PKN Vilnius Vol. 1

PechaKucha Night made its debut in Vilnius back in January, and although they also had an event during the "Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti" in February, here's a look back at Vol. 1, with the following report from organizer Benas Plentas-Buivydas. On January 28th the first event of PechaKucha Night Vilnius hit the city with great success. Vilnius PechaKucha Vol. 1 took place in the heart of Vilnius' old town at the underground bar "Woo," and was overcrowded by people. The evening’s lineup included the designer of the newest Lithuanian Country logotype, an architect presenting a project on how to decorate the embankments of Vilnius' river Neris, a presentation on the Vilnius city marathon, a presentation on a young female design company, a very hot presentation by a designer of female underwear, and the presentation by a speleologist about the Lithuanian caving record. The highlight, however, turned out to be a presentation made by a Vilnius-born easy-going guy named Vytautas, who unexpectedly enthroned a very sensitive issue about the false image and stereotype of the second biggest city in Lithuania, and also in an easy form advised how to solve the problem using popular social networks.

I Lost Precious Time, But In the End, I Found My Calling

Jennifer Penner is an architect at Studio Southwest Architects in Albuquerque, NM. Her story starts as an intern architect responsible for logging her internship hours across 16 categories in the industry’s Intern Development Program. It should have only taken three years to complete. Five years passed, and she had not started simply because the form was intimidating. Someone took her hand, showed her the way, and she found her calling. Comfortable in team settings and solo adventures. Jennifer brings strong creative, technical, and research talents to her projects and easily adapts to her environment using her 'soft skills'. Her passion lies in helping others. This is her "Why". "By Finding a Better Way" is her "How".
