"By and large, most people thought it was time for change. And I was going to be part of that change."
In "Disabling Labelling" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3, writer, mentor, and idealist Ann Hawkins passionately talks about equal opportunity and the modern world lessons that she insists we must learn that race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, and all the various labels that we are so accustomed to assigning each other, have very little to do with the kind of people we actually are or how effective we can be in the world. "It's time to tidy up our language" she adds referring to limitations labels give us, concluding "we owe it to the next generation."

”I created Porn Nails as an interactive installation and performance using miami kitsch aesthetics and the flamboyance of the Miami chonga”
In Porn Nails from PechaKucha Night Miami’s 31st volume, speaker Rosemarie Romero presents a project near and dear to her heart. Rosemarie created Porn Nails as a unique performative art piece which embodies the Miami aesthetic, feminism, female drag, excess, and sisterhood. She bonds with women while doing their nails at the same time listening to pop music, talking about sex and sharing dirty jokes.

The Fear of Sharks, Learning from Villains, and the Making of a PKN in Cagliari
Presentations We all have irrational fears, and for quite a few, sharks top the list of that which is most feared. In this presentation (from PKN Louisville Vol. 3), Paul Sirek goes beyond the Jaws of Spielberg, and reveals the true nature of these creatures. And what can we learn from the most villainous villains of them all? In his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10), Nicolas Vargas takes a stab at listing 10 super villains, and explains the important lessons he has learned from their mistakes. Posters We end the week with a few new posters on the Tumblr blog, including the one pictured above, for a special edition PKN happening in Chicago on July 19, as well as posters for PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7, and for PKN Erlangen Vol. 3 and 5. Here's more on that special event in Chicago: WHEN LESS IS MORE... In association with the Society of Architectural Historians, PechaKucha Night Chicago heads for a summer road trip to the Louis Sullivan designed Charnley House in Chicago's Gold Coast. An intimate venue to be sure (so we wont get three hundred in there). Get tickets early and enjoy this amazing Chicago treasure - for one night only - invaded by PechaKucha Night. All ages show. Information at Facebook. The officially fantastic poster of this Volume is designed by Akemi Hong for the SAH. And watch out for another downtown extra Volume in mid August. Also in a very cool venue... Video It's been a week of videos, and so why not end it with another one, this time covering the recent PKN Cagliari Vol. 3, both the event itself and behind-the-scenes. Calendar Here's what you can expect in terms of PK action over the weekend. First, tonight (July 6), you'll find the following three events: PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 13, PKN Pisa Vol. 2, and PKN Castellon de la Plana Vol. 1. On Saturday, there's PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11, and PKN Marseille-Provence Vol. 19, which marks that city's 5th anniversary. On Sunday, you can catch PKN Christchurch Vol. 14 -- see this post for more on that event, and an update on post-earthquake Christchurch.

To Feel at Home
Most of us can say with certainty that our idea of home is tied to a specific location. Can you? Roshi Givechi spent much of her youth on the move -- even now, she travels about Asia for work; never truly settling on any one place -- and in "To Feel at Home", today's Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 104) she defines the elements, experiences, rituals that as a whole form her amoebic idea of this concept we hold so dear.
The Fear of Sharks
We all have our fears; some rational, some not so rational. In today's Presentation of the Day, "The Fear of Sharks" from PKN Louisville Vol. 3, in a rather comedic manner Paul Sirek confesses his irrational fear of being attacked by sharks ... while in the swimming pool. Paul goes beyond Spielberg's Jaws, reveals the true nature of sharks, and confronts his fear in the ocean.

A Female's Survival of Music Production
“Really I think part of surviving is communicating, reaching out, creating a dialog with men and women to increase the availability of women in different roles. I think obviously this is a microcosm in music but I think it's probably true in every field” In A Female's Survival of Music Production from PechaKucha Night Portland’s 15th Volume, Musician Natasha Kmeto discusses surviving in the contemporary music industry. From overcoming the music industry's glass ceiling to defying expectations set upon her by gendered stereotypes she admits that her actions are somewhat political.
