Keep Portland Weird

PRESENTED ON APR 13, 2018
IN TOKYO @ VOL 156

From naked bike rides to goat yoga, the unipiper to Portlandia, PechaKucha Portland, OR organizer Kathryn Peck always knew Portland was a unique place, but only when she moved there did she understand all of the wonderful things that it had to offer.

裸のバイクライダーからヤギのヨガ、コスプレでバグパイプを演奏する集団ユニパイパーなど、Kathryn Peckさんは以前からポートランドが独特な土地であるとはわかっていましたが、実際現地に住んでみると、そこでの全ての奇想天外かつ素晴らしいことは必然なんだと納得しました。

Intersecciones: Havana and Portland

BY DANIEL DUFORD
@ VOL 18 ON JAN 07, 2016

"[Havana] is a small city but it created a lot of history and expectation. The American ideas about 'Cuba frozen in time' don't play out. It's both incredibly worldly and intimately local."

In Intersecciones: Havana and Portland from PechaKucha Night Portland Vol. 18, speaker Daniel Duford tells us about being a co-curator of Intersecciones: Havana and Portland, a gallery show featuring six cuban artists at Louis & Clark College. He explains the process of curating a show featuring contemporary Cuban artists.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, May 30th, 2016.

Collage City

BY JEAN-MICHEL REED
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people."

In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December 14th, 2016.
