"The city landscape is constantly changing... it's impossible for one person to do it alone."
In Watch this Space: Christchurch Street Art at PechaKucha Night Vol. 29, Lindsay Chan shares her discovery of numerous murals popping up around the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. In response to the recent natural disaster, many local artists have taken to the streets to create a lively atmosphere through adversity and art.

“The border is a very difficult place to describe. Anything I say about it, I'll also say the exact opposite about it.”
In Borders Visualized from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, speaker Kerry Doyle presents the mission of the Rubin Center for Visual Arts at UTEP with a selection of work from exhibitions over the first 10 years. Borders are meant to divide. As border tensions rise, artists –both performance and visual– have been creating works to represent the relationship between the bordering cities of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. The Rubin Center now has a decade’s worth of stories to show and tell.

PechaKucha Night Vol. 1 in Tegus
Greetings from Tegucigalpa, or we locals call it, Tegus! In 3 very short weeks we will be launching the first PechaKucha Night ever in our Central American country of Honduras. We have just revealed our amazing poster designed by the very talented designer Alicia Medina, a cool lady whose experience includes illustration, branding, and art direction among other things. The poster design is based on popular local handicrafts that are a symbol of Honduras - handpainted clay roosters in bright, happy colors. During this first volume of PechaKucha Tegus we'll be sharing stories from chefs, yoginis, actors, film directors, artists, street artists and even beer brewers. It's bound to be a vibrant mix of ideas and interesting people on this warm summer night. We'll keep you all posted on how our very first night goes. We're really excited and we think it'll be a total hit. Til next time!
Words fail me to describe the evening events. Again, the co-sponsorship by Kingston on the Edge guarranteed a large turn out as we squeezed together and became friends within the book laden confines of Bookophilia. A few rearrangements later we were comfortable - some seated, other standing, all enamoured by the presentations. The crowd was made up of a number of familiar faces, Pecha Kucha Night Kinsgton veterans and past presenters, and a couple new faces as well. All swearing to return. The nights presenters took us on a visual tour of Kingston, and parts of the Caribbean, others in their varied life they call a profession. Each image touched us, leaving us swelled with inspiration. Thanks to all who came out... however we have more planned for the summer.
