Do Not Settle

BY WAHYU PRATOMO & KRIS PROVOOST @DONOTSETTLE ON INSTAGRAM
@ VOL 12 ON NOV 27, 2014

"We want people to appreciate the city from a new point of view."

In Do Not Settle from PechaKucha Night Breda Vol. 12, the photographic research study by Wahyu Pramoto and Kris Provoost captures the ever-changing megacity of Shanghai from a new angle. Rooftops have long been inaccessible and neglected usually only used as a place to store mechanical equipment, however these platform open up a new opportunity to study the rapid change happening in this world financial hub.

The observations show the rich history of Shanghai’s urbanism and reveals the unfair fight currently happening where Shanghai’s heritage is losing against the overpowering pressure of the shiny skyscrapers.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 27th, 2017.

Amanda Swartwout

Do you have what it takes to be a karaoke queen? Amanda Swartwout apparently does, and so the focus of her PechaKucha Night in Seattle Vol. 12 presentation was on that exact status. Also, as organizer Ana Silva explains, "there [was] a blank slide, which was actually filled by an audience member doing a grand tamborine solo -- hilarious..." Below, a few photos of Seattle's "resident Karaoke Queen" and friends in action.

PKN Seattle Vol. 29

From what PechaKucha Night in Seattle organizer Ana Silva tells us, last Thursday's Vol. 29 was an amazing one, and it even included a special guest, PKN Chattanooga organizer Matt Brown, who was greeted with "a super warm welcome" from the PKN Seattle team. Ana is also prepping for the next PKN in Seattle, which will be held on April 16, part of our Global PechaKucha Day charity event -- more details on that very soon.

PKN Seattle Vol. 30

Seattle recently had its momentous Vol. 30, and from organizer Ana Maria Pinto da Silva we get a little peek at what the gathering looked like (above) -- you'll find the list of presenters on the official event page. We're told it was a really fun event -- there was even a presenter who accompanied his presentation on guitar. A new PechaKucha Night series is going to start in Bellingham, and the new organizer was able to drop by the Seattle event to check in and see how they do things there -- and you've got to figure they're doing something right, considering they were celebrating their 30th edition!
