Inspire Japan QR Code
SET Japan has designed for us a beautiful (and workable) QR code that points to our Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan site -- any mobile phone that can read QR codes can point to it, and it will bring them to the site (which is mobile-friendly), where you can make donations directly. We'd like to invite everyone to use the code (you can download it in various formats here), to help spread the word on the event, and to help make it easy for anyone to access it -- it should pop up on Inspire Japan-related posters, flyers, or even as a slide at PechaKucha Nights through April and May.
PKN Cork + Inspire Japan
Cork is taking part in the Inspire Japan efforts, although its event (PechaKucha Night Vol. 4) will be held on April 20 at Crane Lane Theatre, kicking off at 20:00 -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.

The city of Cork will be participating in our upcoming PechaKucha Global Cities Week, with its PechaKucha Night Vol. 6 to be held on February 29 at the Crane Lane Theatre. Check the official event page later as the presenters list gets updated.

Underground Food in Curitiba, Random Acts of Courage, and Teasing You with Upcoming PKNs
Presentations We kick off a new week of presentations with one from Curitiba (Vol. 1) and one from Cork (Vol. 3). In "Underground Food" (in Portuguese), Guilherme Caldas takes us on a tour Curitiba's lesser known culinary highlights. If you've been feeling like you need to get a bit more excitement in your day, try following Niall Doherty and his "Random Acts of Courage." Posters We've got a few new posters on our Tumblr blog, including the ones for PKN Mendoza Vol. 4 (above), PKN London Vol. 6, and PKN Dnipropetrovsk Vol. 1, which debuts tomorrow. Videos Instead of sharing photos today, and since there seems to be an absolute boom in these, today we share a few teaser videos that have been produced for PKNs -- we love them so much that we often play some at our PKNs here in Tokyo. Below, teaser videos for PKN Curitiba Vol. 2, PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 13, and PKN Lisbon Vol. 14. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-J5alkNK6zI httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMu22YtbFiU Links"New voices seek to harmonize with Toledo arts community" [Toledo Free Press]Calendar Tonight (Monday, May 21) you have your choice of the very first PechaKucha Night in the city of Muscat, Oman, or another blockbuster PKN (Vol. 13) in Tel Aviv. Tomorrow (May 22), Montreal will be hosting its Vol. 22, and Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine -- how's that for a mouthful -- will have its first PKN.
Anamorphic Lens Love, an Unusual Flat in Florence, and Ottawa Panoramic
Presentations What's an anamorphic lens? Find out in this presentation (from PKN Cork Vol. 1) by Mike Hannon, as he talks about his love of this photography accessory, leaving you with the following thought: How can something so geeky be so entertaining? In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Pisa Vol. 1), Juri Favilli covers an architectural renovation project for a flat in the middle of Florence's old town. The concept was to have new living areas in which most of the home's functions were placed in the walls. You end up with a living space with almost no furniture, which answered the client's request of wanting an "ordered home." Posters There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so we'll highlight (above) yesterday's PKN Kyoto Vol. 7 flyer -- the event takes place this coming Sunday (June 17). Photos Above, a first look -- and a panoramic one at that -- at the scene for last night's PKN Ottawa Vol. 5, about 30 minutes before the start. As PKN Ottawa organizer Remco Volmer tells us, "the speakers were great, the room was nearly at capacity, and the vibe was terrific." Calendar First up, here are tonight's (June 14) events: PKN Pittsfield Vol. 14, PKN Toronto Vol. 16, PKN Ornskoldsvik Vol. 1, PKN Portsmouth Vol. 11, and PKN Saint-Etienne Vol. 10. Tomorrow, you can look forward to the following four events: PKN Zilina Vol. 19, PKN Orlando Vol. 6, PKN Des Moines Vol. 10, and PKN Paris Vol. 18.

The Morden Heirloom: Coding Quilts
Who knew auto-generated patterns could turn out to be beautiful? Elizabeth "Libs" Elliott merges old craft and modern art forms to create beautiful quilts with a technological twist. In "The Morden Heirloom: Coding Quilts" from PKN Toronto Vol. 29 using the Processing visual programming language, Elizabeth generates random patterns for her quilts by altering code to play with colour palettes, geometric shapes, and other variables. She draws out each pattern by hand and then sews them onto quilts.
