BY MERYL MURMAN

Twin Peaks Ain't No Hogwash
BY ZACK GODSHALL
@ VOL 5
ON JUN 30, 2017
It’s been said that without Twin Peaks, "half your favorite shows wouldn’t exist." Even though it may not be one of your favorite shows (yet), Zack Godshall would like to go ahead and throw his new web series Hogwash into this category of "Would Not Exist Were It Not For Twin Peaks." Are the shows similar? On the surface, not really. But inspiration is a funny thing, and he'll try to mine this and other mysteries in the hopes of revealing why Twin Peaks ain’t no Hogwash.

BY ADAM DARRAGH

ON OCT 27, 2017
When Adam Darragh was looking at grad schools, he tried to do a dual masters program in Divinity (ministry) and Film, and everybody looked at him like he was crazy. To them, the worlds were completely different from each other. To Adam, however, both involve trying to tell stories of Ultimate concern, that hit us right in the heart, and in human history, two things have existed through every era, even though we have no objective need of them: religion and art. Join Adam, as we look into religion, art, and living a more imaginative life.
There Goes the Neighborhood
BY ERIC DEXTER

We hope that you were able to make it out to PechaKucha Night Cleveland - Volume 21, which took place last Friday evening at the citadel of free speech, The City Club of Cleveland. It was a yet another truly magical evening here in Cleveland listening to amazing, creative and inspiring stories. As many have noticed, space was fairly limited at about 450 people, and we needed to distribute tickets via our Facebook page(still FREE:) to make sure we did not take the venue beyond their capacity. If you were not able to make it out, have no fear, we video taped the entire evening and are planning on posting those presentations as soon as we can process them. A special thanks goes out to Dan Moulthrop, Carrie Miller and everyone at The City Club of Cleveland for making that such an amazing partnership and evening. We are looking forward to partnering with them on many events in the future. Also, if you did not have a chance to make it out, or you did and just can't get enough inspiration, you have another opportunity TONIGHT to be inspired. The event titled "DesignDiversity - Powered by PechaKucha" takes place at Take 5 in downtown Cleveland. The event doors open with a Happy Hour from 7-8pm and the presentations will start at 8pm.

We are going to be working hard throughout 2014 to not only bring you GREAT PechaKucha Night events, but we are going to be aggressively working with various organizations to fill the calendar with Powered by PechaKucha opportunities in between. What is "Powered by PechaKucha" you ask? Powered X PKN events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, but still utilize the 20 images x 20 seconds format. The events will be completely organized by other organizations and oftentimes have very different focuses, but PKNCLE is going to do what it can to support each event it can to help everyone tell their creative stories. If you are interested in hosting a "Powered by PechaKucha" event, please email us at email@example.com and we will definitely reach out to talk about the process.
