City Focus: Salt Lake City

This week's City Focus highlights the beautiful, mountainous capital of Utah, Salt Lake City. Having recently hosted their 24th volume in March, the PechaKucha creative community is looking forward to seeing more inspiring content from Salt Lake City soon. With their overflowing enthusiasm for bringing out the best in their community, we can only expect PechaKucha Night in Salt Lake City to get better and better from now going forward. Congrats to the new PKN Salt Lake City organizer Shelley Bodily for taking the reigns and continuing to spread the creativity in Utah! We are all wishing you the best in planning Vol. 25!

 

“What you use influences what you create. I say, take that into consideration, try putting down the MacBook, pull out a notebook, and get your Hemingway on.”

In "Analog Creation in a Digital World" from Pechakucha Night Salt Lake City Vol. 16, Writer Tyson Call talks about his appreciation for a typewriter he received as a gift and how it opened up a whole new perspective on the creative process.

"A lot of people think that law is black and white. You are right or you are wrong. Actually I think that to be a good lawyer, to be a good arguer, you have to be creative."

In Creativity in the Law from PechaKucha Night Salt Lake City - Vol. 17Lauren Barros, an accomplished lawyer, believes that in order to be a good lawyer, you have to be creative. Especially when it comes to interpreting the law and how it impacts LGBT couples and families.

Salt Lake City got some rather nice coverage for its recent PechaKucha Night Vol. 12 from SLUG Magazine.

The PechaKucha format is brilliant. Japanese for “chit chat,” it was invented in Tokyo in 2003, and since has spread to almost 800 different locations worldwide. They call it the 20x20 format. A presenter is given an opportunity to choose 20 different slides and talk for 20 seconds about each one. This is an excellent cure for the ailment which plagues many public speeches—people talking way too long, and going on many different tangents. 

Read the full article here. Salt Lake City's Vol. 13 is set for October 13.

Post Century Credenza

Jaren Harbertson

The founder of Modern Union, a local design/build outfit that specializes in modern cabinetry and furniture. A believer in the traditions and earned experience of craftsmanship, the marks of Jaren (and Modern Union's) work are his precision loving 'god is in the details' ethos, his belief that modernism at its best represents innovation and hard won simplicity, and the ability to juxtapose raw, patina-rich materials with sleek lines and finishes creating unique, timeless, character filled, and hopefully, heirloom quality results. Modern Union will happily take on any design project that elevates details to obsessiveness.
Utah Heritage Foundation

Kirk Huffaker

As Executive Director of Utah Heritage Foundation, Kirk Huffaker is an advocate for vibrant neighborhoods and Main Streets, recognition of historic modernism, and excellence in planning and design. Since 1998, Kirk has provided assistance throughout Utah to build local preservation leadership, develop policy, and save historic buildings.
