Collaboration and YOU
BY SHANTELL MARTIN
@ VOL 72
ON APR 21, 2010
"Get out of your head and into your body, hell yeah."
A sentiment we love, and one we think you will too as you watch Shantell Martin's presentation about collaborations, done while the artist was based in Tokyo (she is currently based in NYC).

Aarhus Lindy Hoppers
BY AARHUS LINDY HOPPERS
@ VOL 39
ON MAR 21, 2019
Starting out with a dance routine - which you sadly had to be there to witness - the two lovely ladies from Aarhus Lindy Hoppers (Sarah-Linn Brandstad-Hindal & Dovile Mikutiene) swing by to tell us about their love for the dance.
But as they both explain: It's much more than just a dance. It's a great community, with a lot of people across the globe to share it with!

Whether you've always wanted to know about this mythic art space or know nothing about it, this presentation is worth a look.

Fun by Design
Design can be beautiful, simple, and stark -- so why not add fun to that list? In today's Presentation of the Day, "Fun by Design" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 77, Koichi Suzuno (of Torafu Architects) shows off three design projects he has worked on in his spare time. From kitchen tools in the shape of children's building blocks to a small wooden table that can be hung over the railing of your balcony, his small projects all incorporate -- to a certain degree -- an element of fun.
Putting the Fun into Funky Spaces
"So after a lot of beer we decided to make a big, traveling park that flies to several locations all over the world." HUNK Design duo Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos come from Rotterdam, Netherlands and here they show off some of their radical interior and exterior design work. In "Putting the Fun into Funky Spaces" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 116 we see that from funky interior redesigns and remodels, to outdoor patterned park spaces using artificial grass, HUNK is changing the way people use and interact with space.
Born Into Fun
"I have an insatiable need to be around people, how they think and experience the world." Filmmaker, Culturist, Wanderer, Chloe Walter-Wallace talks about being born into fun, growing up Jamaica. In "Born into Fun" from PKN New Orleans Vol. 13 she speaks about finding her path and love for anthropology which has lead her to her true passions for documentary film-making, working with non-profits on various media related projects, and her constant love for Jamaica.
Education = Fun
We need to redefine the role of the teacher. We don’t need information transferrers or deficit detectives, we need treasure hunters who direct children along their paths. Visual journalist Janna Ulrich speaks on the importance of connecting and relating disparate subject within education. In “Education = Fun” from PKN Breda Vol. 7, she suggests that education currently lacks core elements of fun, analysis, and empathy.
5 reasons why Pecha Kucha is **THE** night out in Coventry this Friday...
Yes, it's Pecha Kucha night at the Tin Music & Arts centre from 7pm this Friday, here's 5 reasons why this night of merry amusement just might be for you... 1) If you like TED talks, stand up comedy or open mic nights - Pecha Kucha is sort of like all three rolled into one. At each night there's a massive mix of zany, opinionated, inspirational and downright oddball people talking (or perhaps shouting, dancing, miming or singing) through a series of 20 images. You don't have to worry about stifling any yawns, each person is only allowed 20 seconds per image... before you know it you've had six and a half minutes of eclectic entertainment... and after 3 or 4 you realise the £3 entry is definitely giving your two bob's worth. 2) TFI Friday and alcohol is served. The Tin offer loads of continental drinks and local brews including Coventry's very own Byatt's beer. 3) Fighting winter flu? You can watch Pecha Kucha from your sickbed - All the Pecha Kucha presentations are put online at www.pechakucha.org/cities/coventry. Seriously laugh-out-loud recommendations from the Pecha Kucha Coventry 'Christmas' edition are: How to Annoy Your Friends on Facebook at Christmas by Simon Fairbanks and Placing Children on Your Lap: the Art of Ventriloquism by Michael Mayhew. You can also follow antics via Twitter live on the night @PKN_coventry. 4) Try it and like it? You can go to a Pecha Kucha night ANYWHERE in the world. Originally starting in Tokyo (the tongue twisting "Pecha Kucha" title means "chit chat"), nights now take place in over 700 cities worldwide. So next time you're surfing the Air B&B waves to Dubai, Budapest, San Francisco or Paris you can also take in a Pecha Kucha night*. 5) If you get the itch after seeing (and possibly secretly mocking) others, you can have a go too. Anyone is welcome to sign up to 'do' a Pecha Kucha night on any subject, in any style, with any images and props you might care to use. Once you've completed this curious right-of-passage, you realise there's no return; it's addictive, it's fun and it's a serious preference to sitting in and worrying about your post-January diet. See you on Friday! *disclaimer - not all nights may be as good as Pecha Kucha Coventry. Please also note that you could be educated or inspired and that there's a serious risk of meeting people... PECHA KUCHA COVENTRY Friday 20th February 7pm-11pm 'Design your City' - a theme for Global Pecha Kucha Night @ The Tin Music & Arts (formerly Taylor John's House), Leicester Row, Coventry, West Midlands, CV14BN Presenters, event details, maps here.
Let the fun begin
I found Pechakucha years ago but one thing after another got in the way and my opportunites to attend and host have alluded me. Now for whatever reason, it feels good to be able to take up this challenge this year. I have lots of anxieties about this as well as excitiment, will I get enough people to present? what if its only my hubby and the local cat as attendees? what if i cant find a regular venue? what if what if what? I do have to put into practice now that well known moto "if you dont ask you dont get". As I write this I am setting up the logistics before I can go wild and advertise, Facebook - Check, Twitter - Check, Pechakucha Milton Keynes page set - almost complete .. a little more info needed. arghhhhhhhhhhh I'm so excited !!
First Pechakucha in Warwick
Our first Pechakucha evening will feature a variety of subjects, ranging from trout fishing to sloths.
Improv is proving to be fun!
We thought that no-one would have time to prepare a presentation in December so we thought we'd just get together for a bit of fun. As a change to all the other Christmas parties, we suggested that anyone who fancied having a go could improvise a presentation by talking in the PechaKucha style to a set of slides they hadn't seen before. Seven brave souls volunteered. Roger Clarke was first up, wearing his Christmas jumper! He told us a tale about working at the British Library, getting his ducks in a row and many other things inspired by a set of images pulled from our City Organiser's Instagram account! Colin Ramsey came next, interpreting a set of slides based on colour and giving us a travelogue! Berenice Smith didn't know she was going to volunteer until she found herself on her feet, confronted with a set of gothic horror images that she used to tell a story about her family! Experimenting with a double act, Andrea Joyce and Rachel Extance described an excursion to a wildlife park. On Twitter Andrea said "What a weirdly exhilarating experience it was to give a #PechaKucha talk to slides we had never seen before. Big love to the storytelling genius that is @RachelExtance for being my partner in crime for this improv fun" Rachel said "We were given a stage and a microphone. We could have regaled the room with anything. We had a chat about cheese sandwiches - in front of a picture of a leopard." Comedy gold award goes to Andrea for the comment " ... but isn't everyone disappointed when the sandwich turns out to be just cheese?" Carri Pavitt was triumphant in her interpretation of a set of slides based loosely on travel and is now so hooked on PechaKucha that she's signed up for her third presentation on March 20th! "I'm going to tell you about my life as an art thief", said Jon Torrens. As his unexpected slides included a lot of archectural plans, he was able (maybe a little too expertly) to descibe how to get in and out of various buildings and the art works they had housed before he got his gloved hands on them! We owe a huge thank you to our brave volunteers (some more voluntary than others!) who entertained us with their hilarious improvised presentations and sent us all home with huge grins on our faces and to Lucinda Price Photography for the photos!
