The Case for Transit

BY DOUGLAS FUNKE
@ VOL 19 ON MAR 14, 2018

"It was a streetcar network that reached into all the nooks and crannies of Buffalo."

In The Case for Transit from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, President of Citizens for Regional Transit (CRT) in Buffalo, NY, Doug Funke, recalls the days of efficient streetcar transportation in Buffalo, New York and advocates for improving the current public transportation challenges in the Buffalo Niagara region. The 1950's and 1960's saw a decline in public transport and a car-focused lifestyle with pockets of transit isolation. Funke and the CRT advocate for a return to a more climate-friendly and sustainable approach to public transportation.

Not Just an Hour on Sunday

BY DAN DE LEON
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 02, 2015

A pastor's work is never finished. With the socio-religious landscape being altered dramatically by falling church attendance, the rise of social media, and one's faith and spirituality no longer being determined by an hour of worship on a Sunday morning, the demands of pastoral ministry are more complex than ever. Reflecting on ten years of ministry, Dan De Leon gives a glimpse into his experiences as a pastor with hopes of dispelling the myth that ministers only work for an hour on Sundays.

PKN Cleveland Vol. 3

PechaKucha Night returned to Cleveland earlier this month for a third edition, and as you'll see from the photos -- there's a Flickr photoset -- it was another great showing for the city. On top of the city greetings exchange we mentioned yesterday, we're pretty excited about the venue that organizers Mike Christoff and Raseem Parker are planning to use for Vol. 5 (to be held in the fall), "a virtually abandoned Subway Tunnel/Bridge Deck that runs underneath Cleveland's Detroit Superior Bridge in conjunction with an Arts Fest." Should be amazing. Below, a few more photos from PKN Cleveland Vol. 3. The next edition will be held at the Sterling Building July 10.

Istanbul's BUMK Jazz Choir

A great little news story courtesy of PechaKucha Night in Istanbul organizer Nurten Mericer.BUMK Jazz Choir, who won our hearts with their spectecular performance on the PechaKucha Night İstanbul Vol. 9 stage last May, quickly made their way to the top and secured the ‘World Champion’ title in Graz, Austria, on July 10. After Conductor Masis Aram Gözbek declared they were selected for the Championship on stage, the Choir spent some sleepless nights and supported by Finansbank and Pegasus Airlines, they were determined to get the Cup. They won two gold medals in the Contemporary and Folk categories, and were the first runner-up in the overall challenge. The Choir’s legendary video was shot in an Istanbul Subway Train by another PechaKucha Night İstanbul Vol.9 presenter, music video director Deniz Özgün, and it has been viewed almost 1,000,000 times.

PKN Kyiv Vol. 7

Kyiv took part in the Global Cities Week with its PechaKucha Night Vol. 7, and you'll find a few photos from the event as well as a report in this blog post (here's a Google Translate version of it). You'll also find the list of presenters on the event page. Here are a few words from organizer Timofey Yevgrashyn:So far it was almost the biggest number of people who attended our events, and it was definitely because of the "city" topic -- there are so many people who like their city and want to know more about it and of course about PechaKucha ;-) We got 10 interesting speakers who were passionate about their topics and helped us see the history, architecture, learn about our subway, tourism and, of course, about people who live in our city.

A collectively presented Pecha Kucha

At our March 2013 event, PKN Coventry Vol 12, we tried a new twist on the improvised Pecha Kucha presentation. To fit with our theme of "The 10 things I would do to make Coventry a better place", I prepared 20 slides - images of aspects of Coventry. In the interval, cards showing one of these images were randomly handed out to people in the audience, with the request that they come up with one (20 second) 'thing' inspired by that image to add into the presentation. Here is an short version of the list of the things the audience came up with: 1. (image of the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum) Open for longer and later. Still free entry and expand the programme of groups using the space. 2. (image of the Cathedrals) Open up the recently discovered 14th Century crypts and let people see the bodies! 3. (image of the Ellen Terry Building) Bring back the cinema for the public! 4. (image of alleyway by Druckers off Hertford Street) Make sure the lights always work and it's safe to use. 5. (image of ring road flyovers by sports centre) Get the chicken knitters (as mentioned in Richard Tomlinson's PK earlier) to knit some socks for the ring road legs...(yarnbombing!) 6. (image of the river at the back of Palmer Lane) Open up the river. 7. (image of back of sports centre) I'm amazed that these used to be steps up to a restaurant! 8. (image of the side of St Mary's Guild Hall) Keep the heritage weekend. 9. (image of County Hall) More independent, and less w*nk bars! 10. (image of timbered former tourist info building next to Holy Trinity) Should be Tourist Info and a tourist destination. 11. (gate near Bishop St) This is near the Refugee Centre. The Refugee Centre has been welcoming refugees for more than 10 years, but it had to remain hidden for a long time. The refugees that have settled here over the last 10 years are now making a huge impact in the city. Reinvention, positivity and social value. 12. (image of the precinct) We should all be 'Poogilantes' to prevent people from stepping in undesirable poo on pavements, always carry a chalk to circle, label and help others avoid! 13. (image of stairs near Coventry Market) Step into Coventry Market - Coventry is full of interesting buildings, spaces, nooks and crannies. Go and explore - and champion - them. 14. (image of the circular cafe in the Lower Precinct) Create a public painting - or guerilla weaving workshop here. Cover it in colour. 15. (image of Cullen ceramic mural in the Lower Precinct) Give more jobs to glass blowers, artists and other people who put the colour in. 16. (image of public artwork in Shelton Square) Make a hidden art trail - so people can find these. 17. (image of former Evening Telegraph building) Offer this building to artists and craftsmen... 18. (image of Whitefriars Monastery from the subway) Crowdsource some citizen photos of Coventry - what its people see as beautiful - and use these as the images on official council and other establishments websites. An ever-changing selection which showcases current events and developments and maybe even engenders civic pride! 19. (image of graffitti) A paint amnesty. 20 (image of the cross on the ground of the Priory Place visitor centre garden) Coventry obviously needs more pirates - there's buried treasure here that needs digging up....!
