SITEWIDE Search Results: “City Guide”
Our 2012 global event had the goal of celebrating every PechaKucha Night city, worldwide. It was a weeklong celebration (February 20-26) that brought all PechaKucha organizers, presenters, and attendees together, with a focus on highlighting all of the amazing cities that make up the global PechaKucha community.
"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
Once a year on February 20th — the anniversary of PechaKucha’s founding — we celebrate the proliferation of worldwide creativity, and the amazing interconnectedness of cities from all over. PechaKucha Global Night is a coming together — a time where we recognise that each PechaKucha Night is not alone, but part of something greater. Find a PechaKucha Night in your city and join in the global festivities!

Tokyo Totem - A Subjective Guide
BY EDWIN GARDNER
@ VOL 126
ON JUN 24, 2015

At PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 126, Dutch explorer Edwin Gardner introduces a new type of city guide called "Tokyo Totem" which attempts to look at Tokyo in a more experiential sense. Compiling a purely objective guide of the largest city in the world is simply exercise in futility, hence Gardner's fresh angle. The book is coming together with a long list of collaborators over many visits to Tokyo. Tokyo Totem will be released later this year, so be on the lookout for it and we will keep you updated!

In the Shadow of The Beatles: Growing Up in Liverpool
BY JOHN GLENN
@ VOL 7
ON MAY 25, 2017
Growing up in Liverpool, England—which makes him a Liverpudlian—John E. Glenn lived his teenage years in the shadow of The Beatles. At a time and place of great musical significance, the Mersey Sound unfolded as a driving force behind the British Invasion of the United States music scene in the 1960s and beyond. John traces the geography and history of Liverpool as a globally leaning maritime city, noting that The Beatles were uniquely gifted, yet a logical outcome of the city’s diversity, passion, and location. He suggests that the Fab Four could not have conquered the world if not born in the perhaps-unlikely environs of the great world city known as Liverpool.

A Guide to Presenting at PKN
This is an oldie but goodie. Tokyo Art Beat's Paul Baron, who also works at the Tokyo-based bilingual design company AQ, wrote back in 2007 a guide on how to prepare a great Pecha Kucha Night presentation.
A Guide to Landscapes, Improving a Train Station, and Rampant Inspiration in Gothenburg
Presentations João Nunes is an architect, and in this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Catania Vol. 10) he talks about the challenges involved in working with landscapes. This usually means having to balance elements such as time, conditions, and the type of terrain, along with very different materials. In "A Rough Guide to Wakefield Kirkgate" (from PKN Barnsley Vol. 4), Sharon Shepherds shares a few ideas on what could be done to make the historic Wakefield Kirkgate station look better. Posters We've got two new additions to our Tumblr blog, including the poster for PKN Manizales Vol. 3 you see pictured above, as well as the two sides of the PKN San Antonio Vol. 6 flyer. Photos We have quite a few photo galleries to share with you today, some from PKNs that happened a while ago (so not necessary from a city's latest volume). Pictured above, PKN Hanoi Vol. 1.PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 9 [Flickr]PKN Marseille Vol. 17 [Facebook]PKN Catania Vol. 6 [Flickr]PKN Albury-Wodonga Vol. 1 [Flickr]PKN Hanoi Vol. 1 [Flickr] We shared a report by PKN Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson recently (about the city's recent Vol. 31), and here's a follow-up on the topic of instant inspiration:Sometimes inspiration travels fast. The day after PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31, presenter and sushi chef José Seruda went out in the city to find edible ingredients inspired by Klara Hansson who presented about "The edible city" the same night, and during the beer break served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants. José's own hunt resulted in a brand new starter dish using Daisy, Garlic-mustard flower and Dandelion Leaf served as part of the omakase offering the same night at his restaurant Hoze. I'm guessing it's this kind of passion for experimentation with ingredients and flavors that might be the reason many consider Hoze one of Sweden's best sushi restaurants. Below is a video of Klara going hunting for wild plants in Gothenburg city on a previous occasion and within 30 minutes serving up a fresh mushroom salad. How has a PechaKucha presentation inspired you? Calendar As we covered yesterday, tonight's (Wednesday, May 23) calendar includes PKN Prague Vol. 29, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3, PKN Leksand Vol. 4, and PKN Copenhagen Vol. 20.

A Guide to Post-Racial America and Urban Renewal in Genoa
Presentations Duante Beddingfield is a local writer whose work can be found in the Dayton Daily News and on the Welcome Dayton website. With his presentation (from PKN Dayton Vol. 10), Duante hopes to help guide us towards a post-racial America, by going through the "dos" and "don'ts" of having a black friend. Beatrice Moretti and Paola Sabbion are architects from URBAN LAB. In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 1), they cover a project called the new City Urban Planning. The project involved the announcement of the Genoa Urban Plan 2010 through the publication of the Urban Lab Notebooks, and the staging of the exhibition "Genoa Today, Genoa Tomorrow" in December 2011, an extraordinary instrument of participation and opportunity for discussion. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster you see above, for PKN San Juan (in Argentina) Vol. 7. It was designed by Francisco Riveros of Mundo Estudio. Photos We'll hopefully have more to share in the coming days, but for now here's a peek (above) at what the recent PKN Innsbruck Vol. 1 looked like -- and the event poster was posted to our Tumblr blog prior to the event. Calendar Tonight (July 19) we have St. Albert's first PKN, and there's a special edition PKN in Chicago. Tomorrow, it's Tijuana's turn to host its very first PKN, while Waterville has its Vol. 8.
