Local Markets, Global Interactions
BY LAUREN WAGNER

ON SEP 07, 2016
Commerce is so ubiquitous that we do not even see it as a center for the exchange of goods and ideas. Are the market places the hearts of the cities that pump and distribute the flow of human activity or the brain where the personality of a city resides?

PKN Gothenburg and Oslo Collaborate
This could be the start of a new trend with PechaKucha Night cities: PKN Gothenburg and PKN Oslo have developed a new "exchange program." The idea is that when one city holds an event, one of the presenters from the other city's last PKN will be invited over. It's win-win: as a presenter, you know that if you put together a great presentation that you may be invited to present elsewhere, and as an organizer, you know you are going to be getting a great presenter from out of town. Pictured above, Swedish designer Jens Thoms-Ivarsson of Thoms & Nilsson, who was the first presenter from Gothenburg to also present in Oslo, back in November of last year.
PKN Cleveland Vol. 3
PechaKucha Night returned to Cleveland earlier this month for a third edition, and as you'll see from the photos -- there's a Flickr photoset -- it was another great showing for the city. On top of the city greetings exchange we mentioned yesterday, we're pretty excited about the venue that organizers Mike Christoff and Raseem Parker are planning to use for Vol. 5 (to be held in the fall), "a virtually abandoned Subway Tunnel/Bridge Deck that runs underneath Cleveland's Detroit Superior Bridge in conjunction with an Arts Fest." Should be amazing. Below, a few more photos from PKN Cleveland Vol. 3. The next edition will be held at the Sterling Building July 10.
Swedish Style 2009
Today's presentation comes courtesy of the one and only Ewa Kumlin, founder of Swedish Style in Tokyo, who talks us through the event's history -- this year was Swedish Style's 10th anniversary. Ewa is Managing Director of Svensk Form, founder of Swedish Style in Tokyo now celebrating 10 years and the organizer of PechaKucha Nights in Stockholm. Ewa and Swedish Style have done so much to promote cultural exchange between Japan and Sweden -- and shows what positive energy can do in the world, here's to another 10 years. Ewa Power for Ever! The presentation was part of a special Swedish Style edition of PechaKucha Night at SuperDeluxe during Tokyo Design Week -- all of the presentations from that night's event are now up, and accessible from this page.
PKN Toronto + Inspire Japan
Toronto will be a part of the Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan event on April 16, with the city's Vol. 8 taking place at the Design Exchange Trading Hall -- see the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. The poster was designed by Paul Kawai of Bruce Mau Design, and the event will include a presentation by someone from Architecture for Humanity's Toronto branch. Co-organizer Vivien Leung also tells us that during the event they'll be skyping in with Vancouver, and possibly other Canadian cities.

Cultural Exchange Through Humor and an Art Support Group in Indonesia
Presentations Luke Lawrence and Mika Karashima are from the British Council in Japan. 2012 is an exciting year for the UK, with the London Olympics and Paralympics games, as well as the Diamond Jubilee. In their presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93), that explain how the British Council in Japan has launched a campaign named the GREAT OGIRI to promote the usefulness of learning English and exchanging culture through humor. Raymond Malvin's presentation (in Indonesian, from PKN Jakarta Vol. 8) is about Kopi Keliling, a movement (in the form of a variety of creative activities) that believes that art and creativity can make changes that are meaningful to the Indonesian people. By juxtaposing art and creativity (both in terms of work and the person behind the work) to a wider community, it hopes to promote a desire to produce art. Kopi Keliling allows talented young visual artists to display their work through events held regularly, moving from one public space to another. Although the intent is to showcase the works of these artists, Kopi Keliling understands that without an audience these works are meaningless, and so another goal is to create interaction between the audience and the art (and artist). Posters We have just one new poster on the Tumblr blog today, and it's an uncovered "blast from the past" from 2010, for Bialystok's very first PKN. Photos Today's gallery [Flickr] covers Springfield, Illinois' Vol. 6, which was held back in February. The city's next event, Vol. 8, is set for August 2 at the Capital City Bar & Grill Theatre. Calendar Tonight's (July 10) event takes the form of PKN Huancayo Vol. 10, and tomorrow you need to look to Nashville, for the city's Vol. 7.
