugee Centre. The Refugee Centre has been welcoming refugees for more than 10 years, but it had to remain hidden for a long time. The refugees that have settled here over the last 10 years are now making a huge impact in the city. Reinvention, positivity and social value. 12. (image of the precinct) We should all be 'Poogilantes' to prevent people from stepping in undesirable poo on pavements, always carry a chalk to circle, label and help others avoid! 13. (image of stairs near Coventry Market) Step into Coventry Market - Coventry is full of interesting buildings, spaces, nooks and crannies. Go and explore - and champion - them. 14. (image of the circular cafe in the Lower Precinct) Create a public painting - or guerilla weaving workshop here. Cover it in colour. 15. (image of Cullen ceramic mural in the Lower Precinct) Give more jobs to glass blowers, artists and other people who put the colour in. 16. (image of public artwork in Shelton Square) Make a hidden art trail - so people can find these. 17. (image of former Evening Telegraph building) Offer this building to artists and craftsmen... 18. (image of Whitefriars Monastery from the subway) Crowdsource some citizen photos of Coventry - what its people see as beautiful - and use these as the images on official council and other establishments websites. An ever-changing selection which showcases current events and developments and maybe even engenders civic pride! 19. (image of graffitti) A paint amnesty. 20 (image of the cross on the ground of the Priory Place visitor centre garden) Coventry obviously needs more pirates - there's buried treasure here that needs digging up....!

Joseph Tame

Presenting at our Tokyo Designers Week edition PechaKucha Night (Vol. 107) on Wednesday, October 30 is our good friend Joseph Tame who will surprise you with his talk about how he (may have) brought 2020 Olympics to Tokyo! Whilst wearable technology has a history tracing back to the abacus-on-a-ring of 1600's China, it was only once Joseph Tame started wearing multiple health monitors and live streaming cameras during the 2009 Tokyo Marathon that it really took off. A trend setter within his own parallel universe, Joseph reveals how his passion for combining mobile technology, sports and art (may have) led to Tokyo being awarded the 2020 Olympics. たくさんのテクノロジー機器と一緒にマラソンをされる有名なランナーJoseph Tameさんも10月30日のPechaKucha Night 東京(東京デザイナーズウィークにて)に登場されます。
