PKN Gothenburg Vol. 12
Pecha Kucha Night Gothenburg Vol. 12 was held last week (January 29) as part of the 32nd Gothenburg International Film Festival. It managed to fill up the Film Festival tent with over 400, to the chagrin of many in line who didn't manage to get in. Coordinator Jesper Larsson promises an even bigger venue for the next edition though -- on March 25 -- at Park Lane, with a capacity of 650. The photos above were taken by Jesper using the iPhone's Toy Camera app, creating a lovely colored collage -- more here. Below, party pics courtesy of media partner Djungeltrumman -- visit the event page for more.
PKN Columbus Vol. 8
PechaKucha Night was back in Columbus last month for an eighth edition. Held at Landmark's Gateway Theater and with a superb turnout of more than 225, here's a report from that city's organizer Lindsay Kenzig, including quotes from some of the presenters: First of all, we had an amazing event. The energy was great and we had one of our best attended events -- about 225 people, but I think we lost count in the rush at the door. We had an amazing variety of presenters who all had unique things to talk about. Prior to the event, we had several articles written, which helped draw a crowd that had previously been unaware of the event in our city. Our first presenter, Helen Hoffelt, had this to say about her photography: "For us to rise, we have to let go. What weighs us down has to be left behind. Sometimes, what is left behind can be compassionately incorporated into who we are. As we fly, we create a new sense ourselves. We need to pay attention to what our lives teach us. When we do that I believe we all can fly." Cyrus Fire, an artist, said: "It was a one of the most exciting nights of my life." He suggests PKN organizers work with presenters hands-on ahead of the event (for example, helping presenters with breathing techniques). Zaineb Alani presented her work as an Iraqi poet. Her poetry was amazing and very moving. She says that PechaKucha was "a unique opportunity to voice an insight into the 'other side' in a setting that greatly enhanced the content of my delivery." Matt Meindl talked about his film Digital Underpants: "It's a manic stop-motion animated collage made from hundreds of real teenage love notes." On PKN, he "liked the diverse presentations but also the general atmosphere that made it OK to be honest, vulnerable, creative, and silly." Other presenters included: Matt Carbone, an architectural photographer; Matt Meindl, a filmmaker who presented 20 short film clips; Artie Isaac who talked about the democratization of public speaking and his new website SpeakerSite; Reza Reyazi, an urban planner speaking about Columbus' oldest neighborhood Franklinton; Walker Evans, who spoke about his work on the site ColumbusUnderground; artist John Sherman Lathram III, who is working on a new book about body modification; Corey Aumiller, an artist who presented "20 Irrational Fears"; and Kristy Yosick, a master chocolatier. The press coverage mentioned appeared in Columbus Alive and Metromix. PKN Columbus Vol. 9 is set for May 21. Below, a few images from Vol. 8.

PKN Savannah Vol. 2
PechaKucha Night in Savannah Vol. 2 was held back at the end of April, but it's never too late to cover an event, and we absolutely love the panoramic view of the venue -- the Structured Green warehouse -- sent to us by organizer Aaron Cohen, and taken by Travis Linville. Aaron also sends us the following report: The inaugural PKN Savannah that took place in March turned out to be such a fine mix of talent and company that we found ourselves slightly daunted at the prospect of putting together a second PKN to match. The second rendition grew in both scale and audience -- good thing the evening was spent in the expansive and super cool environs of Structured Green's warehouse space. There, with vodka lemonades and PBRs in hand, a stellar crowd kicked back on hand-built furniture as the evening unfolded on the big screen. Musician and writer Rigel Crockett took us aboard the tall ship, Picton Castle, for a trip around the world. Back on shore, artist and curator Harry DeLorme brought us on the road with him to visit the roadside shrines of Northern Argentina. Chef Robbie Wood extolled the pleasures of "clean food" in a graphic few minutes that left the crowd rethinking the food industry. With his art, Ben Bublick showed how art can envelope people in color, form and texture. Erin Salzer Hannah, landscape architect, brought us down to earth again with the demonstrated challenge of creating small, urban gardens. The second half of the program continued the awesomeness with Orlando Montoya of Georgia Public Radio whose impeccable voice and timing kept us raptly tuned into to the history of public radio. Sculptor Andrew F. Scott turned history on its ear with his take on African folk arts. Musician turned collage artist, Matte Wagner took to the mic like he was playing the Fillmore. Craig Drennen had the crowd look straight in the eye of darkness with his brilliant adaption of Shakespeare's Timon of Athens; the experience mapped pleasure, politics and humor in a convergence of representation. The night was capped by tattoo artist Ron Dacosta's bold account of his life and times with the needle. PKN Savannah Vol. 3 is planned for September.
PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 14
PechaKucha Night in Buenos Aires Vol. 14 was held last week at the Ciudad Cultural Konex, enjoying an amazing turnout of close to 600 attendees. Organizer May Groppo fills us in on the night that was. The night started with DJ Villa Diamante welcoming puzzled guests who received cardboard 3D glasses on the door. Volume 14 in Buenos Aires was up to something, and packed (around 600 people). Mandetta (our male host in a dress as usual) opened the event with the cellphone-drawing-in-the-air warm up (since we saw PKN Denver's pics we couldn't resist). The first presentation was from Schwerpunkt and was a 3D experience. It then was then followed by Noavestruz, and then right away by Collage Lab with Nase from Amsterdam and his graffiti and his lovely girlfriend translating the whole speech (love is in the air). Zkysky is a design studio that has been on the market for 20 years now but decided not to show its work and instead shared their daily inspiration. Mariano Sigman is a scientist who studies the brain (neuroscience) and he bewildered us with his findings in such a simple and funny way that left everybody wanting for more. Picnic closed the first part with their home decor ideas and excellent taste. After the break with lots of chatting and drinks, it was time for the NGO of the night, Amartya, with its volunteering projects. Candelaria from Maldón Entertainment narrated her passion for board games and how she was planning for their come back -- amazing story. Pepe Monje and Bobby Flores (celebrities in music and tv) decided to improvise onstage and read an expert from a play they did together while sharing family pictures. ZZK Records made us proud, describing its foray into the international music scene with their mash-ups and cumbia electronica mixtapes. The last presenter was Franco Fasoli (jazz) who showed his street art together with his new more traditional art. See you in October with more creative, weird, funky, funny, and smart people onstage!

PKN Posters: Znojmo Vol. 2
The Czech Republic city of Znojmo hosted their Volume 2 in late October of last year, but that won't stop us from making you aware of their collage-style poster made specially for that event. Utilizing found objects to form the words "PechaKucha" struck us as very clever; the creativity we see here at PK HQ never ceases to amaze. To see more great posters from PechaKucha nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.
Mi nombre es Emmanuel Gaston Visentin, nací el 7 de Febrero de 1985, y crecí en la ciudad de Reconquista. Al finalizar los estudios secundarios, me mudo a la ciudad Capital de Santa Fe donde vivo actualmente. Durante unos años me dedique a estudiar y realizar todo tipo de trabajo, para poder llevar a cabo mis actividades de hobbie y realmente importantes para mi. Hace 10 años me dedico a seleccionar música para recitales, eventos, fiestas o shows temáticos de la ciudad y alrededores bajo el nombre de Emmandub. Gracias a esto pude conocer el oficio de hacer Radio, en el cual llevo 5 años haciéndolo de forma independiente como productor y locutor. Primero trabajando para una FM local, de ahí pude conocer el servicio de “streaming” donde desarrollé una plataforma digital de Radio Online Móvil que me permite realizar cualquier tipo de transmision con solo conectarse a una red. Actualmente estoy trabajando para montar un estudio de radio propio en formato digital para mejorar y abarcar aun mas el acceso de los usuarios, ya sea desde su ordenador, teléfono móvil o cualquier dispositivo que tenga servicio de internet. Obra: “No somos pocos, es que estamos dispersos” Desde afuera se aprecia una obra performática, desde dentro se vivencia una experiencia física lúdica. Para mí es una representación de los vínculos sociales que entraman a los individuos. Utilizo el cuerpo azul como metáfora exagerada de esos lazos para volverlos visibles, contundentes e inquietantes en su impacto visual. Si los cuerpos subjetivados se hicieran cargo de esa trama, ¿Cómo serían? Soy Ariana Beilis, en el oficio de artista visual utilizo la fotografía, instalación, performance, video, collage y el dibujo para generar propuestas interactivas que hablan del cuerpo, del sujeto en sociedad y reflexionan sobre problemáticas sociales. Vivo y trabajo en Santa Fe. http://elhilodeariana.wix.com/ariana-beilis Eva Cabrera es licenciada en diseño de la comunicación visual y trabaja como freelance. También dibuja chistes para la Revista Jirafas, una publicación independiente de historietas de Santa Fe y Entre Ríos. Es un poco actriz y actúa en el espectáculo “Nelly and Mike” del grupo Teatro del Bardo. Actualmente hace la voz de Juana Rueda, de la serie animada “Los Rueda”, producida en Paraná y Santa Fe, para Paka Paka. CINELIMINAL es un ciclo de cine que se viene realizando desde hace dos temporadas todas las semanas, los meses de diciembre, enero y febrero, en la ciudad de Santa Fe. Se exhiben producciones audiovisuales tanto locales como nacionales; y, es organizado por estudiantes de la escuela de cine y artes audiovisuales creada por Fernando Birri (ISCAA). Nuestro objetivo es contribuir a la cultura local mostrando diversas miradas, con el fin de impulsar la reflexión y el debate constructivo.
PechaKucha Gets Collegiate!
We're always delighted to see PechaKucha in the classroom as a tool for learning. Our "mechakucha" friend and PechaKucha Maastricht Organizer, Sueli Kyomi Brodin recently brought the 20x20 format to a class of a 150 international business students at Zuyd University where students learned the value of PK and the art of concise presentations!
"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people." In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape.
