ON DEC 02, 2015
The Locals was set up at the start of 2015. We want to uncover the people, places and things that make us proud of our city and tell their story.
The Locals produce our own shows and collaborate with people on events around the city like markets, festivals, screenings, parties, pop ups, banquets, venues….these are the sort of things.
They do them under different names like Toejam, Telephones and The Eat Up. The Locals is the umbrella name for it all.
They’re from Dublin and proud of it. They know this city is world class and want to see it at the table with the like of Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Berlin. They're doing to do their bit to help.

PKN Sheffield Vol. 2
It's always fun seeing the difference in venues that the global network of cities use when hosting their PechaKucha Nights. In Sheffield, based on the photos found in this Flickr photoset (from last month's Vol. 2), they do it in a kingly manner, with presenters sitting around a long table.

More Magazine Library, a 3000-seat Venue for Koszalin, and a 'Raucous' Night in Nishinomiya
Let's take a look at what's happening in PechaKucha today. Presentations As we promised yesterday, we continue to share presentations from last Friday's special PechaKucha event at the Magazine Library exhibition. Today you can hear Antonin Gaultier talk about his new digital Tokyo fashion magazine, De Rigueur (available for Kindle), and Tokyo-based designer Ian Lynam shares some of the magazine titles that have had a big impact on him. Posters Two new posters today on our Tumblr blog, starting with the one (above) for the upcoming PKN Koszalin Vol. 9 (on May 25). You see a piece of the amazing venue where it will be held in it, and below, a better look. You'll also find the beautifully illustrated poster for PKN Barcelona Vol. 16. It's the Koszalin Amphitheatre, and it can hold 3000 spectators -- that's PKN Tel Aviv territory! Events We of course have a few new galleries of event photos to point out, and the photo above is an oldie but goodie, from PKN Beirut Vol. 8 (the most recent event in that city was last week's Vol. 14).PKN Ferrol Vol. 7 -- you'll also find a video of the entire evening A special event in the town of Skorping, organized by PKN Aalborg's Annette Scheibel (photos by Mathies Brinkmann) [Flickr]PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]Here we have a report from PKN Nishinomiya organizer Brent Jones on the city's recent PKN Vol. 12:Friday, April 13 (that's right . . . Friday the 13th) was another raucous night of creativity and fun at CUBE in Nishinomiya. We continue to attract an eclectic mix of presenters, and this beautiful Spring night was no exception. We started the evening by showing Mark Dytham’s PechaKucha Global Events presentation from the PKN website. We explained to the audience that we are locked into our set events (because our venue is a school), but that we try to promote these events as much as we can. Our first live presenter was Teruko Ashida, who introduced her organic fruit farm in Amagasaki and the events she holds there. Peter Sterlacci followed up with a lively introduction to Personal Branding. Shuji Narita came next with a humorous look at common English mistakes made by Japanese, and he was followed by Carmen Tamas and Shawn White swapping musings about the charms of Japan and Romania. Our Beer Break was followed by a PKN formatted workshop on Old School Hip Hop by Warren Decker. Natsuko Shiraishi then introduced her work with groups of indigenous Mangyan on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. The audience was then treated to the trials and tribulations of learning how to scull by Richard Miller, and Wes Lang rounded out the night with a poetic look at Unkai, or the sea of clouds that can be viewed from various summits in Japan. We again enlisted the help of several students in introducing the presenters and keeping the evening full of unexpected twists and turns, and are already looking forward to PKN Nishinomiya Volume 13 on July 6th.Calendar As we mentioned yesterday, tonight (May 15) you can look forward to PKN Helsingborg Vol. 8, and then tomorrow night (May 16) Wagga Wagga will be hosting its PKN Vol. 6.
We're excited to announce our new venue. In 2013 PechaKucha Night Breda will take place in Mezz. You might know the cocoon-shaped copper building for it's many concerts, it's perfect spatial and technical set up make it a perfect PKN venue as well. For 2013 we've set four dates, make sure to write them on your calender: 28-02, 02-05, 01-10 and 10-12. More details on the upcoming PKN#5 will be online soon.

A Great Night!
Thank you Santa Fe! Our AMAZING eight presenters really brought the creative juice to Volume One! Or as one attendee said, 'It's like a perfect slice of Santa Fe.' A wonderful start to a healthy PechaKucha career here. Our room at the Travel Bug was full, and we spoke with several people who already volunteered to present at Volume Two. We also gained great new volunteer organizers -- already we're thinking about Volume Two. Please be in touch if you can suggest venues, speakers or if you'd like to help: PechaKucha.SantaFe@gmail.com. THANK YOU again to all attendees for trying something new, and to our incredible and brave and creative speakers. Great job!!! Peace love and PK, -CR

PKN San Antonio Goes to Church
PechaKucha Nights are held in all manner of venues, and as you can see here, the latest PechaKucha Night in San Antonio (Vol. 12) went to church. The cool, night air of the Southwest School of Art courtyard gave way to an intimate yet cavernous setting for PechaKucha 12 in Coates Chapel. The evening of Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, saw veteran and first-time PechaKucha attendees and presenters with practically every seat inside the dark, serene building occupied for the prescribed 20 slides for 20 seconds presentation format. Read the full event report from Rivard Report here.
