Poster for PKN Bahrain Vol. 4
PechaKucha Night in Bahrain Vol. 4 will be held this Friday (March 4) at the Amwaj Beach Club which, considering the cold gray weather we're enduring here in Tokyo, sure sounds nice. Organizer Mohammed Janahi tells us that one of the presenters will be Bahraini Nourah Al Sayeh, curator of the "Reclaim" project, winner of the Golden Lion for the best National Partcipation at the International Architecture Exhibition (Venice Biennale). The poster for the event was created by Bahraini designer Ebrahim Al Mulla, and here are a few words from him on the concept:The land of pearls, or so did our grandfathers call Bahrain, has always been known for its exquisite treasures. The message of the PechaKucha team is to carry out this tradition, by diving and searching for these shining pearls of Bahrain, and give them the opportunity to cast their glittering creative shine and broadcast themselves.
Diving With Sharks, the Process of an Artist, and Photos from Bowling Green
Presentations National Geographic diver Mark Addison presents (from PKN Durban Vol. 7) his love for the marine life of the Durban coast. We also meet his daughter, who is one of the youngest people to have dived with sharks. In his presentation (from PKN Hjorring Vol. 1), artist Michael Maguire walks us through his works, talking about the process required to produce each, and how they all tie into his vision. Posters PKN Norrkoping Vol. 20 was held earlier this month, and here's a look at the poster that was produced for the event, which is today's addition to the Tumblr blog. Photos We kickstart the week with this photo gallery [Flickr] that gives a peek of what Bowling Green's first PKN was like. From the photo above -- of attendees, or possibly presenters -- it looked like a pretty fun evening. The city's Vol. 2 is already set for November 26. Calendar There are no events happening tonight, but tomorrow night (October 30) you can look forward to the following four PKNs: PKN Eureka (Montana) Vol. 1, PKN Grand Rapids Vol. 5, PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 27, and PKN Pittsfield Vol. 4.
Back to Origin
