Looking for a National Park
BY HAWORTH HAYHOE
@ VOL 26
ON JUL 05, 2016
Artists partnership Haworth Hayhoe like to celebrate overlooked patches of land in urban settings by constructing National Parks in them. In Looking for a National Park from PechaKucha Night Coventry Vol. 26, the artists talk about their commission for City Arcadia, which constructs a National Park in Coventry, complete with canyon, coal seam and river teeming with un-noticed flora and fauna. They encourage us to look afresh at the spaces we so often overlook, and explore what status and pride of place a label like 'National Park' confers.
A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space
BY JOANNA GILLESPIE
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
"This is my 6-minute memoir. A mediation on impermanence."
In A Brief Memoir of Architecural Space from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, independent arts consultant and co-organizer of PechaKucha Buffalo, Joanna Gillespie, delivers a meditation on twenty of the fifty places she has lived since birth. From Victorian-era structures in Buffalo, NY and San Francisco, CA, to the wilds of the 1970's California coast, to modern and efficient rural Japan, to a Postmodern art utopia in Maine, and beyond, Gillespie recounts a particular memory from each space. Through all of the temporal landscapes we find ourselves in, Gillespie concludes, "We forge on, either clumsily or assuredly. We keep on keeping on." Even if we move fifty times.

Classic Worst Climbs
BY MIKE BESTWICK
@ VOL 6
ON NOV 01, 2018
We've all heard of "best of" lists: best albums, best cheeseburgers, best PechaKucha speakers, what have you. So what did Mike Bestwick do? He flipped the script. Trying to climb the highest peak in Glacier National Park in a single day would indeed be worthy of inclusion on a best-of list, if not for the cold, hard realities that accompany an adventure of this magnatude. No food? No daylight? No problem for Mike! (just don't ask him about prescription painkillers)

Getting Things Done Through ADD and Remaking the Brazilian National Anthem
Presentations Kerry Crawford has ADD, "real bad." She uses her presentation (from PKN Memphis Vol. 2) to not only explain what ADD really is and how it affects her, but also uses the disease to teach others how to get things done. We live in a world of remixes, and in his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Rafael Rosa offers up and sings his new version of the national anthem of Brazil. Posters Today's additions to the Tumblr blog are led by quite a few posters from PKN Hyderabad (Vol. 6-10, with a few examples below), as well as PKN Tijuana Vol. 1 (pictured above), PKN Cairns Vol. 5, and PKN Mendoza Vol. 6.

Reexamining an Abandoned Amusement Park, Teaching Kids How to Deal with Disabilities, and Guerilla Projecting in Providence
Presentations A presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 15) by Anthony Spinello and Augustina Woodgate about a project in Berlin called Kulturpark, taking place in an abandoned amusement park. Here's more on the project from the official website:In the Treptower Park forest in East Berlin, along the Spreeriver, there is an abandoned amusement park. The park, originally called Kulturpark Planterwald, was built in 1969 by the GDR and was a rare site for Soviet amusement and attraction. After the fall of the wall, the park became the family-owned Spreepark and suffered challenges of access, attendance, and economy. In 2001, the park closed from capital collapse. Ever since, visitors have regularly traversed the fence to explore this jungle of broken thrill machines. In June 2012, Kulturpark will explore the poetics and potential of these recent ruins, building upon the unique energy of Berlin’s urban, social, cultural, and political landscapes.Marina Potanina is the president of a charity foundation called To Kids About Kids. In her presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 12) she talks about the project, and the creation of an animated series about school life for a group of kids, with one of the main characters being a girl in a wheelchair. In Russia, there are no books, TV, or other examples of adequate communication with people with disabilities. Marina believes that if we start by talking to kids about these issues, that our society will be changed. Posters We end the week with a Tumblr blog update that includes quite a few older posters: PKN Beirut Vol. 11 (pictured above), PKN Sevilla Vol. 9 and 11, PKN Jakarta Vol. 10, PKN New Orleans Vol. 4, PKN Chicago Vol. 18, PKN Louisville Vol. 1, PKN Dublin Vol. 1, PKN Christchurch Vol. 3, PKN The Hague Vol. 5, PKN Victoria Vol. 3-6, PKN Huddersfield Vol. 1, and PKN Los Angeles Vol. 28. Photos We spotted this photo (by Twitter user @parulia, who was attending her first PKN) taken at this past Wednesday's PKN Providence Vol. 41 -- we sure love the guerilla nature of the venue and projection wall. Calendar There's just one event tonight (August 31), with Kumamoto hosting its Vol. 4. Then, you can look to Saturday for the following two events: PKN Hyderabad Vol. 10 and PKN Kathmandu Vol. 6.

Nature of the Onega peninsula has amazing energy...
“Nature of the Onega peninsula has amazing energy. You want to stay alone with youself here…”The national park "Onega Pomorie" took part in the international event "Pecha-Kucha Nights". It was organised in Malina cafe, Severodvinsk. Angela Zabaldina, a staff of the national park, presented one of the most large-scale photoprojects with sperical panoramas of the Onega Peninsula. “Our virtual phototour is your private guide. It can tell a lot about these magic places”. More than 15 thousand shots were made for creation of spherical panoramas. For that photographer Ilya Barmin covered 240 km on foot. It took two weeks. You can make a virtual journey on the national park website http://onpomor.ru/view/virtualnoe-puteshestvie/". Now there are nearly 250 panoramas, all of them have text descriptions.“The virtual tour is a good beginning to know the Onega peninsula better. The next step is an actual trip”.Angela also spoke about day-to-day activities of the national park, touristic routes. She answered the questions about volunteering, possibilities to visit the national park, how many tourists it has every year.
Art of Warning: Making of the Flood Drawings
"A few springs ago, I looked out over San Francisco Bay and I saw the city rising in the distance, above the fog, and I thought - I am going to draw water!" In "Art of Warning: Making of the Flood Drawings" from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 8, artist Mary Ciani presented “Flood”, her recent series – from drawings of living in harmony with first rivers to urgent ones warning of storm and final deluge. She looks, too, at visionary artists with images of the past, future, inventive assemblage, and spiritual connection. Even a prayer to the earth is included here. The drawings were collected into a book and art show.
City Focus: Kalispell
This weeks city focus is on Kalispell, Montana, the gorgeous valley with a secret key to Glacier National Park. Rich with Native American influence, Kalispell is directly translated in Salish to “flat land above the lake.” Kalispell is the home to beautiful wildlife, trails, and mountain ranges, all interwoven by strikingly blue lakes nestled between. The vast space of Kalispell is reflected among the open minds that are coming to speak at PechaKucha Night Kalispell Vol. 5. Hope to see you there!
