The Importance of History, Life Lessons from Sao Paulo, and PKN Champaign-Urbana Illustrated

Presentations History is important, we can surely all agree on that, but with his presentation (from PKN Memphis Vol. 2) Justin Thompson wants to make sure we all get the message. Entrepreneur and graphic designer Gustavo Garcia uses his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10) to teach us 10 important life lessons, regarding work, jobs, life, career, and more. Posters The new posters on the Tumblr blog today are for PKN Moscow Vol. 19, PKN Columbus Vol. 22, and PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 10, which is the beautiful fully illustrated poster you see above.  Photos Today we'll point you to photos from last month's PKN Tokyo Vol. 93, taken as always by Michael Holmes -- we have galleries up on both Facebook and Flickr. Our Vol. 94 is coming up -- on Wednesday of next week (July 25) -- and since August is always a skip month for us here in Tokyo, it will be our last PKN of the summer. Calendar It's a quiet Wednesday with no PKNs happening tonight, but tomorrow (July 19) you can look forward to St. Albert's very first PKN, as well as a special edition PKN in Chicago (more details in this post).

7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living

“I’m that annoying friend that can’t just sit and watch a movie, I knit and watch a movie. But I also make really awesome homemade gifts for everybody so you know– they can only get so mad about it.” When you hear the word “homestead” what do you think of? I think of the old west in the US of A’s past, of folk heading out into the unknown with just their wits and wares and know-how. In 7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Volume 28, speaker Kimberly Coburn would do just fine out there on her own given that she is helping revive the hand-me-down knowledge that was once passed from generation to generation but has somehow stopped now. Sewing, smithy work, growing food, glass making, and more! Tune in to hear Kimberly make the case for bringing back the “old knowledge”!

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 19 - 'Lessons'

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 19 - 'Lessons' We're going back to school for PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 19. Inspired by the start of the new academic term, we thought we'd focus on what lessons our speakers can teach us over the course of the evening. So if you've ever fancied learning how to be a calligraphist or wondered about whether we can or should love robots, or had aspirations of being a comedian, then this PechaKucha is for you. All of our speakers will be taking the PechaKucha 20x20 challenge: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide, no stopping. For Vol. 19 we're going to PLANT, NOMA's latest development following the awesome Pilcrow Pub, now overseen by our friends, and PechaKucha alumni, OH OK Ltd. PLANT offers everyone the chance to learn a new skill through their wonderful array of free and cheap workshops. The only condition: whatever you do has to make Manchester greater. On the night you'll get to play with ceramics and see PLANT NOMA'S drawing robot in action. Plus, we'll have Emma Reynolds who will draw your portrait in 3 minutes. And finally, our resident photographer Fiona Finchett will be presenting her latest exhibition on the wall space around the venue. So get down early to check out all that's on offer. The doors open at 19:00 and the talks start at 19:30. We'll have a beer break just after 20:00. The talks should be finished by around 21:00 where you'll have a chance to mingle afterwards before inevitably heading across to The Pilcrow Pub for last orders.    Speakers Joyce Lee - Calligraphist Chris Tavner - Comedian  Dr Scott Midson - Postdoctoral Research Associate, The Lincoln Theological Institute Matthew Shribman - Science Presenter, Innovation Consultant​,​ Musician and Tutor Rhys Archer - Researcher PhD student and founder, Women of Science Duncan Craig - Founder, Survivors Manchester Matthew Holmes - The Derelict Explorer Sue Platt and Robert Hamilton - The Society of the Spectacles   Thanks Thanks as ever to our paper sponsors, G .
